Retired Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agent discuss corruption, government waste and more.

Tainted I.C.E.

This biography is about Federal Agent Derrick Taylor and his 25 year career with the United States Department of Homeland Security. Agent Taylor became a top Federal Agent for ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement). He worked as a Fugitive Apprehension Officer, tracking down and arresting hundreds of hardcore violent criminals. He managed a Prosecution Unit that convicted over 1000 criminal ali...ens. He was awarded The Medal of Valor from the Department of Homeland Security, the Secretary Award for Excellence, and the City of Los Angeles Medal of Honor.  He was interviewed by Gary Tuchman for a "Fugitive Case" story on CNN's Anderson Cooper 360 and featured on many Los Angeles news stations and newspapers.  In 1997 while serving a Federal Warrant of Deportation, Agent Taylor was shot five times by a gang member and lived to tell about it. But throughout his career he also witnessed countless cases of corruption and nepotism within the Departmentt of Homeland Security.  Could anything be done to change the culture and expose the unfairness?  Agent Taylor decided his answer was yes. This book chronicles Agent Taylor's varied and intriguing career and personal life, but also culminates in the highly-charged trial and its surprising outcome.
