First, let me start by saying I am new to this website and do not know where this topic belongs, so if it is in the wrong section, could a mod please
let me know....thanks
Anyway, in one of my law classes on Friday, we had a guest speaker from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). He had the normal presentation
consisting of a powerpoint, video, lecture, etc. However, there was one thing that caught my attention. When he was talking about arrests, he
mentioned that ICE is the only government agency that does not require a warrent for searches and arrests. My question, is how can they get away with
that. Doesnt the constitution directly state that one is protected from unwarrented searches and seizures? So what the ICE agent was saying is that
the constitution doesnt apply to us anymore? Awesome.
Also, he said that that applies to all U.S. citizens, not just illegal immigrants. So theoretically, an ICE agent could just waltz on into my house,
take my computer, and arrest me without a reason or a warrant.
Gotta love the us.
Does anyone know how this is legal or why it has not been mentioned before?
