Michael Moore... you are an idiot
Today, the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association (FLEOA) announced its opposition to remarks made by President Obama regarding the role and safety of ICE Special Agents assigned to Mexico. After his meeting with Mexico President Calderon on Thursday, President Obama stated, "There are laws in place in Mexico that say our agents should not be armed," and "We do not carry out law enforcement activities inside of Mexico." President Obama also stated that the role of ICE Agents was an "advisory" one.
FLEOA vehemently disagrees with both comments. In response to these remarks, FLEOA National President Jon Adler stated, "With all due respect, Mr. President, you have been tragically misinformed on both points." Contrary to what President Obama asserted, all law enforcement officers assigned to Mexico do perform "law enforcement activities." This may include conducting field interviews, responding to crime scenes, overseeing training, and participating in raids. The fact that they don't actually handcuff suspects doesn't diminish their role or the risks they face.
