The media has pushed to misinform Americans as to what exactly ICE agents do. While the left pushes to abolish ICE, the brave agents fight to protect and serve.
According to Fox Business, the latest sketch on firebrand comedian Michelle Wolf’s Netflix show — in which she mocked the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, comparing it to the Islamic State — is “repulsive,” according to the former acting director of the law enforcement agency.
“It’s the most repulsive thing I’ve seen in my 34 years,” Thomas Homan said during an interview with FOX Business’ Neil Cavuto on Saturday. Homan currently serves as the executive associate director of the ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations.
“There were several thousand children from drug traffickers. We have we have arrested I mean from child predators. We’ve arrested over 2000 child predators that were trafficking children for sexual exploitation and pornography. What Ice officers have done in this past year they have arrested over a hundred thousand criminals walking the streets,” Homan said angrily.
Though a growing cohort of Democrats may want to abolish ICE, that doesn’t mean they’re on the same page about something equally important: what, if anything, would replace it. Supportive politicians like Gillibrand argue that federal immigration enforcement needs to be restructured, not eliminated: “You should get rid of it, start over, reimagine it and build something that actually works,” she said.
Two Democratic members of the U.S. House, Rep. Mark Pocan of Wisconsin and Rep. Pramila Jayapal of Washington, have introduced legislation to abolish ICE and create a special commission that would “implement a humane immigration enforcement system that upholds the dignity of all individuals while transferring necessary functions to other agencies.”
“I think what many people want to do is return to an integrated agency that combines service with enforcement,” UCLA’s Motomura says. “To understand that slogan or that rallying cry as a call to abolish borders, or to abolish enforcement, misstates what it’s about. I think it’s a rallying cry against a certain attitude toward enforcement, a rallying cry against a certain attitude toward immigrants.”
