Dems #WalkAway, State They Would Vote Against Their Own Bill To Abolish ICE If It Hit The Floor
Democrats will #WalkAway from their own bill to abolish ICE if it reaches the floor - they were bluffing.
Recap: The Democrats have been demonizing Immigration and Customs Enforcement for months now and have created a narrative that they are "terrorists" in order to fire up support for what is left in their tiny base. Leaders of the Democratic Party knew the Abolishment of ICE would not only take away thousands of jobs from Hispanics (52% of ICE agents are Hispanic and all of them are bilingual) but be catastrophic to national security.

A number of Democrats drafted a bill to abolish the Immigration and Customs Enforcement and then stated they would vote against it if the legislation went to the floor. So in other words they were bluffing. They never intended to abolish ICE. Just like always the Democrats have been lying to the American people. Fake news, and fake narratives. It's hard to believe they think they can "take down Trump" in the mid terms in the first place. They have nothing left in their play book.
Check out this report we found on Fox News that elaborates on more details: "Democrats who drafted a bill to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement [ICE] suddenly announced Thursday night that they would vote against it if the legislation went to the floor, after House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy told Fox News he intended to call their bluff.
"We know Speaker [Paul] Ryan is not serious about passing our 'Establishing a Humane Immigration Enforcement System Act,' so members of Congress, advocacy groups, and impacted communities will not engage in this political stunt," Reps. Mark Pocan of Wisconsin, Pramila Jayapal of Washington and Adriano Espaillat of New York told The Hill and other news outlets. "If Speaker Ryan puts our bill on the floor, we plan to vote no and will instead use the opportunity to force an urgently needed and long-overdue conversation on the House floor."
McCarthy, R-Calif., said earlier Thursday he would place a bill to abolish ICE on the House floor later this month.
Democrats have long pushed back on the administration’s immigration policies but tensions have escalated in the past month over family separations at the border. Calls from some far-left lawmakers to abolish ICE have grown ahead of the November elections.
Former presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., last week slammed the federal agency as being a part of a “cruel, dysfunctional immigration system” that needs “comprehensive” reform."
The evidence is overwhelmingly clear the Democrats truly have run out of ideas. Remember the last idea they had was "Drain the Swamp"? Oh wait, that was President Trump's idea! Looks like the #WalkAway Movement has really taken a toll on them. (About the Author, Source)
