These have not been fun days for John Morton, who heads up U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The union representing ICE agents just issued a vote of “no confidence” for him.  And on Tuesday, two key sheriffs along the Arizona-Mexico border sharply criticized him.

The sheriffs, according to the Washington Times, called Morton’s planned visit to Arizona on Wednesday a “political stunt” and claimed it was the Obama administration’s attempt to “cover up its inaction in protecting our borders,” the Washington Times reported.

“The administration blew past their promised Aug. 1 deadline to send 524 National Guard troops to Arizona, and now they are trying to appear concerned by sending the ICE director, who recently received a vote of ‘no confidence’ by ICE’s union,” Arizona Sheriffs Paul Babeu of Pinal County and Larry Dever of Cochise County said in a statement, the Washington Times reported.

The paper said ICE did not respond for comment.
