ICE union revolts against Obama sanctuary city policies
Recently the Obama Administration hired former Houston police chief Harold Hurtt to coordinate state and local activities for U.S. ICE. As The Heritage Foundation pointed out at the time, Hurtt seemed like an odd choice to head up an important position with ICE.
