SAVE ICE: Leading Democrats in Congress have called for United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to be abolished, which would grind immigration enforcement to a halt, with devastating consequences for public safety.
- Abolishing ICE would mean open borders because it would eliminate the agency responsible for removing people who enter or remain in our country illegally, including drug dealers; gang members; and child molesters, rapists, and other sex offenders.
- Calls to abolish ICE are an insult to these heroic law enforcement officers who make sacrifices every day to secure our borders, enforce our laws, and protect our safety and security.
- President Trump will protect ICE so these brave Americans can continue to do their job of protecting our communities.
REMOVING CRIMINALS: Abolishing ICE would allow dangerous criminal aliens—including violent and ruthless members of the MS-13 gang—to remain in American communities and inflict terrible harm on innocent American men, women, and children.
- During fiscal year (FY) 2017, ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) arrested more than 127,000 aliens with criminal convictions or charges.
- Criminal aliens arrested by ICE ERO in FY 2017 were responsible for:
- More than 76,000 dangerous drug offenses;
- More than 48,000 assault offenses;
- More than 11,000 weapon offenses;
- More than 5,000 sexual assault offenses;
- More than 2,000 kidnapping offenses; and
- More than 1,800 homicide offenses.
- ICE Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) made 4,818 gang-related arrests in FY 2017.
- Abolishing ICE would mean that countless illegal aliens who pose a threat to public safety would be allowed to roam free—killing, injuring, and threatening Americans—instead of being removed from the country.
SEIZING DEADLY DRUGS: Abolishing ICE would mean more dangerous illegal drugs flowing into our communities, causing more Americans to needlessly suffer.
- ICE plays a critical role in combatting the drug crisis facing our Nation.
- ICE HSI seized more than 980,000 pounds of narcotics in FY 2017, including thousands of pounds of the deadly drugs fueling the opioid crisis.
- ICE HSI seized 2,370 pounds of fentanyl and 6,967 pounds of heroin.
- ICE HSI logged nearly 630,000 investigative hours directed toward fentanyl.
- Abolishing ICE would leave these drugs in our communities to cause more devastation.
HELPING PREVENT TERRORISM: Abolishing ICE would mean eliminating the agency that deports aliens that pose a terrorist threat to the United States.
- ICE was created in 2003 to better protect national security and public safety after 9/11 terrorists exploited immigration rules to gain entry into the United States.
- The National Commission on Terrorist Attacks found that many of the 9/11 hijackers committed visa violations.
- ICE identifies dangerous individuals before they enter our country and locates them as they violate our immigration laws.
- Abolishing ICE would enable the hundreds of thousands of foreign nationals who illegally overstay their visa each year to remain in the United States indefinitely.
True Americans all praise ICE for their dedication and sacrifice to defend the American dream. They are so head and shoulders above the deranged democrats that talk them down. When observing the democrat clotting, all we can see is decay. What a mess they have become! How for down will they go beyond this?
socialist should be listed as a terrorist organization the democrats need to throw them out of their party
The most foolish and corrupt people are those who advocate illegal aliens get to vote; because that is how many Demoncrats in California, New York, and other sanctuary cities have stolen seats in the house and Senate. That stops this mid-term election, and many Demoncrats will lose their seats in the next election. The red wave will dominate!
If ICE was created to help secure our borders and arrest alien criminals after the 9-11 attack and the FBI was created to help enforce the prohibition of alcoholic beverages then both should be abolished. Please see how stupid it is to call for the abolishment of ICE. We have citizens being robbed, hurt, killed, blackmailed, raped daily by some of the foreign aliens who do not have plans to become productive citizens in this country or their own homeland. Their aim is to cause terror among our communities and businesses each and every day and twice on holidays.
Why are liberals calling for the reduction in our protection and enforcement in our basic rights of Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happiness as citizens of this country?? Is it because the criminal elements of these foreign aliens are the ones that the Liberal/ Democrats can count on to vote several times in the next elections for cash or other forms of compensation although these aliens are not citizens and eligible to vote?? ICE is doing a decent dirty job for the citizens while liberals/open border/communist/socialist/democrats see their additional illegal voters being deported by ICE activity. That is the main reason for the calling of the liberals to dissolve ICE. If you followers of the liberal/democrats cannot see this reasoning, then your political party needs
to be considered a terrorist organization and a threat to our National Security just like ISIS and many others.
ICE is just a recent name. The Customs Agency(?) and Border Patrol were in existence decades ago maybe centuries. there have always been a need for govts to protect the citizens or subjects. With our rights we are citizens, not subjects.
Cannot imagine a brain believing we need to abolish ICE and do nothing to stop illegals from g n my here. Why do they ant to destroy this great country?
Send Dems to Mexico if they don’t want ice. Because we the people want closed borderd
Keep ICE, Deport liberals!
ICE is part of the security envelope around and in the nation The military, fire dept, police. and now the need to protect the citizens and unborn from the democrats/RINOs since there Party First Agenda, #Never Nation first is on full display. The democrat/RINO party is actively pursuing trashing citizen safety concerns with their dedicated Party First agenda. They function, not as elected representatives of the people but as employees of the party paid with taxpayer funds. They owe their souls to the political party and have no place in DC
It’s so great to watch the left self-implode. And they will learn nothing from it. Remember, they know what best for us bc we’re too stupid to make our own decisions.
The mentally, morally, and spiritually deficient lie-beral DEMONocrats are suffering from the insanity of satanity whose only expertise is bullshitology under the cloak of self righteousness! They do not want rules/laws because they make their own.
