Acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Matt Albence Announces Departure

Trump’s deportation chief is out.

Acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Matt Albence has announced his departure from the agency.

Albence’s retirement comes after 25 years spent in law enforcement.

As the director, Albence was known for his strong crackdowns on sanctuary cities.

According to Fox News:

“After more than 25 years as a federal law enforcement officer, I am announcing my retirement from federal service,” Albence said in a statement. “This was an exceptionally hard decision to make, a decision prolonged due to the uncertainty of a global pandemic and the essential role ICE continues to play in our nation’s response.”

The Washington Examiner first reported Albence’s retirement, which comes after more than 25 years in law enforcement. Before taking over as acting head, he had served as deputy director and also worked in ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO).

Under Albence, the agency had launched a crackdown on sanctuary cities, accompanied by a campaign to draw awareness to policies that allowed arrested illegal immigrants to be released back into cities rather than deported.

Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf praised Albence for leading ICE “to record-breaking criminal arrests and seizures in furtherance of ICE’s critical national security and public safety missions, and helped restore integrity to this country’s immigration system.”

Albence spent just over one year in the role of Acting Director of ICE.

Try not to blame his retirement from the post as a slam on our President. Congress has made the last four years a living hell for the “ELECTED” President of our nation. While they put up barriers they with a straight face blame those who voted for our leader to such an extent I would have slapped at least a couple had they said the same to me to my face. The cowards run and hide behind laws they passed in the interest of their well being.

The House is on a destroy Trump mission from day one and they don’t care who gets in their way they will destroy them too, and the Republican Majority Senate has sat with their thumbs up their a*s doing squat as usual, all in an effort to take down an outsider (Trump) who could possibly expose the entire Government of dirty tricks,.filth, and corruption. And they were right! THE ONLY WAY TO GET RID OF THESE CAREER COCKROACHES WHO HAVE BLED AMERICANS DRY FOR MORE THAN 30 YEARS IS TERM LIMITS!

In other words, I’m going to collect my SES pension and take that consulting job waiting for me in the private sector that is going to pay me another $150,000.00 per year.

He is just claiming his federal civil service which he earned. Don’t be jealous because you chose to work some other position
