As Democrats continue their war on Immigration and Customs Enforcement, with calls to abolish the agency, the Trump administration is standing strong behind the men and women who work there.
During a speech at ICE headquarters in Washington DC Friday, Vice President Mike Pence fully backed the agency and explained why it is crucial to the safety of the country.
The calls to abolish @ICEgov are not just outrageous - they're irresponsible. Abolishing ICE would mean more illegal immigration, more violent crime, more vicious gangs, more drugs, and more human trafficking. #IStandWithICE pic.twitter.com/MWTF4x8PG4— Vice President Mike Pence (@VP) July 6, 2018
The heroes of @ICEgov are being attacked and demonized for the work that they do at an unprecedented rate. The threats against ICE officers and their families must stop, and they must stop now. #IStandWithICE pic.twitter.com/mNgxEymJ6O— Vice President Mike Pence (@VP) July 6, 2018
The men and women of @ICEgov are American heroes – you’re doing an important job. We’re going to continue to work to ensure this agency has the support and the resources that you need and the respect that you deserve. #IStandWithICE— Vice President Mike Pence (@VP) July 6, 2018
Calls to abolish ICE are not just outrageous – they are irresponsible. Abolishing ICE would mean more illegal immigration… Abolishing ICE would mean more violent crime… Abolishing ICE would mean more vicious gangs like MS-13. #IStandWithICE— Vice President Mike Pence (@VP) July 6, 2018
President Trump again called on Congress to fix broken immigration law yesterday, saying the current system is "insane."
