U.S. Rep. wants to know why the INS isn't doing its job

Earlier I discussed the town hall meeting in Houston where a BICE (new name for the INS) official assured illegal aliens that the INS was not conducting workplace raids. I.e., a BICE official told illegal aliens that he wasn't doing his job.

The meeting got some attention:

Now U.S. Rep. John Culberson, R-Houston, wants to know why not.

"I am appalled and outraged that federal law enforcement officials would hold a meeting with lawbreakers to tell them they won't enforce the law," Culberson said in an interview Thursday.

Culberson, who sits on the House Appropriations Committee, said he will do anything in his power to make immigration officials understand that "if they expect to get funded, they must enforce the immigration laws."

While not calling for an official investigation, Culberson said he will conduct his own inquiry to find out what is happening in Houston...
