President Donald Trump slammed Democrat Sen. Bob Casey’s opposition to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) at Wednesday’s MAGA rally in Pennsylvania.

Trump stumped for Republicans and against Democrats at the rally, distinguishing the positions of candidates including Democrat Sen. Casey and Casey’s challenger, Rep. Lou Barletta.

He said Bob Casey fights to protect “violent illegal aliens,” supports sanctuary cities, and wants to get rid of ICE – unlike Barletta, who is fighting for Americans. Trump lauded the men and women of ICE as “brave people.”

“If we don’t have ICE, you’ll pay a big price,” said Trump.

He went after Casey for voting against Kate’s Law, the bill named after the young San Francisco woman killed by a five-time deported, seven-time convicted felon illegal alien. The killer told a local news outlet shortly after his capture that he chose San Francisco for it’s sanctuary city policies, which prevent local law enforcement from cooperating with federal immigration officials.

Casey “puts criminal aliens before American citizens, always has,” said Trump. He declared Casey must be “voted out of office.”

He went on to target Casey’s votes against tax cuts and Pennsylvania coal and charged that Casey “joined [the] left-wing mob by voting against Kavanaugh.”

President Trump urged voters that if they wanted to save American jobs and American lives, they will vote Casey out and replace him with Republican Lou Barletta.
