Obama warns ICE officials will pay price for disobeying amnesty order: ‘There will be consequences’

At a Miami meeting sponsored by MSNBC and Telemundo Wednesday where he addressed the concerns of illegal aliens, President Barack Obama directed a chilling warning to Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents.

If they don’t heed his executive actions on amnesty, “there will be consequences.”

“But what are the consequences?” José Diaz-Balart asked ther president, according to a White House transcript. “Because how do you ensure that ICE agents or Border Patrol won’t be deporting people like this? I mean, what are the consequences.”

“José, look, the bottom line is, is that if somebody is working for ICE and there is a policy and they don’t follow the policy, there are going to be consequences to it,” Obama said. “So I can’t speak to a specific problem.  What I can talk about is what’s true in the government, generally.”

He likened it to the military, and said that military personnel “are expected to follow” orders they’re given. However, servicemen and women are not expected to follow illegal orders.

A federal judge has issued an order temporarily restraining the implementation of the president’s executive actions on amnesty.
