Obama: ‘Consequences’ for ICE Officials Who Don’t Follow Executive Amnesty

President Obama warned workers at the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement: implement executive amnesty, or else. He made the comments in a town hall event on immigration on MSNBC.

According to the White House pool report, President Obama was asked for reassurance that people wouldn’t be deported as the legal battle over the executive amnesty plays out in the courts.

“Until we pass a law through Congress, the executive actions we’ve taken are not going to be permanent; they are temporary. There are going to be some jurisdictions and there may be individual ICE official or Border Control agent not paying attention to our new directives. But they’re going to be answerable to the head of Homeland Security because he’s been very clear about what our priorities will be,” Obama said, according to a partial transcript provided by the pool reporter.

“Not only are we going to have to win this legal fight.. but ultimately we’re still going to pass a law through Congress. The bottom line is I’m using all the legal power invested in me in order to solve this problem.”

“If somebody’s working for ICE … and they don’t follow the policy, there’s going to be consequences to it.”

UPDATE: Here are the remarks, via a transcript provided by the White House:

MR. DIAZ-BALART:  But what are the consequences?  Because how do you ensure that ICE agents or Border Patrol won’t be deporting people like this?  I mean, what are the consequences

THE PRESIDENT:  José, look, the bottom line is, is that if somebody is working for ICE and there is a policy and they don’t follow the policy, there are going to be consequences to it.  So I can’t speak to a specific problem.  What I can talk about is what’s true in the government, generally.

    It should be clear to every American. This “usurper” president expects federal employee’s to obey his unconstitutional Executive Orders that a Federal court has said are unconstitutional and, if they don’t, there will be serious consequences. As a retired Federal Manager, I know exactly what he’s talking about….but, where a Court has already ruled, his Executive Orders are on hold until proper higher review is made. To threaten “unknown” consequences aimed at taking some sort of disciplinary action against an employee who is in fact obeying a Federal court Order is pathetic. What he is telling the American people is the old… as I say, or else directive. Even though a Federal employee would be right not to implement further Obama’s Executive Orders based upon the court Decision, that employee could have “actions” taken against him/her that would create a Hell on Earth scenario for them in the interim. The Federal Government minions WILL take aggressive action against an employee, even if they know it is wrong. This is what Federal employee’s fear the most, as it wrecks their careers and that black mark never goes away. This guy is a real POS, and the American people had better wake up to the fact that he is an enemy of this nation.
