Democrats Pushing to Abolish ICE

Local News

At rallies across the country, protesters are demanding lawmakers abolish the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency. 

In fact, some Democrats in congress are latching onto the idea, promising to file legislation to eliminate the agency. 

Senator John Kennedy says ICE is key to fighting human trafficking and removing violent criminals from the country. Kennedy introduced a resolution supporting the agency. 

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand said, “Ice has become a deportation force and are just rounding up people and deporting them.” 

Senator John Kennedy responded by saying “It’s called the rule of law.”

He calls ICE agents patriots and heroes. Some critics of ICE say the agency under President Trump is unfairly targeting undocumented immigrants, who’ve committed no other crime.
