It’s wild to see people frame abolishing ICE as a radical idea when ICE didn’t even exist before 2003. This is why it’s so dangerous to create more policing agencies/give more people policing powers. Otherwise, in 15 years people will think it’s radical to disarm the teachers.

Created as part of the Department of Homeland Security in 2003, ICE dramatically increased deportations compared to its predecessor, the INS.

. Its predecessor, Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) was under Dept of Labor from 1933-40 & Dept of Justice from 1940-2003

INS was an immigration/naturalization service, ICE director reports to Homeland Security head (currently Kirstjen Nielsen ), who's a member of President Trump's Cabinet. Most likely the stepped up deportations/abuses we see under ICE are approved by Trump.

ICE is premised on the idea that undocumented immigrants represent a threat to public safety in America. That premise is a lie.

. 🤔 it's more of shift away from viewing immigrants as necessary for a nation of immigrants and running a gov't service to naturalize them to one of law enforcement. ICE is concerned w/customs & immigration enforcement, acts as enforcement end of court deportations.

Customs needs militarized, mobile, aggressive enforcement. Who else is gonna collect the steel import taxes?

Additionally, they’re one of the most unchecked policing agencies in the country bolstered and empowered by an administration that seems hell-bent on separating families and criminalizing all immigrants.

The “need” for ICE is founded on a myth perpetuated by ignorance & hate toward a diverse group of people who substantially add to our society & 🌎, but are marginalized and subjected to hateful practices based on that myth.

Violent undocumented illegals do represent a public safety issue

Whether you like it or not, any “ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT” is violating federal laws by living here. You can bring emotion into it by citing families being separated... but that doesn’t change the fact that they’re violating immigration laws.

The facts beg to differ, not to mention 25 to30% of federal prisoners are illegals

Crime statistics are skewed. Literally ever police officer that I know says that they’ve been told that unless illegals have directly harmed someone else, just let them go, because bringing them in is pointless. Not worth the paperwork, and the govt won’t do anything about it.

I know several cops in a neighboring town that will tell you that on things like DUI, they’ve been instructed to just let them go unless they’ve hurt someone, because until someone has been injured or killed, bringing them in is pointless. All that they can do is hold them...
