A Massachusetts man was arrested in New York on Thursday after trying to hire a hit man on Twitter to kill ICE agents for $500 and sharing his desire to slit the throat of Sen. John McCain, federal officials said.
Brandon Ziobrowski also allegedly made violent threats against Sen. John McCain.Brandon Ziobrowski, 33, of Cambridge, Massachusetts, was charged with one count of use of interstate and foreign commerce to transmit a threat to injure another person, the Department of Justice announced Thursday. He was arrested in New York and will appear in court in Boston at a later date, the indictment said.
“Guns should only be legal for shooting the police like the second amendment intended,” a tweet from February 24 read.
In March 2018, Ziobrowski allegedly responded to a tweet from the ICE Field Office: “Thank you ICE for putting your lives on the line and hopefully dying I guess so there’s less of you?”
By July 5, Homeland Security agents found Ziobrowski’s alleged murder-for-hire solicitation tweet and alerted law enforcement agencies, CBS Boston reports.

As DACA and ICE face the violent left and their hatred of National Security, we can only hope that we will see more arrests and just maybe, a few deportations.
