Sen. Elizabeth Warren said Saturday at a Boston rally that she was joining the growing chorus of leftists and Democrats who are calling for an end to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. The far-left senator cast her lot with the likes of Kirsten Gillibrand, Bill de Blasio, Kamala Harris, and Bernie Sanders, all of whom have suggested that ICE should either be reformed or scrapped altogether.
“The president’s deeply immoral actions have made it obvious we need to rebuild our immigration system from top to bottom starting by replacing ICE with something that reflects our morality and that works,” Warren said. “President Trump seems to think that the only way to have immigration rule is to rip parents from their family, is to treat rape victims and refugees like terrorists, and to put children in cages. This is ugly and this is wrong and this is not the way to run our country.”
Okay, we’ll just skip over the commentary we could provide about Warren’s ridiculous “picture” of things at the border; it’s really nothing we haven’t heard from the mainstream media – ad nauseum – for the last month. We would expect nothing less than this kind of apocalyptic, unhinged-from-reality rhetoric from a politician like Warren. We will instead simply ask: All of these problems at the border…aren’t we actually talking about the Border Patrol, and not ICE? Hmm. We guess “Abolish the Border Patrol” doesn’t sell as many tickets.
We’re not sure where Democrats got the idea that Americans are ready to abandon any attempt to enforce U.S. immigration law, but we’ve got a feeling that they’re in for a rude electoral awakening in November. Even with the ONSLAUGHT of images and rhetoric coming from the media over the last month, the majority of voters still think that the PARENTS of illegal immigrants are more to blame for what’s happening at the border than President Trump. If the will of the people is impervious to this kind of nonstop propaganda, we’re confident in saying that Democrats like Warren are barking up the wrong tree.
President Trump seems to feel the same way. Asked about the Democrats and their new pet issue on Fox News, he said he wasn’t concerned.
“I hope they keep thinking about it, because they’re going to get beaten so badly,” he said. “You know ICE, these are the guys that go in and take MS-13, and they take them out. Because they’re much tougher than MS-13, like by a factor of 10. And these are the ones – you get rid of ICE you’re going to have a country that you’re going to be afraid to walk out of your house. I love that issue if they’re going to actually do that.”
Well, what’s happening is that the Democrats are reaping what they’ve sown. The far left is taking over, and it is going to turn their party into an extremist, anti-American, socialist organization that can’t win elections outside a few dark-blue hotspots on the coasts. But hey, if they need Republicans to take the wheel for five or ten years while they get their stuff sorted out…no problem.
