Kimathi was suspended but still is an employee of Homeland Security.

“Mr. Kimathi was placed on administrative leave on August 23. ICE does not condone any type of hateful rhetoric or advocacy of violence of any kind against anyone,” U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement deputy press secretary Gillian Christensen said in an email to The Blaze.

DETROIT — In an effort to prevent terrorists from crossing the Canadian Border into the U.S., Border Patrol agents are gearing up for a new $17 million facility in Detroit, WWJ reports.

Agents gathered for a groundbreaking this week.

“We share intelligence, anything that’s got a nexus to the border and through the sharing of this intelligence we’re not working in silos so can coordinate efforts and basically maximize operations (and) security as a result of that,” Serge Cote, the officer in charge of the Windsor Royal Canadian Mounted Police, told WWJ.

The new building will offer more office space and parking and will provide new training facilities.

About 100 Border Patrol employees are expected to work there.

Feds and local police launched a search Wednesday night for a missing ICE agent who didn’t turn up for work in southern California, The Los Angeles Times reports.

But authorities expressed some optimism late Wednesday that no foul play was involved. ICE released a statement shortly before 11 p.m., saying they believed the unidentified officer “was picked up by a fellow … employee after experiencing vehicle problems overnight on a local freeway.”

However, police “will continue to treat the this as a ‘missing persons’ case until the officer is actually contacted.”

The updates were posted on a LA Times report about the suspected disappearance.

Earlier in the day, ICE wrote in a press release, “A search is underway … for an officer with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s and Removal Operations division who may be missing.”

ICE Director John Morton, who oversaw a spike in immigrant deportations, announced he’s leaving the agency, UPI reports.

Morton, who was unanimously confirmed by the Senate in May 2009, said he plans to leave the agency at the end of July.

“I am extremely proud of what we have accomplished together during that time and look with awe on the incredible progress ICE has made as an agency,” Morton said in a memo to employees Monday. “ICE has truly come of age and become an innovative, leading force in federal law enforcement.”

Under Obama’s administration, the emphasis of ICE has shifted from general deportation to targeting dangerous illegal immigrants.

NYT Editorial: ICE Agents Ran Amok in Suburban New York Raids

New York Times
Editorial

In a series of raids in suburban New York in 2006 and 2007, agents of Immigration and Customs Enforcement burst into private homes in the dead of night, without warrants, looking for undocumented immigrants, often in the wrong houses. They pounded on doors, terrorized innocent residents, ineptly drew guns on police officers who were supposed to be their partners, and found hardly any of the gang members they were hunting. It was a stunning display of aggression and incompetence.

It took six years, but the lawsuit filed after the raids finally ended last week, with a settlement approved by a federal district judge in New York. Under the agreement, ICE agents will now have to honor some elementary norms of the Fourth Amendment, which bars unreasonable searches. Its agents will be forbidden to invade private homes without “a reasonable, articulable suspicion of danger.” When they have no warrant and need consent to enter a private home, they will have to ask permission in a language the resident understands, “whenever feasible.” They must also get permission to enter yards and other private areas adjoining homes. The federal government will pay $1 million in damages and fees, including $36,000 to each of 22 plaintiffs.
