Government accountability is so low it’s become hard to fathom.
Government employee’s jobs are nearly guaranteed regardless of the screwup! Here’s one example that will make your blood boil:
Between 2013 and 2014, 65,000 illegal aliens with criminal records were released into the public.
The reason? To comply with immigration laws and to free up detention space for other efforts.
The crimes ranged from the petty to rape and murder.
But the worst part was that no one from ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement) was fired!!
As Twitchy reported earlier today, testimony from a House Oversight hearing on a massive security compromise of federal computer systems led a number of people to ask just what it would take for a federal employee to be fired, or at the very least shamed into resigning. Office of Personnel Management director Katherine Archuleta was reportedly offered chances to apologize and resign but “declined to do either.”
This afternoon, House subcommittees on national security and on health care, benefits, and administrative rules met to discuss President Obama’s 2014 executive actions on immigration, which allowed illegal aliens to apply for deferred action status, which protected them from deportation and authorized them to work legally in the United States. Those aliens would then be eligible to obtain Social Security numbers and other government benefits.
Among those to testify was U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement director Sarah Saldaña, and Townhall editor Katie Pavlich also makes the case that it’s high time for some high-level government firings.
