A Democratic lawmaker on Monday introduced legislation to abolish U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), citing the Trump administration’s handling of the agency.
“From conducting raids at garden centers, and meatpacking plants, to breaking up families at churches and schools, ICE is tearing apart families and ripping the moral fabric of our nation,” Rep. Mark Pocan (D-Wis.) said in a statement.
“Unfortunately, President Trump and his team of white nationalists, including Stephen Miller, have so misused ICE that the agency can no longer accomplish its goals effectively,” he continued.
Pocan introduced the measure after traveling to the southern border last week.
“During my trip to the southern border, it was clear that ICE, and its actions of hunting down and tearing apart families, has wreaked havoc on far too many people,” he said.
Pocan is joined by other Democrats who are also calling for ICE to be abolished.
I would typically think that this was a bit extreme, but from what we have seen lately it might well be the appropriate response.
What do you all think?
