Political correctness meets "Little House", Justice Kennedy, ICE and others....
The Democrats’ latest talking point is about abolishing ICE. In fact, some Democrats are introducing legislationto that effect:
A Democratic congressman introduced legislation to abolish U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), calling the agency “heartless.”
“ICE is tearing apart families and ripping at 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.”“The heartless actions of this abused agency do not represent the values of our nation and the U.S. must develop a more humane immigration system, one that treats every person with dignity and respect.”
Add to this that the idea has now became an issue in New York, where Cynthia Nixon is challenging Governor Andrew Cuomo and an outsider upset Rep. Joseph Crowley. Nixon calls ICE “a terrorist organization“.
So let’s do it the right way. Speaker Paul Ryan and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should call for a vote. Force every Democrat to vote up or down on this issue.
My guess is that a vote to abolish ICE will go down and not get many votes, specially from those red-state Democrats seeking reelection in Montana, North Dakota, Missouri, Indiana, and West Virginia. It won’t play well with centrist Democrats trying to win House seats this fall.
It won’t play well either with the agents handling a horrible situation on the border, nor with honest Americans who can distinguish between a terrorist organization and ICE.
Your Trump Derangement Syndrome episode for the day in one headline: "Reuters editor apologizes, could be disciplined after blaming Capital Gazette shooting on Trump."
How reckless can this man be?
Just curious, did he blame Senator Sanders when one of his supporters went out looking for GOP congressman to shoot?
The Annapolis shooting was a horrible thing and let's wait for more details, or information about the shooter's intentions, before we politicize it.
Finally, how can Reuters keep such a biased reporter on the political beat? Who can believe any story written by this man after this tasteless display of bias?
