Alexandria Jumps The Shark – ICE Meltdown…
Quick hit from Occasional Cortex last night.
‘What We Are Seeing Is Death — Why Are We Funding ICE At All?
Progressives really do seem all-in on open borders. Ask yourself what sort of reforms might conceivably be made to ICE or CBP rendering them sufficiently “humane” in the left’s eyes that they’d then turn around and say, “Okay, here’s some funding, let the deportations resume”? Deportations are the core of the alleged inhumanity in their eyes. That’s why the slogan du jour is “abolish ICE,” not “reform ICE.”
Perhaps we’ll have a test in 2020 of which side is truly the more radical on immigration, the one led by an American hero who wants to put a wall along the border or the one led by people like Sandy who can’t figure out why we fund deportations in the first place.
Another highlight from Twitter…
