As Twitchy reported, #FamiliesBelongTogether marches are being held across the country today, with plenty of protesters holding signs reading, “Abolish ICE.”
However, ICE, the Department of Homeland Security, and Customs and Border Protection are fighting back on social media, tweeting examples of their recent accomplishments, like rescuing people from the Arizona desert and seizing nearly 2,400 lbs of fentanyl that was being smuggled into the country.
The NRA’s Dana Loesch shared this particular tweet from ICE with her followers:
— ICE (@ICEgov) June 29, 2018
Special agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) on Tuesday led an enforcement action that resulted in seizing 21 rifles, 962 rounds of ammunition, ammunition magazines, belt-fed magazines, ballistic plates, armor carriers and ghillie (camouflage) suits.
In fiscal year 2017, HSI special agents seized 5855 weapons and 673,327 rounds of ammunition, helping to keep communities safer both in the United States and Mexico.
Nice work, ICE.
ICE stops gun smuggling. But Democrats are calling to abolish ICE. (Flashback: last admin smuggled arms to cartels in Mexico.) https://t.co/5s2biRVbgX

It’s not ICE they hate. It’s the rule of law and border control. They want the invading hordes to be let in. Why? Good question.

Isn't abolishing ICE like opening our borders up like the Dems have always wanted?

But… but… but more "sensible" gun laws… except for this exclusion of course. Gun running through the southern border is yet another great reason to abolish ICE, says liberal lunatics and these far-left Democratic politicians.

They fight sex trafficking and human smuggling as well. If someone is against ICE, they are either misinformed or have ulterior motives.

Sen. Gillibrand calls to abolish ICE and replace it with 'something that actually works' (guess what THAT means) https://t.co/Wn4Npqksxj
