The October, 2010 American Spectator has an article by James Antle, The Borderline Spectator—No Confidence (not online yet)

I've seen the print edition, though, and I'll give you the first couple of paragraphs:

The Obama Administration has finally met a labor union it doesn’t like, and the feeling is mutual. In June, a union representing 7,600 employees in the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)–affiliated with both the American Federation of Government Employees and the AFL-CIO–-issued a unanimous vote of ”no confidence” [PDF]against the political appointees the White house chose to and ”campaigning for programs and policies related to amnesty.”

The union leaders further charged the Obama administration with the ”creation of a special detention system for foreign nationals that exceeds the care and services provided to most United States citizens similarly incarcerated.”

See Agents' union disavows leaders of ICE, By Jerry Seper,The Washington Times, Monday, August 9, 2010, for more on the story, also here and here.

The ICE Union doesn't get to decide what the immigration law is—but neither, under the Constitution, does Barack Obama. The union members obviously feel that Obama's stealth amnesty is a form of corruption.
