House Democrats Vow to Oppose Own ‘Abolish ICE’ Legislation


Showing how this stunt calling for the abolition of ICE is again . . . yet another Political stunt aimed at discrediting President Trump (with a lot of wasting time mixed in).

Republicans are now going to bring this
Democrat proposal to abolish ICE
to a public vote and hold the Democrats accountable for this divisive rhetoric.

House Democrats Vow to Oppose Own ‘Abolish ICE’ Legislation

John Binder 13 Jul 2018 Breitbart News

The House Democrats who wrote the legislation that would abolish all immigration enforcement across the United States now say that when their bill comes up for a vote, they will oppose it.

In interviews with Vox, Reps. Mark Pocan (D-WI), Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), and Adriano Espaillat (D-NY) vowed to oppose their own bill – that they wrote less than a month ago to abolish the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency — thus ending all interior enforcement of immigration.

On Thursday, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) announced that he would be bringing the House Democrats’ “abolish ICE” legislation up for a vote ahead of the congressional August recess, as Breitbart News reported. The move is to expose Democrats who would vote ahead of the 2018 midterms for ending all immigration enforcement.

Now, however, after hearing that their legislation would get a vote before the midterm elections, all three Democrats who authored the legislation to abolish ICE say they now oppose their own bill. . . .

I remember when the Democrats were publicly accusing Geeorge Bush of wanting to secretly reinstitute the military draft (it was around 2004 if I recall correctly but the date is not as relevant as the principle).

All the while it was (at least one of) the Democrats who were working to get the military draft re-started.

Democrat Congressmen Charlie Rangle even had a bill proposing this (in all fairness, many Democrats refused to go along with Rangle).

The Republicans just went and put it up for a vote and forced Rangle to vote against his own bill.


This is what happens when you legislate/rule by emotion instead of by logic.
