POLITICO wrote a story based on their poll that basically said only one in four voters supports ICE being abolished.
Which of course totally FREAKED OUT the Democrat’s latest socialist darling, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez whose main talking point is dismantling the agency.
Skip the headline, read the report – a full 43% of Democratic voters ALREADY support #AbolishICE. Another 23% are undecided. This is huge for a new policy proposal.
Only 34% of Dem voters support ICE.
The electorate supports a strong progressive message.https://t.co/woFP4yTO1P

A new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll shows that most voters oppose eliminating Immigration and Customs Enforcement — the homeland security agency some liberal Democrats have called for abolishing.
Only 1 in 4 voters in the poll, 25 percent, believe the federal government should get rid of ICE. The majority, 54 percent, think the government should keep ICE. Twenty-one percent of voters are undecided.
Skip the headline she says. Fine, the story itself is equally as damning.
And maybe math isn’t her strongest subject but if only 43% of Democrats support that initiative that means the majority does NOT. This is only huge in that Democrats like Ocasio-Cortez are being open about their desire to open our borders and disregard our sovereignty.
Respectfully, abolish ice sounds synonymous with open borders. I’m a democratic leaning independant voter in your district, I really think the phrase abolish ice is a tactical mistake.

What would you replace it with?

That’s the whole point.
You’re absurd. Wow. If an open border is so wonderful, why is it Canada and Mexico all have stiff penalties for illegally crossing and Mexico even has it’s own border wall… are they racists?… #LiberalismIsAMentalDisorder pic.twitter.com/CZYSX6IXFG

It’s bizarre how only America is expected to ignore her borders and allow anyone and everyone into the country.
And by bizarre we mean annoying, stupid, and quite frankly ridiculous.
Politico constantly gets it wrong…they are a Neo-Lib rag, so no surprise there.

A neo-liberal rag?
HA HA HA HA HA.
Tough crowd, POLITICO.
What will #abolishICE accomplish? Some agency will have to enforce immigration law, it will just have a different name, no? Isn’t the solution to change the laws that are enforced, rather than the name of the agency that enforces them?

Quiet you, with all your reasonable solutions and rational concerns.
Democratic Socialists don’t have time for such things.
Please stop using divisive hashtags like this. I do know ICE has several different functions and I appreciate a sane voice like Democratic Texas Representative Joaquín Castro. Do not DIVIDE us on the left, it could cause Putin/tRUmp winning again in November.

Oh please, Alexandria, divide the party.
