Some Democrats in Congress seem determined to “resist” the Trump administration anyway they can. Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) is not the only Democrat calling for outrageous actions to be taken against Trump administration officials. On Monday, U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan, (D-Wis.) became the latest Democrat to offer an unusual proposal against the administration.
Following his recent visit to the border, Pocan is now calling for an end to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
In fact, Pocan has indicated that he will be introducing legislation to abolish ICE.
Pocan issued the following statement:
“During my trip to the southern border, it was clear that ICE, and its actions of hunting down and tearing apart families, has wreaked havoc on far too many people. From conducting raids at garden centers and meatpacking plants, to breaking up families at churches and schools, ICE is tearing apart families and ripping at the moral fabric of our nation. Unfortunately, President Trump and his team of white nationalists, including Stephen Miller, have so misused ICE that the agency can no longer accomplish its goals effectively.”
“I’m introducing legislation that would abolish ICE and crack down on the agency’s blanket directive to target and round up individuals and families. The heartless actions of this abused agency do not represent the values of our nation and the U.S. must develop a more humane immigration system, one that treats every person with dignity and respect.”
If successful, Pocan’s bill would dismantle ICE and establish instead, a commission. The commission’s function would be to provide recommendations to Congress about how the “U.S. government can implement a humane immigration enforcement system that upholds the dignity of all individuals, while transferring necessary functions to other agencies.”
Pocan went a step further and similarly to Waters actions, showed his disrespect for the Trump administration.
Pocan tweeted the following in which he called President Donald Trump and those who work for the President, “white nationalists.” Ironically, Stephen Miller who is Jewish was singled out by Pocan as a “white nationalist.”
@realDonaldTrump & his team of white nationalists, including Stephen Miller, have so misused @ICEgov that the agency can no longer accomplish its goals effectively. I’m introducing a bill to #AbolishICE & crack down on the agency’s blanket directive to target & round up people.”

While abolishing ICE seems to be the new “battle cry” for Democrats in the upcoming 2018 and 2020 elections, many believe that the more Democratic officials speak out against Trump, his administration, government agencies like ICE and his supporters, the more it helps Trump.
Even Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) weighed in on how Democrats are only hurting their chances the more they show hostility toward those connected with Trump, including his supporters.
“Trump haters still haven’t realized how much they help him with their condescension of those who either voted for him or don’t share their hatred of him. And how much they help him with their irrational hostility towards those who work for him.”

No doubt the anti-Trump rhetoric that has been unleashed by some Democrats will continue to cause other governmental agencies like the Department of Homeland Security to receive threats against it’s employees, as well.
On Monday, a burned animal carcass was allegedly left on the doorstep of a DHS staffer as tensions rise.
Hopefully, Republicans will be able to use the hatred and hostility of the Left to ride the “Red Wave” all the way to victory in 2018 and 2020.
