Before the quag-Miers, (hat tip: Confederate Yankee for the term) there was the other quag-Myers. That is: Julie Myers, a Bush lawyer with virtually no immigration and customs enforcement experience and minimal managerial experience who has been nominated to head the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. She just happens to be niece of recently retired chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Richard Myers/wife of DHS Secretary Michael Chertoff’s chief of staff/former employee of Chertoff and outgoing ICE head Michael Garcia.
Here’s the latest Capitol Hill press release:
WASHINGTON, DC– Senator Susan Collins, Chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, announced that the Committee is scheduled to consider the nomination of Julie Myers to be Assistance Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security on Friday, October 7, 10 AM in SD 342.
My sources tell me that despite vocal opposition to the nomination from rank-and-file ICE agents, 9/11 family members, and many staunch conservative supporters of immigration enforcement, it looks like Myers’ nomination will go through.
Unless, that is, Republican senators grow spines and Democrat senators grow brains.
Oh, never mind.
Debbie Schlussel has the latest ICE-capade.
