New Democrat Idea For 2020 Race: Abolish ICE

You can always count on the so-called fringe of the Democratic party to tell us what they all really think

(Daily Caller) Left-wing pundits and activists are increasing pressure on Democratic politicians to embrace the fringe position of abolishing ICE.

Once a fringe idea on the far-left, abolishing the nation’s immigration enforcement agency now looks likely to become a campaign issue in the Democrats’ 2020 presidential primary.

Former Hillary Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon came out for abolishing the agency in January. “ICE operates as an unaccountable deportation force,” Fallon argued. “Dems running in 2020 should campaign on ending the agency in its current form.”

“Should ICE exist?” MSNBC host Chris Hayes asked Democratic California Sen. Kamala Harris on Thursday. Harris’s answer — “certainly” ICE should exist — sparked a backlash among some liberals.

Liberal writer Jack Mirkinson on Friday slammed Harris for her answer in an article titled, “Not Good Enough, Kamala Harris.”

Head on over for the rest of the story, but, suffice to say, all the lefties who have been yammering about wanting to keep the “good” illegals while getting rid of the bad ones are simply lying: they want to keep them all.

“ICE​ is terrorizing American communities right now,” Angel Padilla, policy director of the Indivisible Project, told The Nation. “They’re going into schools, entering hospitals, conducting massive raids, and separating children from parents every day. We are funding those activities, and we need to use all the leverage we have to stop it.”

No, they aren’t entering schools and hospitals. Yes, they are conducting raids, as the law dictates. The parents put their children in this position.

Good luck with this talking point, Dems.

BTW, ICE does a whole lot more than just enforce immigration, as you can see in the “what we do” page.

    If they want votes, they should abolish the TSA.

    PS The numbers on Hispanics turning their backs on the Demos must be a lot worse than anybody’s saying.

    Wow, when your ideas on immigration are too radical for kamala harris, you have some soul-searching to do. She thinks her job is to shield illegal immigrants from US law and authorities while letting in as many as possible.

    And you must be dumb, because every idea that kamala comes up with is, according to her, “smart” policy. Don’t go against smart. They say she’s the female Barack Obama or something.

    Abolishing ICE would be like asking Hitler to abolish the SS or the Gestapo!

    tRump’s plan is to expand ICE and their charter to cover more residents.

    • gitarcarver says:

      Yeah, we wouldn’t want to expand law enforcement agencies to stop people from breaking the law.

      The left hates the US so much that they would rather support criminals than law abiding citizens.

    • Hoss says:

      Well, we see what your feelings are in regards to law enforcement. And Godwin’s Law, you lose.

  4. Jl says:

    Please, please run on abolishing ICE, liberals. Even I didn’t think they could be that stupid…..

    Abolish ICE?
    Kate Steinle unavailable for comment.

    • Hoss says:

      Hey, if a few pretty white girls have to be collateral damage to further the SJW agenda, so be it.

    • Jeffery says:

      If the Feds had tighter control of their firearms Ms. Steinle would be alive today.

      As we drift into a Right-Wing Authoritarian regime we need to keep an eye on emerging federal paramilitary organizations such as ICE that an ignorant, unAmerican strongman such as tRump might use to suit his political purposes.

    If the feds had tighter control of illegal invaders Steinle would be alive today. “….feds had control of their firearms”. They are not the feds firearms
