Democrats have been pushing the narrative that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) are racist evil NAZI’s and need to be abolished in favor of open borders. Democrats drafted a bill to abolish ICE recently following the new Democrat Party slogan “abolish ICE”.
However, Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) called their bluff wanting to bring the bill to a vote. Republican leaders feel if Democrats want to make outrages claims then they need to put money where their mouth is. Once Democrats were notified it may go to vote they said they will vote against the bill.
Democrats response: “We know Speaker [Paul] Ryan is not serious about passing our ‘Establishing a Humane Immigration Enforcement System Act,’ so members of Congress, advocacy groups, and impacted communities will not engage in this political stunt,” Reps. Mark Pocan of Wisconsin, Pramila Jayapal of Washington and Adriano Espaillat of New York told The Hill and other news outlets. “If Speaker Ryan puts our bill on the floor, we plan to vote no and will instead use the opportunity to force an urgently needed and long-overdue conversation on the House floor.”
Paul Ryan has made his views on Abolishing ICE movement from the Left very clear.
Paul Ryan: “They have really jumped the sharks on the left,” Ryan said. “This is the agency that gets gangs out of communities, that helps prevent drugs from flowing into our schools, that rescues people from human trafficking. They want to get rid of this agency?”
“It’s the craziest position I’ve ever seen,” Ryan continued. “And they are just they are tripping over themselves to move too far to the left. They are out of the mainstream of America. And that is one the reasons why I feel very good about this fall.”
It is obvious Democrats will not actually back abolishing ICE and they are using it for political gain solely in 2018 mid-terms. If Democrats attempted passing this bill they will surly lose the House and Senate in the mid-terms and giving a larger lead to the Republican majority.
