Cardin Dodges on Whether U.S. Should Abolish ICE

03 July 2018

Among the people campaigning to end ICE are New York Sen.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) became the first sitting senator to say the USA should "get rid of" ICE: "start over".

Protesters hold signs during a rally outside of the San Francisco office of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE) on June 20, 2017 in San Francisco, California. Homan also said the protesters "need to educate themselves" about ICE's activities and that they are seeking "better rules for illegal alien families than we have for USA citizen families".

"ICE's time has come and gone", DeBlasio told WNYC's Brian Lehrer in an interview Friday morning.

The "Abolish ICE" movement is certainly picking up steam. ICE is under scrutiny as President Trump's "zero-tolerance" policies at the southern border have led to family separations, ultimately sparking nationwide protests Saturday.

Homan also gave President Donald Trump accolades for being tougher on immigration and more diligent to protect US citizens than half a dozen presidents he has served under.

"The government will not separate families but detain families together during the pendency of immigration proceedings when they are apprehended at or between ports of entry", the Justice Department said in a filing with Judge Dolly M. Gee, who for the past few years has been the key force controlling family detention.

Homan also blasted Gillibrand a day earlier, when she made her statement calling for an end to ICE.

Many Republicans have been urging Democrats to be completely honest and to run on an "open borders" platform for years.

On CNN, Sen. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill., said on Sunday: "I think there's a lot of other things we can do before we get to that point, first of which, which is you have got someone in the White House who has these policies which are horrendous, which he still hasn't fixed".

"You know ICE, these are the guys that go in and take MS-13, and they take them out", Trump added.

But the truth is that abolishing ICE isn't that radical. "That's where I want to have America change its policies and those that are called upon to implement it, they'll carry out a fair policy, not President Trump's policies".

He also tweeted that the "brave men and women of ICE. are doing a fantastic job of keeping us safe by eradicating the worst criminal elements". "We need it gone", said Bortolleto. "You are going to have a country that's crime-ridden".

"Every country needs reasonable law enforcement on their borders".
