According to an article on washingtonpost.com:  “Wasting little time after the election before jumping ship, Julie L. Myers, head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, will leave the Bush administration on Nov. 15, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff announcement today.”

It is hard to evaluate Ms. Meyers’ performance as head of ICE.  I guess it depends on where one stands on the issue of immigration.  If maximizing the number of depotations was the goal, the agency succeeded under her leadership.  On the other hand, when reviewing the high cost associated with the removals and whether detainees’ Due Process rights were violated, the jury’s still out on whether the results could be deemed a success.
