CNN should be ashamed for allowing someone to say this on the air. Commentator Angela Rye recently compared employees of ICE, who risk their lives doing their jobs, to slave traders. Absolutely sickening.

CNN Political Commentator Compares ICE to Slave Traders
CNN political commentator Angela Rye on Thursday compared those who separate families at America’s southern border to slave traders.
Rye and former Trump campaign chief spokesman Jason Miller were discussing Ivanka Trump’s comments regarding the issue of family separation of illegal immigrants with CNN host Chris Cuomo. Miller defended Ivanka’s comments and said it was important that the U.S. enforces its immigration laws and criticized Rye for wanting an “open borders” policy.
“What I don’t want to enforce is your president’s nonsense,” Rye responded.
Rye’s reference to “your president” several times prompted Miller to ask Rye if she was Canadian since she refused to say Trump was her president as well…
“You have nothing to add except for asking me if I’m Canadian, and, no, I’m not,” Rye said. “I wish I could tell you where from Africa my ancestors came from, at least part of them, but I wouldn’t know because the same bigots who are sending people back away from their children are the ones who brought my ancestors here on a slave ship.”

And CNN wonders why their ratings keep going down.
