Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., is demanding answers after a report surfaced that a veteran U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agent is facing punishment for refusing to release an illegal immigrant he'd arrested on multiple driving violations because his supervisors said that under the Obama administration's immigration enforcement policy, the suspect was not a 'priority target.'
