It’s like they’re collecting more lunatics as they weave through the dance of American politics.
As the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency has had incredible success at rounding up illegal gang members, drug rings and human trafficking circles under the Trump Administration, they have been taking their lumps when it comes to border security issues specifically related to minors crossing with or without parents accompanying them. That being the case, Democrats have decided ICE needs to go.
Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts have expressed desires to dismantle ICE. Cynthia Nixon, who is challenging New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo in the September primary, has also said ICE, which she called a “terrorist organization,” should be dissolved.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, too, have said it’s time to end the “broken” ICE.
The new kid on the block for the Democrats is running for Attorney General in New York. Her name is Zephyr Teachout, and, well…
Zephyr Teachout, who is running as a Democrat, said ICE has “become a tool of fear and illegality” in a video for Now This News where the Fordham University law professor stressed her support for abolishing the agency.
“As attorney general, I will continue to speak out against ICE. I will prosecute ICE for their criminal acts,” Teachout said. “We have stories of consistent abuse within ICE.”…
“ICE has to be abolished. And I say that as somebody who is running for one of the top law enforcement jobs in the country,” Teachout said in the video. “I think it’s critical that law enforcement speak out and say this is a tool of cruelty, unconstitutional behavior, illegality.”
Fordham, huh. The nominally Catholic Jesuits who are flirting with apostacy strike again. Never mind all the children freed from child traffickers, and the drugs being stopped from flowing over the border, and the internet safety, and all the other things ICE does. For whatever reason, they are raining on the Democrats’ parade. Therefore, they have to go.
As these politicians say they represent the people of the USA. Yeah, right.
