John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Congress Is ‘Setting Us Up For Failure’: Acting ICE Director On Deportation Actions

Recommended Posts


By Shelby Talcott -



Acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Matthew Albence told reporters Tuesday that Congress is setting them up for failure as they try to enforce targeted enforcement actions.

Albence spoke during a teleconference call with reporters to discuss the recent ICE operations that are targeting 2,000 illegal immigrants with deportation orders. ICE arrested 35 individuals in what Albence said is “just the beginning of the operation.”

Eighteen of the arrests were family members who had court-ordered removal orders and ICE targeted for deportation. Seventeen were arrests made collaterally, Albence told reporters Tuesday. He noted the situation is a “public safety crisis” and said that issues with Congress have made the situation more difficult.

“There’s not just a humanitarian crisis,” Albence said. “There’s a public safety crisis — it’s a border security crisis. … Congress is kind of setting us up for failure on some of these issues.”

The “individuals could be anywhere in the country” and ICE has been pushing Congress regarding the “inability to detain” family units, he said.

“This is why we have said over and over and over again that something needs to be done,” Albence told reporters. “The situation right now where we have these families who can come in — we have no way of validating any of their information that they’re providing. We have no way of detaining them.”

“They’re simply released out into the community. The difficulties that we have trying to track them down especially if they’re illegitimate … the difficulty in finding them is there,” Albence continued.

Albence also said the higher media visibility, weather issues such as Hurricane Barry in Louisiana and situations where agents stopped an operation due to the potential of being surveilled are reasons for the low number of arrests so far this year.

Albence also hit back at reports that referred to the operation as “raids.”

“Calling these ‘raids’ does a disservice to everybody that’s involved in this process,” Albence said Tuesday. “At no point were we conducting raids. We were conducting targeted enforcement actions against known individuals who were previously apprehended by the border patrol after entering the country illegally.”

“Taking a targeted enforcement action against a specific individual who is in violation of the law … is not a raid,” he said.

A separate operation was mentioned, dubbed “Operation Cross Check,” which resulted in 899 people who had final orders of removal being arrested between May 13 and July 11, according to Albence. 605 of those arrested had been convicted of crimes and 93 others had pending criminal charges, NBC News reported.

The number of arrests that will ultimately result from these targeted enforcement actions are unknown and the end date for the raids was not given.
