Writing at The American Conservative, Pat Buchanan details the ugly turn the American left, led by the likes of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, is taking in its fight against President Trump’s hard-line immigration enforcement efforts. Warren and other crazed progressives have taken up the call to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). President Trump rightly suggests that if that happened Americans would “have a country that you’re going to be afraid to walk out of your house.” Pat writes (abridged):
The issue of 2018: should we, or should we not, abolish ICE and embrace the progressive alternative of open borders?
“No Borders! No Nations! No Deportations!” “Abolish ICE!”
Before last week, these were the mindless slogans of an infantile Left, seen on signs at rallies to abolish ICE, the agency that arrests and deports criminal aliens who have no right to be in our country.
By last week, however, “Abolish ICE!” was no longer the exclusive slogan of the unhinged Left. National Democrats were signing on.
Friday, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio joined the clamor: “We should abolish ICE.” Over the weekend, Senator Elizabeth Warren signed on: “President Trump seems to think that the only way to have immigration rule is to rip parents from their family (and) treat rape victims and refugees like terrorists and to put children in cages.”
What ICE does is “ugly” and “wrong,” said Warren.
“We need to rebuild our immigration system from top to bottom starting by replacing ICE with something that reflects our morality.”
President Donald Trump describes this latest liberal campaign as social and political insanity: “You get rid of ICE, you’re going to have a country that you’re going to be afraid to walk out of your house.”
Last week, the Supreme Court ruled that not only is the Trump travel ban constitutional, government unions have no right to extract “agency fees” from workers who do not wish to support the union.
Such fees violate the First Amendment rights of government workers not to promote policies or ideas in which they disbelieve.
It is known that since September 2016, ICE has arrested nearly 5,000 criminal aliens in New York—individuals with a criminal conviction in addition to their violation of immigration laws.
What is it in the DNA of the Left that it is always ready to enlist in any new war on cops?
