ICE boondoggle features Tommy Lasorda

Filed under: DHS News — by Christian Beckner on July 12, 2006

Debbie Schlussel posts today on an upcoming employee conference held by ICE’s office of Detention and Removal Operations (DRO), where they are paying former Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda an amount between $30k and $50k plus expenses to speak to 60 people – all on the taxpayer’s dime. Schlussel’s post documents other examples of wasteful spending at this conference. This is a disgusting waste of money, especially for an agency that has had numerous financial troubles over the last four years and today has so many other urgent funding needs.

Update (7/18): A follow-up post.
