The democrat political apparatus, supported by Speaker Pelosi, is committed to the removal of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) as part of their agenda. However, the elimination of ICE is not supported by the majority of Americans, so the democrats are using a stealth maneuver to accomplish their goal.
As part of their position on border security negotiations democrats are trying to insert limits or caps on the number of detainees ICE can hold. Former ICE Director Tom Homan explains how 30,000 criminal aliens would have to be released from detention if Democrats get their way. WATCH:
“I’ve been saying for almost a year that I don’t think they’re ever going to accomplish the abolish ICE that they’ve been saying they’re going to do. But I’ve been saying what they’re going to do is bankrupt ICE to make them ineffective. They’ll take their money away so they can’t do their job.”
“The number they put on the table, like 32,000 cap beds. Understand ICE is currently at 47,000, which means they’re 15,000 over the cap. Now we’re halfway through the year. To get to that 32,000 by the end of year they’re going to have to go 15,000 below 32. So that means if they’re 15,000 above, they have to go 15,000 below — ICE will have to release 30,000 people from custody.”
