Democrats Announce They Will Abolish ICE If They Win 2020 Election

 Senior Democrats have announced plans to completely abolish ICE if a Democratic candidate wins the presidential election in 2020.  According to sources within the DNC, the abolition of the nation’s immigration enforcement agency looks likely to become a primary campaign issue in the Democrats’ 2020 presidential primary.

Dailycaller.com reports: 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.”

“Any serious defender of undocumented people in this country would look at ICE and know that it is a cancer that needs to be excised from the U.S. Pretending that the most diseased levers of state power can be molded into something better is a useless fantasy. ICE must be abolished. Anything less is not good enough,” Mirkinson wrote on Splinter, a left-wing website.

“Kamala Harris is very likely running for president in 2020. It should be a political problem for her that she is not willing to take her criticisms of ICE to their logical conclusion and call for its abolition. She should be asked, over and over again, why exactly she is willing to uphold the legitimacy of such a racist, corrupt, and thuggish organization,” Markinson concluded.

“Anyone else who decides to run—Bernie Sanders, Kirsten Gillibrand, Elizabeth Warren, Eric Garcetti, you name it—should be asked the same question.”

Left-wing publication The Nation on Friday pushed out a similar piece, entitled “It’s Time to Abolish ICE.”

“The idea of defunding ICE has gained traction among immigrant-rights groups horrified by the speed at which, under President Donald Trump, the agency has ramped up an already brutal deportation process,” The Nation’s Sean McElwee claimed.

Major donor-funded groups on the Left, including Indivisible Project, the Center for Popular Democracy and Brand New Congress, now support abolishing the ICE, McElwee noted.

“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.”

“This is a growing position on the left, and I imagine 2020 Democratic presidential aspirants will have to grapple with it,” Hayes, the MSNBC host, wrote on Twitter. He linked to McElwee’s article.

Acting ICE Director Tom Homan said Thursday that Democrats are being misleading about the illegal immigrants that his agency is deporting.

“Nine out of every 10 aliens we arrested [in the last fiscal year] did have a criminal history,” Homan told Fox News.

“They don’t want to know the facts. They want to keep playing this political game and put smoke and mirrors up about what ICE is actually doing.”

ALERT ALERT

‘Watch: Mark Levin - McCabe, Clapper And Brennan Should Be Dragged Before A Federal Grand Jury Because They Were Involved In A Coup Effort

Author, radio and TV host Mark Levin joined FOX and Friends Weekend this Sunday morning to discuss the Mueller investigation and the final report that is expected out on Sunday.

Mark Levin weighed in on Mueller and FBI and the constand leaks to the liberal media over the past two years.

Levin then goes off on “Mediagate” the constant drumbeat of lies and propaganda pushed by the liberal media on the American people for the past two years on Russia and the Trump-collusion nonsense.

Mark Levin: We have an iron triangle here. The Hillary Campaign that funded the dossier, the Obama administration, the Department of Justice that other intelligence agencies, and the media. The media that is supposed to watch the powerful. The media that is supposed to watch the government, threw in with this government, in order to take out Donald Trump… What are the Democrats doing? The Democrats are not trying to interfere with the criminal justice system… They’re threatening the Attorney General with subpoenas. They’re threatening the Special Counsel with subpoenas. They’re demanding access to all this secret information, all the underlying information. They want the Attorney General to violate his oath. To violate the regulations to violate the 20 year law.

Ed Henry: What should happen to McCabe, Clapper and Brennan?

Mark Levin: First of all these men are very un-American. What they’ve said is outrageous. They should know better. They have the former head of national intelligence under Obama, the former head of the CIA under Obama, a top FBI official under Obama. These three men should be dragged in front of a federal grand jury. They should testify about everything they did and everything they knew. Because they, especially McCabe were involved in a coup effort. They did not indict anyone for collusion because there is no such crime as collusion and if there was nobody did it.
