Pence: 'Spurious Attacks On ICE By Our Political Leaders Must Stop'

ICE names new acting director amid immigration turmoil

Pence singled out a handful of Democrats who've called for the agency's abolition, including Sens.

Vice President Mike Pence reiterated that the administration stands with ICE as he delivered remarks at the agency's headquarters.

Early on in the video, Lynette "Diamond" Hardaway blasted the "Dummy-crats" for "fighting in the streets hard to abolish ICE, but they did not fight to end slavery, to abolish slavery".

Citing calls for ICE to be abolished from Sen.

Gillibrand, Warren and de Blasio are potential 2020 challengers to Trump.

The dispute over the federal agency has emerged as a political fault line after the Trump administration began separating migrant children from their parents after they crossed the U.S. -Mexico border, leading to nationwide protests last weekend.

The bloggers' observation follows several prominent pro-abortion Democrats, and even the nation's leading pro-abortion lobbying groups, denouncing the Trump administration over the scandal using language strikingly similar to what pro-lifers say about abortion.

A good way of thinking about this: If James had chosen to stay with the Cleveland Cavaliers , it would be a relatively safe call. James has played 11 total seasons with the Cavs, pushing them to five Finals - counting the franchise's first trip in 2007.

In addition to Warren, Gillibrand, and de Blasio, several Democratic members of the House have also called for ICE to be abolished. "ICE's mere existence causes many New Yorkers to live in daily fear that they will lose their family".

On an average day, ICE removes 645 undocumented immigrants from the country, blocks over 3,000 malware attacks, seizes $1.4 million in illegal currency and assets, and confiscates almost 3,000 lbs. of illegal drugs. I think we need to abolish ICE.

Pence claimed that opposition to ICE was no longer coming just from "the radical left" but had now "moved to the center of the Democratic party itself".

Interested in Donald Trump?

Immigration enforcement is the biggest area of responsibility for ICE.

But critics argue ICE is a draconian entity and point to the fact it's still quite a young agency (it was established in 2003 after the September 11 terror attacks) in contending its elimination wouldn't change things dramatically. Immigration populations in the U.S. have grown in the past several decades, while the national rate of violent crime has declined significantly since 1980, for example.
