Another step in the direction of making the abolition of ICE a mainstream position in the Democratic Party.
.@realDonaldTrump & his team of white nationalists, including Stephen Miller, have so misused @ICEgov that the agency can no longer accomplish its goals effectively. I’m introducing a bill to #AbolishICE & crack down on the agency’s blanket directive to target & round up people. pic.twitter.com/xhHsOHCdNH

When members of Congress are sponsoring bills, that’s a huge step forward. Suddenly, it becomes an acceptable position. Of course, abolishing ICE doesn’t solve the Republican Party’s commitment to ethnic cleansing, nor government security forces being the shock troops for that program. Abolishing ICE is a necessary but not sufficient part of the program to fix our nation. But starting over with our entire immigration infrastructure is a critical program for Democrats to adopt. Moreover, we need to think big now and then work out the details of what replaces it going forward. #AbolishICE is a great slogan to motivate the Democratic base, clearly setting the moral agenda that Democrats oppose American ethnic cleansing.
