Dems introduce bill to abolish ICE

In maybe the first and only documented move by the left to make government smaller, a group of House Democrats introduced a bill to eliminate ICE and disperse its duties to other agencies.  Via The Hill:

The new proposal, unveiled by Democratic Reps. Mark Pocan (Wis.), Pramila Jayapal (Wash.) and Adriano Espaillat (N.Y.), is the first piece of legislation to tackle the thorny issue, which has become a political lightning rod on both sides of the ideological spectrum in recent weeks.

Liberal Democrats have latched on to the “Abolish ICE” movement to protest President Trump’s aggressive approach to deportations, while Republicans have hammered the effort as a soft-on-crime strategy that threatens public safety.

 

The bill’s supporters contend that ICE, which was launched in 2003 as part of the creation of the Homeland Security Department, has become “militarized” in its approach to deporting immigrants under the Trump administration. They’re pointing to recent high-profile raids on undocumented workers, reports of substandard detention facilities and the ongoing saga of family separations at the border as evidence that ICE has lost its compass and needs to be scrapped.

This is very much a losing issue coming from the left.  A recent poll shows only 25% of Americans support abolishing ICE.  Much as they want it to be, having secure borders and actually executing the laws that are already in place are very much what most Americans want.

Napoleon’s “never interrupt an enemy when he is making a mistake” could not be more appropriate here.  The left pushed too hard too quickly in showing their true globalist colors and what they really want for this country.  Middle of the road people are realizing this now.  And we shouldn’t interrupt the Dems while they self destruct.  This will alienate the moderate portion of their base, and those Dems in office in moderate or red states up for re-election these mid terms must tread lightly.

Loser Joe Crowley complains Ocasio-Cortez made the campaign too much about race

Nine term Congressman, loser to extreme leftist Ocasio-Cortez, was recently complaining that she had made this too much about race.  Funny hearing this from one of the leftist imbeciles whose policies for the past 50 years have inevitably led to this very moment.  Via The Intercept:

His opponent, he said, was trying to make the campaign “about race” — a strategy he called “unnecessarily divisive” at a time when the party needed to be “fighting Republicans, not other Democrats,” according to two people at the gathering.

“I can’t help that I was born white,” Crowley said. One of those who heard Crowley’s speech, Nick Haby, a Democratic activist who attended the meet-and-greet, agreed to speak on the record, while the second asked for anonymity given Crowley’s power in the Queens political machine.

Literally every single Democratic policy is about sowing division and putting people into groups.  Identity politics has been their game for decades now.  Did he really not think this would happen?  Did he really think all the minorities he “championed” for so long would reward him kindly and remember him in the future?  Of course not.  This is but a microcosm of what is to come.  Population replacement is very real, and when they have majorities the rest of us will be marginalized, and have nobody but ourselves to blame.

Worse, he ran unchallenged for several elections in a row.  This probably could’ve come to fruition even sooner than it did.  And boy was he replaced by a real winner:

If Crowley positions himself as a photo negative of the president, Ocasio-Cortez is a different medium altogether. A 28-year-old woman and daughter to a Puerto Rican mother and Bronx father, Ocasio-Cortez’s most notable novelty is arguably not her demographic profile, but her policy profile. She calls for the abolition of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Medicare for All, tuition-free public college, a federal jobs guarantee, and criminal justice reform “now.” “It doesn’t take 100 years to do this,” she intones in a viral campaign video. “It takes political courage.”

They aren’t even hiding their agenda anymore.  They want to turn this country into an open borders, socialist shithole.  Solid running points from this 28 year old indoctrinated loser.  And keep in mind the guy she beat was no slouch.  He was largely considered next in line to replace Nancy Pelosi as leader of the House Democrats if she retired or was ousted.  Democratic policies have turned this into identity politics.  There is no turning back, and now it looks like the game will have to be played that way, whether we wanted it or not.
