It’s Spreading=> Top Democrat Lawmakers Demand ICE be Abolished
Democrats are for open borders.
Here’s how extreme the Democrat Party has become:
In the wake of nationwide protests against the Trump administration’s immigration policies, top Democrats are demanding U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to be abolished.
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) was the first senator to call for ICE to be abolished during an interview on CNN with Chris Cuomo Thursday night.

“I believe that it has become a deportation force. And I think you should separate out the criminal justice from the immigration issues. I think you should reimagine ICE under a new agency, with a very different mission, and take those two missions out. So we believe that we should protect families that need our help, and that is not what ICE is doing today,” Gillibrand told Cuomo. “And that’s why I believe you should get rid of it, start over, reimagine it and build something that actually works,” the Democrat lawmaker added.
New York City mayor Bill de Blasio told WNYC radio Brian Lehrer on Friday ICE should be abolished.
.@NYCMayor tells @BrianLehrer: “We should abolish ICE.” De Blasio also suggested Bernie Sanders would have won the White House had he been the Democratic nominee in 2016. De Blasio backed Clinton over Bernie.

De Blasio and Gillibrand are among other high profile Democrats demanding ICE be dismantled.
Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who won her Democratic primary race against establishment New York Rep. Joseph Crowley Tuesday night, strongly stands for abolishing the border-enforcement agency. Ocasio-Cortez claimed on Wednesday that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is running “black sites” at the border.
No justice – no peace.
We will fight, we will vote, and we will run until hate is dismantled.
Vote today and help us mobilize. AFTER VOTING, NYC #MuslimBan protests start at 6pm.

Rep. Mark Pocan (D – Wisc.) accused President Trump and “his team of white supremacist” of misusing ICE to facilitate crime at the border.
.@realDonaldTrump & his team of white nationalists, including Stephen Miller, have so misused @ICEgov that the agency can no longer accomplish its goals effectively. I’m introducing a bill to #AbolishICE & crack down on the agency’s blanket directive to target & round up people. pic.twitter.com/xhHsOHCdNH

Investigations “have been perceived as targeting undocumented aliens, instead of the transnational criminal organizations that facilitate cross border crimes impacting our communities and national security."

Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D – OR) was one of the members of congress who voted against forming ICE and the Dept. of Homeland Security in 2002 and is reportedly introducing legislation over the next few weeks which would dismantle ICE and set up a commission to look at “how to restore a more humane and service-oriented system that both protects Americans and respects immigrants.”
RT if you agree.

Nearly 600 people were arrested by the Capitol Police Thursday, including Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), at an immigration protest at the Hart Senate Building.
This time the angry lefty women traded in their pussy hats for foil, wrapping themselves in foil to imitate the blankets migrant children slept in at detention centers during the Obama years:
This is actually happening. Americans are calling for ICE to be abolished. They've been terrorizing our communities for years! It's time. Every progressive candidate must say it! Everyone who says they care about immigrants should say it. #AbolishICE! #WomenDisobey pic.twitter.com/pPg7NQ9gZ8

Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) says she is proud to have been arrested today with the other hundreds of women:
I was just arrested with 500+ women and @WomensMarch to say @RealDonaldTrump’s cruel zero-tolerance policy will not continue. Not in our country. Not in our name.
June 30 we’re putting ourselves in the street again.
