Politico Poll: Democrats Went Too Far On ICE

By Steven Shepard
Politico
July 11, 2018

A new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll shows that most voters oppose eliminating Immigration and Customs Enforcement — the homeland security agency some liberal Democrats have called for abolishing. Only 1 in 4 voters in the poll, 25 percent, believe the federal government should get rid of ICE. The majority, 54 percent, think the government should keep ICE.

A handful of liberal figures — including some potential 2020 presidential candidates, like Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) — have also called for eliminating or replacing ICE, as have other Democratic primary challengers, like Cynthia Nixon, who is running against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Asked whether they would be more or less likely to vote for a congressional candidate if they supported getting rid of ICE, 40 percent say it would make them less likely.

If they had their way the democommie party would abolish everything that has to do with law and order. Thank God that Hildabitch lost her ass thanks to Obama being such a disaster.

Obama certainly didn’t help but the Hildabitch lost because of who she is and what she represents.
Just the name CLINTON should send terrifying shivers down every American citizen’s back.

Instead of eliminating ICE, we need to reinforce the borders and supply them with what they need to do the job they way they’re being paid to “UPHOLD” the laws under the U.S.Constitution and other laws on the books.

@Tony Rowell – That kind of ignorant statement is precisely the kind of statement that the Left uses against those who support SELF DEFENSE through the use of firearms, as provided for in the Constitution. You may not be aware of this, but the Constitution does NOT give anyone the right to murder because they feel like it, or have come up with an excuse in their own minds to do so, as you seem to have. The kind of thinking that produced this kind of glib statement is ignorant, mentally unbalanced, and a reason for people to be afraid of those who promote gun violence at the drop of a hat, like yourself. While many who visit this article will no doubt support the 2nd amendment, the vast majority will oppose anyone making such a reprehensible statement as this. No one who believes in the right to bear arms advocates the kind of action you have promoted with this ignorant statement, which obviously was not said in any kind of joking manner. Hopefully, someone will come and take your guns away, and leave the rest of us who use our firearms for self defense the hell alone, and in doing so make the world a safer place.

Apparently many Democrats have lost all their common sense, if they ever had any. Some very strange attitudes are surfacing these days…. there seems to be some sort of mass hysteria going on. We need BETTER immigration policies, and that is the job of Congress, but eliminating ICE is certainly NOT the way to go. People need to wake up and use their brains, not succumb to all the twisted propaganda being put out by the likes of CNN and all the other so-called “Mainstream Media,” who seem to be interested only in finding out just how far they can go no matter who they hurt in the process, including this country, itself. Shame! —

Boy…did you hit the nail! Shameful yes regarding all who spew these absurdities. Gay marriage which is an absurdity too…was the turning point. This country has spiraled since that key point in our time. I often ask people what the hell did you THINK was gunna happen when you voted for that? But moreover…this is a very scary time. That celebrities who are uneducated spout off on social media like America should care what they think….and Millenials…now this is an area where we all need to take the bull by the horns and correct these youngsters way of thinking. Because they have big numbers. They are wrong minded and social media is ruining their minds. Literrally.
And just as important but never brought into the open is George Soros (and his ilk) and the many companies he controls, each with social media blanketing the minds of the naive.
And lastly, folks there are sinister things at play here. Has been since 9/11. The corrupt and greedy who serve only to enrich and protect themselves and their plans for our future. Again not brought out into the open…and that is because ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, NBC and now their underling media firms…are OWNED by these sinister evil planners.

To Wayne and all who care about America. We are in real trouble . Sometimes I wonder if it can be fixed. It’s both sides. I gave money to unseat John Mc Cain. Think about it. Why do we still have the anchor baby situation. Who in their right mind thinks this is not a problem. They are playing us like a fine violin.
Sometimes I think our leaders are “The Problem”, mostly all of them. We, the back bone of our country are “Not in Charge”. Some folks just think they are because they vote. The swamp is alive and kicking.

Peace

The democrat party has gone off the deep end. When Obama was allowed to get into the WH the democommies thought they could finally come out as the full blown socialists they have been for many decades. They were so sure Obutthead would turn America into a socialists hell hole they jumped the gun and exposed what they are all about. Now the real job is keeping them from ever getting the WH again. In fact as subversives they should be driven out of America because socialism and capitalism will never be able to co-exist. They will use whatever tactic they can including blatant violence so we must be prepared to fight back in the same way. Call it a civil war if you want but anti-Americans must be removed from society.

