Cuomo Slams ICE's 'Un-American' Tactics, Issues 'Cease-and-Desist' Letter

As Governor Andrew Cuomo issues a cease and desist letter to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, a local sheriff plans to continue with a federal program to work with ICE.

"We believe ICE is violating the law and endangering public safety", said Cuomo.

ICE has said that it did have a warrant for the raid last week. "If you fail to do so, I will explore and pursue all available legal recourse, taking any such action that is necessary to protect the rights and safety of all New Yorkers". "I'll also be executing an executive order that says ICE can not enter a state facility or state building without a valid judicial warrant", Cuomo said.

The governor's actions were in response to immigration raids in NY, including the arrest of a worker at a farm in Oneida County.

Cuomo, a Democrat, sent a cease and desist letter to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency on Wednesday in response to conduct that he deemed "un-American".

An ICE Homeland Security Investigations special agent, who was working as part of the U.S. Marshals Service Great Lakes Regional fugitive task force, found and arrested an individual Tuesday wanted for failing to register as a sex offender, Shawn Neudauer, and ICE spokesman, said in a statement Wednesday. Collins was then placed in handcuffs and threatened with arrest. Collins, who said Aguilar has proper documentation to work in the USA, said the officers grabbed his phone and threw it - destroying it - when he used it to videotape the arrest.

ICE Deputy Director Thomas Homan called Cuomo's remarks "an insult to ICE's sworn law enforcement officers who conduct their lawful mission professionally and with integrity". These fearless men and woman leave the safety of their homes every day to protect this great nation and our communities.

Homan added, "ICE can not and will not cease and desist from fulfilling our agency's congressionally mandated mission of enforcing federal law".

According to an affidavit provided by ICE, the officers were visiting the farm in an attempt to locate a second individual when they encountered the farm worker, Marcial de Leon Aguilar.

We're told a 53-year-old Mexican man, who was deported back in 1986, has a violent criminal history that includes convictions for aggravated assault of a police officer, illegally possessing a firearm, making terroristic threats, and multiple DUI convictions.

Just one week ago, ICE agents arrested over 220 illegal aliens, including more than 180 convicted criminals in a multi-day effort across the state. The Governor supports these policies at the expense of the safety of the very same communities he took an oath to protect. "New York is the antithesis of what this president believes about immigration".
