The Moment Trump Shut AOC Down During The State Of The Union Was Absolutely Magical! (VIDEO)
When someone like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says that she wants to abolish ICE you have to sit and wonder if she really understands what she is saying.
To put it in a context it would be like if Major League Baseball got rid of the home plate umpire and had one of the umpires that are in the outfield call balls and strikes. It would make no sense and do no good.
ICE agents are present all over the country and working in various capacities.
People like AOC tend to think for some reason that ICE agents are only stationed at the border or are trying to make life difficult for people just because they come from another country.
Hardly the case, ICE agents are here because they want to make sure that the people that are breaking the law by entering the country illegally are supposed to answer for what they have done.
There were many great moments from Tuesday night’s State of the Union address, but one of the best may have been President Donald Trump dashing leftist dreams of abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
ICE, as you probably know, has been in the cross-hairs of several prominent Democrats over the last few months. One of the loudest voices calling for the law enforcement agency to be disbanded is Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the freshman socialist representative from New York.
“One of these days, I hope people realize that the idea that ICE should be scrapped isn’t so crazy after all,” she recently posted on Twitter. She has previously called for ICE offices to be “occupied,” essentially making it more difficult for the agency to do important work including stopping sex traffickers.
But it isn’t just wide-eyed Ocasio-Cortez who wants the agency axed. “Democrats in Congress are introducing legislation to abolish the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency,” The Associated Press reported in July.
“The bill from Wisconsin Rep. Mark Pocan, a Democratic leader of the progressive caucus, would give Congress a year to develop a more ‘humane immigration enforcement system’ and terminate ICE,” the news service continued.
Conservatives and law enforcement experts have pushed back against those calls, and on Tuesday evening Trump addressed it directly.
“I pledge to you tonight that I will never abolish our heroes from ICE,” he firmly stated during the State of the Union address, almost certainly jabbing at Ocasio-Cortez and her leftist allies.
