Trump Sends Dems Into Tailspin With Direct Promise to ICE Agents Across America

The latest trend among Democrats across this fruited plain is to insist that, if Immigration and Customs Enforcement is actually enforcing immigration and customs laws, it needs to be disbanded. President Donald Trump says he’s going to make sure this never happens.

In a series of tweets Saturday morning, the president warned that the abolition of ICE would be the first thing on the Democrats’ agenda if they were to retake control of Congress, although he insisted he would stand in the way of any attempt to do this.

“The Democrats are making a strong push to abolish ICE, one of the smartest, toughest and most spirited law enforcement groups of men and women that I have ever seen,” Trump tweeted.

“I have watched ICE liberate towns from the grasp of MS-13 & clean out the toughest of situations. They are great!”

He then followed up with a message praising, “the great and brave men and women of ICE” and telling them to “not worry or lose your spirit.

“You are doing a fantastic job of keeping us safe by eradicating the worst criminal elements. So brave! The radical left Dems want you out. Next it will be all police. Zero chance, It will never happen!”

The fact that this reassurance would even be necessary would have seemed superfluous just weeks ago. However, that’s no longer the case.

Democrats calling for the abolition of ICE began with folks like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — the avowed socialist who captured the Democrat nomination for a New York City congressional seat against entrenched, moneyed party hack Rep. Joseph Crowley last week — and backbencher Democrat Rep. Mark Pocan of Wisconsin, according to the Washington Examiner. Not exactly a Murderer’s Row of Democrats, at least a few weeks ago.

That quickly changed, particularly after Ocasio-Cortez became a media darling by winning the nomination on Tuesday. Later in the week, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand both joined the calls to abolish the agency.

De Blasio has long uncritically supported whatever ridiculous movement currently curries favor with the editorial staff over at the Village Voice, so this wasn’t entirely surprising.

Gillibrand, on the other hand, was more of a shocker, particularly because her formless political ideology can be encapsulated by the phrase vox populi, vox dei. The fact she now believes this isn’t a political liability among the voters she wants to capture — in particular, the national. American electorate, given that it’s obvious she’s a 2020 presidential contender — is more than a little worrying.

Of course, I’d be willing to wager that this shift is a miscalculation of epic proportions, but the point is the sentiment is out there, and not just on the fringes of the Democrat caucus.

And for Trump to call out the opposition party like this has to be throwing Democrat political calculation into a talispin.

Abolishing ICE will never happen with a sane president in the White House, of course — but if Democrats want a showdown with Trump over the preposterous idea, they’ll certainly get one.
