Senator Tom Cotton thanked ICE then hit back at Democrats for not supporting the agency in a great speech delivered on the Senate floor:

“I’d like to take this opportunity to express my support for the 20,000 men and women of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.”

“They work hard every day to keep drugs off our streets, to stop human trafficking, to protect our communities from gang violence, and yes, to enforce our immigration laws. Theirs can be a thankless job, but they do it with courage, dedication, and professionalism. So I, for one, want to say, thank you.”

“Those who want to abolish ICE really just want open borders. Their obsession with open borders is so great that they are willing to risk the public safety to achieve it.”

WFB reports:

Numerous Democratic politicians have called for ICE to be abolished. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D., N.Y.) called ICE a “deportation force” and called for its elimination. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) said “we need to rebuild our immigration system from top to bottom starting by replacing ICE with something that reflects our morality and that works.”
