Biden’s Nominee to Lead ICE is Out

The southern border is gravely in need of some real changes and better leadership. Under the current officials, illegal immigration, drug trafficking, and an array of criminal activity have taken place.

Border Patrol officials are being encountered with consistent swarms of large migrant groups they’re simply not equipped to handle. Meanwhile, Joe Biden has thrown his support behind amnesty, while simultaneously enabling policies that encourage illegal border crossings.

Biden also nominated Harris County, Texas Sheriff Ed Gonzalez to lead Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Yet, just days ago, Gonzalez removed himself as a nominee altogether.

Another Failed Nomination on Biden’s Watch
In a Twitter thread, the Harris County sheriff announced that he’s taking himself off the board as an ICE nominee. According to Gonzalez, he’s “grateful” for the president’s nomination, yet believes that focusing on Harris County is what’s best for himself and his family.

During this announcement, Gonzalez also wished the White House well in dismantling “political gridlock” that’s doing a lot of damage across the country.

The Harris County sheriff did not mention that he’s currently facing a court case in which he’s accused of domestic violence. This is widely viewed as a factor that led to Gonzalez removing himself as a nominee to head ICE.

The Texas official concluded his announcement by professing his love for America and commitment to serving Harris County residents.

Amid the massive backlash against the White House for problems at the southern border, the fall of the president’s nominee is yet another strike against his administration.

An Uncertain Future For ICE?
The removal of Biden’s ICE nominee comes as many Democrats have rallied for the downfall of ICE altogether.

Members of Biden’s party who support taking down ICE regularly accuse the agency of being racist, hateful, and anti-immigrant. Then again, these claims come from the same politicians who are on record supporting amnesty and mass border crossings.

Thus far, the White House has not announced a new nominee to take the place of Ed Gonzalez. Coincidentally, the administration also has yet to put forward policies that will reduce illegal immigration, human trafficking, and widespread crimes at the southern border.

From ICE to the ATF and Comptroller of the Currency, Biden doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to his nominees.
