The ultimate troll move…
In late July, after months of hate being directed at ICE agents by the left, President Trump confronted the issue of the left’s desire to abolish ICE in his weekly address. Trump used his address to reassure ICE that the majority of Americans are with them, telling and his administration will always have their backs. The President reminded his viewers about the role of ICE and how many lives they save in America. Trump also reminded Americans that without ICE, we no longer have a country.
In fiscal year 2017 alone, ICE arrested more than 127,000 aliens charged or convicted of crimes inside of the United States. These were very serious crimes, and far too many of them.
Yet leading Democrat politicians have called to abolish ICE. Nobody even believes it; they want to abolish ICE.
Last week, 167 Democrats in the House of Representatives refused to vote for a resolution to support the heroes of ICE. These are brave and great men and women. They’re in the trenches every day, taking the fight straight to vicious gangs (who) prey on our people; they hurt our people; they kill our people.
Without the brave people of ICE, we would have no enforcement, no laws, no borders — and therefore, we wouldn’t even have a country.
So to the courageous public servants at ICE — men and women, great ones — we want you to know that the American people are with you, and my administration has your back, 100 percent. You are the heroes who protect the lives of our citizens, the safety of our communities, and the sovereignty of our great nation.
We love you, we support you, and we always will stand with you.
The Hill is now reporting that President Trump is planning to honor Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents next week.
An administration official told Politico on Thursday that the White House will be holding the “Salute to the Heroes of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs [and] Border Protection” on Monday.
