Dem Rep Nadler: Abolishing ICE ‘A Distraction’ – ‘Not the Main Question’

On Monday’s “CNN Newsroom,” Representative Jerry Nadler (D-NY) responded to a question on whether he supports abolishing ICE by saying, “that’s a distraction.” And that “whether you abolish ICE is not the main question.”

Nadler said, “I think that’s a distraction. I think the main point is that we have to oppose the racist and savage, anti-family and anti-immigration policy of the Trump administration. ICE is a tool, which is being misused by the Trump administration. And yes, there are things you ought to reform about it.”

He added, “I think, frankly, whether you abolish ICE is not the main question. You’ve got to change it so it can’t be misused the way it’s being misused. But the main thing is to change these policies.”
