Ryan: Dems Trying to Abolish ICE Have 'Jumped the Sharks'

By    |   Thursday, 12 July 2018 02:13 PM

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., blasted those Democratic lawmakers pushing to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and said they have "really jumped the sharks," The Hill is reporting.

"They have really jumped the sharks on the left. … It’s amazing," Ryan said. "You want to abolish the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement? This is the agency that gets gangs out of our communities, that helps prevent drugs from flowing into our schools, that rescues people from human trafficking.

"They want to get rid of this agency? It’s the craziest position I’ve ever seen and they are tripping over themselves to move too far to the left. They are out of the mainstream of the America, and that’s one of the reasons why I feel very good about this fall."

Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Wis., introduced a bill on Thursday to shut down ICE and creat a bipartisan groups to find a replacement.

"Sadly, President (Donald) Trump has so misused ICE that the agency can no longer accomplish its goals effectively," Pocan was quoted in The Washington Times.
