Biden administration nixes last-minute Trump deal giving ICE union ‘veto power’ over policy | TheHill

Seide said the agreement effectively gave the union “veto power” over many of the Biden administration’s immigration plans as it seeks to roll back Trump’s legacy.

“As part of routine process and provided for by statute, the department conducted a review of the terms of the agreement and determined that it was not negotiated in the interest of DHS and has been disapproved because it is not in accordance with applicable law,” a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) spokesperson told CBS News on Tuesday.

The agreement had surprised even former Trump administration officials, who described it as a bad deal for management.

“It was not good for the agency because management lost a lot of rights on how they run the agency,” Tom Homan, who led ICE in the early days of the Trump administration, previously told The Hill.
