Townhall posted an article today about the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Lately they have come under fire from some Democrats for doing their job. So what exactly is the job they are doing?
The article states:
Today on Fox News, former director of United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Thomas Homan, responded to comedian Michelle Wolff’s parody video comparing ICE to the terrorist organization ISIS. Homan condemned the video and explained that ICE has “arrested over 2,000 child predators” among other nefarious criminals who threaten the public.
Yesterday, Michelle Wolff released a mock recruiting video for ICE, featuring officers saying things such as “ICE is … rooting out the foreign enemy” and “ICE is … attacking when they least expect.” It also featured scenes reminiscent of the Islamic State’s propaganda such as tactical training and masked men. Wolff, dressed as Homeland Security Secretary, Kirstjen Nielsen, ends the video by saying “there’s no better representation of American values right now than ICE is.”
The article concludes with a quote from Mr. Homan:
Since 2003, ICE has “arrested more than 16,000 individuals for crimes against children, including the production and distribution of online child pornography.” During Operation SOAR in 2017, ICE arrested 32 illegal aliens with past histories ranging from sexual abuse to rape. ICE also made “more than 4,800 criminal arrests in national anti-gang operations” last year.
It is truly a shame that our media encourages lawlessness among Americans. Promoting a negative image of ICE encourages lack of respect for the laws of America. Many of the people criticizing ICE have no idea what ICE does or how they have protected children in America and children being brought to America to be trafficked.
