Obama’s Department of Homeland Security is paying Patricia M. Vroom, Arizona’s top ICE attorney, $400,000 to settle her lawsuit, though they admitted no wrong doing, of course.
The Department has agreed to pay attorney Vroom $400,000 taxpayer dollars to end her lawsuit. The Department has also agreed to upgrade her annual performance rating to “achieved excellence”. As part of the settlement Vroom will retire on October 1 after 30 years working for the federal government. The Department did not admit to any wrongdoing.
When the Obama administration initiated its unilateral policy of “prosecutorial discretion”, allowing illegal immigrants to remain in the U.S. as long they have not yet been convicted of a serious felony crime, they found attorney Vroom too slow in authorizing the release of illegal aliens who had committed crimes in the U.S. but did not yet meet the administration’s high threshold for seeking deportation of such undocumented aliens.
Vroom is sworn to uphold the Constitution, to “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed”. Federal law states that anyone who enters the United States illegally “inadmissible and cannot be legally admitted” and “inadmissible aliens are subject to removal”. The Administration’s policy on illegal immigrants flies in the face of the federal law of the land which Vroom is sworn to uphold.
