Super Bowl LVIII Has Come And Gone And ICE SVU Took Credit And Did Nothing
Print Friendly and PDF

Another Super Bowl has come and gone with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Special Victims Unit (SVU) taking all the credit for doing nothing other than enforcing the National Football League’s (NFL) intellectual property, i.e., arresting illegal vendors selling knock-off NFL merchandise. Of course, there were no immigration arrests, but ICE SVU is focused like a laser on poaching arrests from locals and publicity from the United States Secret Service (USSS).

It is not commonly known, but the USSS, known as the SS among their law enforcement friends, is responsible for managing security for important national events, including the Super Bowl. However, since ICE SVU does not want to arrest any of the 20-30 million illegal aliens in the United States, they need something to occupy their time. Usually ICE SVU is content sitting in their offices doing whatever they do to occupy their time, usually taking credit for someone else’s arrests, but also playing battle rattle cosplay, which is likely the only thing they do. ICE SVU really likes playing dress-up.

But they actually made some arrests, poor slobs hawking knockoffs from Red China, but they were also taking credit for the work of others. Most of the sexy security support, like air assets on one hand and technical support like nuclear, chemical, and biological expertise was provided by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Air and Marine Operations (AMO), or other Federal agencies, but most of the uniformed security was provided by various Arizona law enforcement agencies.

But ICE SVU does nothing better than take credit for the work of others.

Buffoonish Scott Brown, ICE SVU Special Agent-in-Charge

Scott Brown, Special Agent-in-Charge of ICE SVU Arizona, says that Super Bowl Sunday was a good regular day. But for ICE SVU a good regular day means no immigration arrests. And Brown accomplished this, while at the same time preening for the camera, slick videos showing body armor, raid jackets, guns, and even CBP AMO’s helicopters.

That seems to be the pattern for ICE SVU, too much time on their hands, plenty of time to make videos, but not to arrest illegal aliens.

ICE SVU Cosplay

And dress up is what ICE SVU does best, even the girls.

As usual, most of what ICE SVU claimed they did was a lie. ICE SVU has no real capacity, with the exception of their SWAT teams, which are not going around raiding Mexican cartel drug dealers, but providing a duplication of SS and Federal Bureau of Investigations Hostage Rescue Team (FBI HRT), Arizona State Police SWAT teams, and Phoenix Police Department SWAT teams. There must have been more SWAT teams in the stadium than paying fans.

But back to the lies and misleading statements.

These included more than 600 personnel providing extensive air security resources; venue, cyber and infrastructure security assessments; chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosives detection technologies; intelligence analysis and threat assessments; intellectual property enforcement; and real-time situational awareness reporting for other law enforcement agencies.

It is neatly implied that ICE SVU has a team of experts in chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosives detection technologies. Well, no. That is a lie. Just as they lied about air security resources, which are provided by CBP, with the real expertise in nuclear, chemical, and biological detection and response provided by the Department of Defense (DOD) Joint Task Force-Civil Support (JTF-CS), other Department of Homeland Security (DHS) components, and the Department of Energy Nuclear Emergency Support Team (DOE NEST).

ICE SVU is so desperate to deflect from the dereliction of their duty to enforce the immigration laws of the United States that any lie or exaggeration will do. President Ron DeSantis will have work to do.Fortunately I have some good advice for him on how to handle ICE SVU and other recalcitrant Deep State actors.
