Lots of Democrats are saying they want to abolish ICE. It has become a rallying cry for the far left. Yet when DNC chair Tom Perez was asked about it on MSNBC, he refused to give a straight answer.
The Daily Caller reports:
DNC CHAIR DODGES ABOLISH ICE QUESTION
Chairman of the Democratic National Committee Tom Perez dodged the question of whether or not the the U.S. should abolish ICE Friday on MSNBC.
“There’s been calls to end, obviously the family separation policy,” said host Chris Hayes. “There have also been calls to abolish ICE. There’s legislation that’s been introduced by members of Congress, some Democratic Senators have endorsed that position as others, do you think we should abolish ICE?”
Perez did not directly answer and instead deflected the question by saying, “We should defeat Donald Trump.”
“Wait, did you just say we should abolish Donald Trump?” Hayes responded.
Perez did not acknowledge the comment and went on to say Trump has a “tolerance for total ethical lapses,” focusing on the EPA and HHS.
“The administration has set the tone,” Perez said.

Why is Perez so reluctant to say what so many supporters of his party believe? Is it because he knows this is a losing issue for Democrats?
