A group of GOP senators introduced a resolution Wednesday to condemn calls to abolish the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, a move that comes as Democratic lawmakers in the House are preparing legislation that would eradicate the agency.
“I am deeply troubled by the Democrats’ reckless calls to abolish ICE,” Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., who spearheaded the effort, said in a statement Wednesday. “Eliminating ICE shows a blatant disregard for the welfare of the American people and our nation’s immigration laws. With the ever present threat of MS-13 and international terrorism, along with an opioid crisis being fought at our border, abolishing ICE is unthinkable.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“ICE officers are in the trenches fighting those threats and protecting American families from the cross-border crime and illegal immigration that endanger our families,” he added. “ICE deserves our gratitude and respect, not scorn and ridicule.”
Other senators who backed the resolution included Sens. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, John Cornyn, R-Texas, Thom Tillis, R-N.C., and Ted Cruz, R-Texas, among others.
“ICE Agents are the front line when it comes to enforcing our immigration laws. They risk their lives on a daily basis to protect American citizens and immigrants from violent criminals, drug cartels, and human traffickers,” Cruz said in a statement. “Calls to abolish ICE not only disregard our immigration laws and give implicit license to those who want to enter our country illegally, they also smear the heroic sacrifices of ICE agents and put people at risk, especially in border states like Texas. I will continue to support the brave men and women who serve as ICE agents, and urge my colleagues to stand by ICE and honor the key role it plays in keeping our country safe.”
