Dem Sen Gillibrand: Abolishing ICE Should Be One of the First Things Dems Do After Taking Congress

At OZY Fest in New York City, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) said if the Democratic Party takes the majority as a result of the 2018 midterms getting rid of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency should be one of the first things they do.

Gillibrand said, “So when we flip the House and flip the Senate, I think the first thing we should do is deal with the children who have been separated from their families at the border. I think we should get rid of ICE. We should separate out two missions, and do the anti-terrorism mission, the national security mission, and then on the other side make sure you’re doing looking at immigration as a humanitarian issue.”
