How long are the American people going to tolerate the willful defiance of U.S. laws by our current administration and government officials?

The president of the union that represents officers of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Chris Crane, testified before members of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration that ICE officers have been ordered not arrest any illegals that have been previously arrested, deported and then re-enter the US illegally again, even though that constitutes a federal felony. Furthermore, they have been instructed to not arrest any illegal that is a fugitive from court ordered deportation if they have no other prior criminal convictions.

What is the difference between this and a police officer being told not to arrest someone for committing a felony if they had no prior conviction? Or what about a police officer who was told to ignore a judge’s order to detain someone just because they had no priors? If this was the case, anyone with a clean record could commit any crime they wanted and not be arrested for it because they had a clean record to begin with. It wouldn’t take long for the crime rates to shoot through the ceiling.

Additionally, since when does any person, especially a government official, have any right to decide for themselves what laws they are going to enforce and what ones they won’t?
