Do These Dems Want to Abolish ICE Too?
Yesterday, New York Senator and 2020 hopeful Kirsten Gillibrand called for ICE to be abolished on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time:
“We believe that we should protect families that need our help and that is not what ICE is doing today. That’s why I believe you should get rid of it, start over, reimagine it, and build something that actually works.”
There are quite a few Democrats on the ballot this fall who have aligned themselves with Gillibrand by taking money from her PAC, Off the Sidelines. This raises the question: do they stand with Gillibrand and want to do away with our immigration enforcement agency?
Of those running for Senate, Kyrsten Sinema, who represents the border state of Arizona has taken $31,000. Nevada’s Jacky Rosen has banked $20,000 and Heidi Heitkamp, Claire McCaskill, Tammy Baldwin, Amy Klobuchar, and Debbie Stabenow have all taken $10,000 each.
The following Democratic House candidates have all received $5,000 from Off the Sidelines:
Dana Balter (NY-24), Cindy Axne (IA-03), Angie Craig (MN-02), Abby Finkenauer (IA-01), Ann Kirkpatrick (AZ-02), Susie Lee (NV-03), Amy McGrath (KY-06), Katie Porter (CA-45), Haley Stevens (MI-11).
These candidates in competitive races will have to answer for the hard left shift their party has taken in the immigration debate.
