Mike Pence Says Trump Administration 'Will Never Abolish ICE'

Vice President Pence on Friday admonished Democrats who have called for dismantling Immigration and Customs Enforcement during a visit to the agency's headquarters, where he told employees that he considers them "patriots" and "heroes".
During Friday's speech, the vice president offered words of encouragement and support as Democrats ramp-up their attacks on the agency with calls for it to be abolished. "We will always stand proudly with our courageous heroes of ICE and the Border Patrol".
Pence also relayed that "a leading candidate" for governor of NY had recently referred to ICE as a "terrorist organization" - a characterization Pence called "unacceptable". Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass. and Sen. "Just when we thought the Democrats couldn't get any more reckless, leading members of that party, and many of its candidates for higher office", are calling to abolish ICE, Pence said.
Gillibrand, Warren and de Blasio are potential 2020 challengers to Trump. "And that's why I believe you should get rid of it, start over, reimagine it and build something that actually works".
Meanwhile, rising Democratic superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who won a shocking victory in the New York Democratic party congressional primary in June, is also among those who've called for the agency's abolishment. The calls are the latest development in the controversy over the federal government temporarily separating parents and children who illegally crossed the southern border for the duration of criminal proceedings. "They are being separated throughout this country by ICE", Nixon said on The View. "I can think of no better description than to call ICE a terrorist organization, and I will wear any criticism from Mike Pence as a badge of honor". That seems really clear.
The bloggers' observation follows several prominent pro-abortion Democrats, and even the nation's leading pro-abortion lobbying groups, denouncing the Trump administration over the scandal using language strikingly similar to what pro-lifers say about abortion. Ultimately, the president signed an executive order to end the practice. That practice sparked outrage among lawmakers, public reprisals, and protests.
