'We will never abolish ICE': Pence says to staff at ICE HQ

During Friday's speech, the vice president offered words of encouragement and support as Democrats ramp-up their attacks on the agency with calls for it to be abolished. "While some people today are calling for the abolition of this great agency, in this White House, let me be clear we are with you 100% -and as the president said last night we will always stand proudly with the fearless hero's of ICE and Border Patrol", Pence said.

Pence singled out a handful of Democrats who've called for the agency's abolition, including Sens. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass. and Sen.

Some commentators, such as Fox News host Tucker Carlson, have suggested Ocasio-Cortez's shocking win is pushing establishment Democrats further to the left on the issue, likely leading to more top members of the party calling for ICE to be abolished in the near future. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and Elizabeth Warren of MA and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who are among a large field of potential 2020 challengers to Trump. "And that's why I believe you should get rid of it, start over, reimagine it and build something that actually works".

"ICE's mere existence causes many New Yorkers to live in daily fear that they will lose their family", Nixon said in a statement afterward. I think we need to abolish ICE.


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.

Officially, ICE "enforces federal laws governing border control, customs, trade and immigration to promote homeland security and public safety". DHS determined that there was a "heightened threat against DHS employees" in response to the recent DHS actions, according to a letter sent to employees in late June.

"These spurious attacks on ICE by our political leaders must stop", Pence said of an agency that has taken on a higher profile amid the Trump administration's "zero-tolerance" immigration policies and forced separations of migrant families at the southern border.
