Jerry Seper at the Washington Times reports on more negative reaction to the Bush administration’s troubled nomination of Julie Myers to head the already troubled U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency:
President Bush’s nominee to head U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has drawn the ire of several ICE supervisors and agents who say she is “unqualified” because she has never held a law-enforcement management position.
The nomination of Julie L. Myers “just doesn’t pass the smell test and is another indication that this administration created the Department of Homeland Security as window dressing and does not care whether ICE is successful,” said Matthew Issman, national legislative vice president of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association (FLEOA).
“What we need is a strong, law-enforcement leader, not another inexperienced, well-connected lawyer with friends in the White House.”
The confirmation remains pending. Debbie Schlussel notes a CQ report on a meeting between Myers and GOP Sen. Susan Collins, chairwoman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee overseeing Myers’ nomination.
The longer it takes, the worse it looks.
