    Arrested development at ICE - By Dimitri Vassilaros, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
    ICE also did not want Morganelli to contact the Social Security Administration to verify the Social Security numbers of suspected aliens, 'even though I received an award from Social Security for prosecuting identity fraud by illegal aliens,' Morganelli said.

    Like the dozen or so who had been working as carpenters doing the framing for a new Holiday Inn under construction. They were arrested because of a tip from the carpenters union, he said. Maybe those jobs now will be filled by Americans, unless other illegals are willing to work for less.

    ICE refused even to send an agent to assist in that arrest, Morganelli said.
