Boston City Councilor Ayanna Pressley supports defunding ICE

Boston City Councilor At-Large Ayanna Pressley says she supports defunding the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency in light of its "central role in enforcing deeply flawed, destructive immigration policies."

A number of high-profile Democrats, including Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Rep. Jim McGovern, have said they want to defund the agency, which has drawn intense scrutiny following the separation of thousands of children from their parents at the southern border.

I'd say 43% of Democrats polled is a "fairly large" portion of the party (and likely growing in some urban blue districts). It's not a small fringe element by any stretch.

So, yeah, sounds like they would like local police to help ICE with a accessible database. Ya right. rolleyes

Way to cherry pick! How about something a little more recent:


But you don't mention the fact that people inside ICE also want to see it broken up. Why?

No more cherry picking than you are. Your poll is not even a couple months later. Polling this issue is like sticking your finger in the wind day to day. Some negative or positive MSM stories get the Dems AND Repubs swinging wildly at narratives and agendas (like the caravan arrival likely did the last couple months).

As for your "fact" that "some" people inside ICE would like to see it broken up?

So what? I'm sure there's also plenty "inside" that'd like to see it doubled in size, as YOU even suggested be done to relieve local police from trying to enforce.

Can't have it both ways, if you want illegal immigration actual rule of law enforced. Either you want more, tougher ICE, INS, BCP, or you want to see more open border type policies?

Which is it?

Without looking, do you know what ICE was originally intended to do?

Bock you
