As temperatures reached a sweltering 93 degrees in our nation’s capital over this past weekend, so did the unhinged and at times hateful rhetoric by the thousands upon thousands of demonstrators gathered in major cities across the country. Condemning both President Trump and our Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, known as ICE.
The well organized protests designed to overshadow the illegal invasion currently taking place along our Southern border of unaccompanied minors including families willfully breaking our immigration laws, forcing ICE agents to arrest the lawbreakers, thus separating children “temporarily” while those parents are being processed and vetted, with many showing up at the border without proper documentation.
The demagoguery reached fever pitch last week with the surprise victory of a little known Bronx socialist beating out a powerful Democrat during the primary calling for the “abolishment of ICE.” Remarkably that call for the elimination of our nation’s premier immigration enforcement agency is now becoming the litmus test for established Democrats within the party.
In New York City where the call to eliminate ICE first began both Mayor Bill de Blasio and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand have joined the bandwagon, condemning the agency and calling for its end.
In a CNN interview Thursday night, Gillibrand made her feelings felt saying, “I believe that [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] has become a deportation force … and that’s why I believe you should get rid of it, start over, re-imagine it and build something that actually works,”
While leftist Mayor de Blasio echoed the same anti-police rhetoric he has for years, regarding “New York’s Finest” expounding, “We should abolish ICE.”
The fervor among far-left Democrats like former actress and governor hopeful Cynthia Nixon, referencing ICE a “terrorist organization” and Congressmen Mark Pocan announcing that he will introduce a bill to abolish the agency, is pushing more moderate Democrats to the radical far-left.
A place where the vast majority of Americans find unacceptable, with recent polls confirming exactly want most critical thinking individuals feel regarding the issue of immigration.
In that over 71% support the President’s immigration policies, designed to protect American’s against a flood of un-vetted immigrants, willfully challenging our system of governance.
Moreover, rejecting the media’s overt bias towards the President and their conflated description that the President’s immigration policies are “hard-line.”
The poll also found; 71% want jobs offered first to American citizens, 82% want stronger immigration laws and penalties, especially those committing crimes in America, 76% want more hiring of ICE agents, and 73% believe immigrants must support themselves financially.
Obviously the disconnect between mainstream America, and the apparently “new Democratic Party” will no doubt meet on election night, this November.
President Trump has already predicated doom if the unhinged left high-jacks what’s left of the Democratic Party and actually goes “full throttle in their unbridled quest to eliminate ICE.
“Well, I hope they keep thinking about it. Because they’re going to get beaten so badly,” he said. “You know ICE, these are the guys that go in and take MS-13, and they take them out, because they’re much tougher than MS-13, like by a factor of 10. And these are the ones – you get rid of ICE you’re going to have a country that you’re going to be afraid to walk out of your house.”
Least we forget, ICE was created following the worst terrorist attack on American soil, that destroyed two iconic landmarks, The World Trade Center, and stole the lives of over 3,000 innocent people, simply going to work on a bright sunlit September day.
The aftermath of that horrific day lives in the hearts of true Americans, and the agency tasked with that awesome responsibility to “NEVER AGAIN” have a repeat of 9/11…is ICE.
