ICE Beefing Up to Enforce the Law:  As it is with virtually every country in the civilized world, it is a crime to enter the United States without government authorization.  An American caught sneaking into Mexico will typically be thrown in jail and fined. Paul Bedford of the Washington Examiner reports that the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency is hiring an additional 10,000 agents to resume enforcing U.S. immigration law.  In an interview, the acting director of ICE, 30-year veteran Thomas Hormon, said that since the handcuffs have been taken off of law enforcement, "illegal border crossings have crashed by almost 70 percent."  The drop in illegal border crossings is allowing ICE to focus more resources on illegal immigrants in jails, working jobs, or on the run.  "ICE is open for business.  We're going to enforce the laws on the books without apology, we'll continue to prioritize what we do.  But it's not OK to violate the laws of this country anymore, you're going to be held accountable," he said.
