Chris Crane is a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent who heads the ICE union. He testified along with Mr. Vargas, saying that’s led to situations where agents find themselves being disciplined for trying to make arrests, while illegal immigrants go free.

“ICE recently proposed a three-day suspension for an ICE agent who arrested an illegal alien with multiple convictions for driving without a license and who was attempting to operate a vehicle in the agent’s presence,” Mr. Crane said. “While seeking disciplinary action against the agent, ICE simply released the alien without charge, putting yet another unlicensed driver behind the wheel.”

Earlier this week, he sent a letter to President Obama asking to be included in the meetings the White House is hosting with groups pushing for legalization.
