Democrat Lawmaker Threatens ICE Officers With Prosecution ‘You Are Not Safe’
Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ)
Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) fired a warning shot to ICE officers early on Thursday warning “you will not be safe” from prosecution post-Trump.
Democrats are waging a war on ICE officers and calling for borders to be completely abolished.
The unhinged Democrat (redundant, we know) actually accused ICE officers of deporting “Americans.”
The hysteria began with a story out of the Washington Post wherein they reported the government is denying passports to Hispanics who have U.S. citizenship but are suspected of having fake birth certificates. This same policy was in place during the Bush and Obama years and have actually declined under Trump, but when have facts ever mattered to the left?
Ruben Gallego tweeted: “If you are a US government official and you are deporting Americans be warned. When the worm turns you will not be safe because you were just following orders. You do not have to take part in illegal acts ordered by this President’s administration.”

Chris Crane, the president of the National ICE Council accused Gallego of inciting violence against ICE officers.
In a statement provided to FOX News, Crane said:
“It should be frightening to every American that a sitting member of Congress would threaten the safety of any person and their family, and incite the public to take acts of violence against them, let alone the lives of those whose job it is to protect us and keep us safe.”
Trump supporters responded to Congressman Gallego’s threats.
Excuse me!!! We have immigration laws and you need to tell illegals they need to respect them! If we ILLEGALLY crossed the border into Mexico, we would be thrown in jail immediately!

Either you are stupid or what? If they get deported, that means they are not an American! If they get their American Citizenship by fraudulent means, that means they are not an American! That is why they are getting deported because they are not Americans!

Methinks you need a remedial course in “illegal immigrant.” Someone who violates our laws and sovereignty and enters our nation illegally will and should be deported.
Can you name ONE American citizen who has been illegally deported? I’ll wait (a long time) for your answer.