As far as I can see, if you want to get rid of something, it should be what was put into effect after the Bush administration brought the country 9/11 and because of that installed the “Patriot Act” and “Homeland Security” and a great wave of corruption into all government agencies!!! That what’s needed to be cleaned up and the people responsible should be in prison!!!! We’re talking ‘Papa Bush’ all the way through to Obama, and almost all the people who worked hard to take down America!!! With a very few exceptions, this wave of slime has been rolling along since Dwight David “Ike” Eisenhower !!!

What is happening is called World Evolution and it has been going on since the beginning and will go on, it is called advancement by some. I do suppose this slime you are speaking of has something to do with Homosexuals being given wrights.
The facts prove there is less corruption in Government Agencies than there was in the past, mainly because the people are demanding something different.

No one ever polls my family. President Trump is doing a great job, protecting our borders, fixing our economy, bolstering our law enforcement and military, caring for our vets, rebuilding our interior, getting rid of unbelievably bad laws, getting rid of unjust tariffs, the list goes on and on. He is the best president these united states have ever had! As I said, no one ever polls my family.

I have been polled. I am proud to back our president. I wasn’t behind him in the beginning. I voted for him when he became the republican running, of course. I wanted Huckabee or Carson. But, Trump is doing amazing and doesn’t kiss up to anyone. That is one thing that I always did like about him. He is not easily intimidated or swayed. We needed that in our leader. I think that he was elected by the prayers of the people.

First and foremost, one must understand what the “progressive party'” really wants to accomplish…utter destruction of our current way of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness….and reorganize our way of thinking beginning at kindergarten age,,,takes time and patience, but they have it!!! And all the folks they have pretended to support…poor, down trodden, etc, will be their first destroyed once they have reached success…yikes!!!!

No, we will NOT get rid of ICE. We need to stop the drug and sex traffickers coming in from our southern border. Also with this invasion of our country, we will probably increase their size and duties.
We have no idea who is entering our country, terrorists, people carrying deadly diseases , mentally ill, psychopaths,. We have no idea.
Separating parents and children was drastic however we also found kids that didn’t belong with the adults.
Also, the parents might actually think twice before invading our country if they cared about their kids.
This is not a few illegals. This is an unhungry invasion to live off of American workers.
We should close our borders until the wall is built or until all the loopholes have been corrected. We are back to anklet bracelets they can cut off.
The Dems want every illegal to invade our country. It cost millions of dollars already of OUR money . We can’t afford much more.
We have to get serious and stop the illegals. We deserve legal immigrants that care about America and just not using us as a piggyback to pay for everything.
Lots of people crossing borders are jailed for years, these illegals , really are criminals, they just bring kids along to make it easier to enter, playing on the emotions.
We did nothing wrong separating the kids, it was the parents choice to enter illegally. They just figured that we would give in and we did.

Check out the Walk Away campaign. It is made up of thousands of people who are fed up with politics, especially those leaving the Dem party because of all the violence, lies and false promises. A very diverse group of about 11,000 at present and growing constantly. No, they are not Russian “bots” as the fake media has described them. Check out their Facebook page……

My suggestion is that since those on the left do not like ICE (or evidently any other law enforcement agency that is there to protect them), is this: send a member or 2 of MS-13 to their homes & let them deal with the resultant chaos, bodily harm, mayhem & possible murder. A country without law & order is not a country; a country without a border is not a country.

Not only keep ICE, but add a massive Drug Enforcement Division, with broad sweeping powers, that include jurisdiction over state, city and county governments, as the latter are NOT doing their job, have lost local funding for same and in sanctuary cities the drug users and dealers have taken over, with endless rights, leaving their oppressed neighbors, with no recourse. So sick of the bleeding heart liberals, who do not want to arrest or jail them, and they have infested the sanctuary cities to the same degree of the illegal immigrants. MAGA.

UMM-HUMM. Get rid of Ice, then homeland security, and then all law enforcement. These damned idiot politicians spouting this BS have no idea what law enforcement is going through today. The politicians have tied law enforcement’s hands to the point they cannot adequately enforce the laws that keep this nation safe. I was in law enforcement for 28 years but I wouldn’t wear a uniform or badge today for any amount of salary. The only thing we can do is make sure these idiots don’t get into office and try to get rid of those we have.

A report came out just after the talk about abolishing Ice showed that Ice made 48,000 arrests on assault offences, 5,000 for on sexual assaults, 2,000 kidnappings, 1,800 homicides and 76,000 drug offences in 2017 these numbers do not include arrests by other agencies. Why would anyone want Americans to suffer more crimes.
