Democrats are going off the rails in a big way.
As we head into the 2018 midterms, they’re hanging their collective hats on the “Abolish ICE” narrative.
So much so, they actually introduced a bill to end ICE, and as you can imagine, it was shredded beyond recognition.
From Daily Wire
On Thursday, three House Democratic members introduced a measure calling for the abolishment of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The GOP majority, calling their bluff, enthusiastically agreed the measure should be brought to the House floor for a vote so Democrats would be on record supporting such a move. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said he planned to bring the Democratic bill to the floor.
Then, as if by magic (or reading the polls, which show only 25% of Americans think ICE should be abolished), the same three Democratic congressmen who introduced the measure, Reps. Mark Pocan (D-WI), Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) and Adriano Espaillat (D-NY), said they would vote no if the measure reached the House floor.
Here is the ostensible reason the Three Gallant Musketeers offered for turning tail and running:
"We know Speaker 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."

According to The Hill, the bill would “create a commission to examine ICE’s responsibilities and then recommend transferring them to other agencies.”
