Over the past weekend, open borders activists held rallies around the country to protest the enforcement of our nation’s immigration laws and call for the end of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Protesters carried signs saying “abolish ICE,” Breitbart reports.
For many years, we who have fought for stronger enforcement of our immigration laws have criticized the so-called “open borders movement.” The expression was a useful shorthand phrase to describe those who favor a lax-enforcement, pro-amnesty position. It was an exaggeration to make a point. Now we find out that it wasn’t an exaggeration at all. They really do want open borders.
Without ICE enforcing our immigration laws and deporting illegal aliens, the rule of law collapses entirely. Abolishing ICE would send a loud and clear invitation to the world: come on in. You won’t be deported. We don’t care whether you have anything to contribute to the United States. Nor do we care how much risk you pose to our citizens’ safety or their job security. Nor do we mind providing costly public benefits to you, courtesy of the American taxpayer.
Bill de Blasio now joins the rest of New York Democrats demanding ICE be dismantled. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) called for the agency to be abolished in an interview with Chris Cuomo on Thursday.
“I believe that it has become a deportation force. And I think you should separate out the criminal justice from the immigration issues. “I think you should reimagine ICE under a new agency, with a very different mission, and take those two missions out. So we believe that we should protect families that need our help, and that is not what ICE is doing today. And that’s why I believe you should get rid of it, start over, reimagine it and build something that actually works,” ~ Gillibrand RWT News
The hate and division within our nation has escalated to the point that our Amendments are being stripped and National Security at our borders is under attack by the dems and libs.
Simply getting the truth out to people has taken an extreme hit simply by certain social media libs and democrats finding loopholes in congress to shut down the truth.
