Democrats are starting to embrace the idea of disbanding ICE as a campaign talking point. They have no idea how insane this sounds to a majority of average Americans. Kirsten Gillibrand said this week on CNN.

Gillibrand Calls to Disband ICE: It’s a ‘Deportation Force’
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D., N.Y.) called Thursday night to disband U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
CNN host Chris Cuomo asked Gillibrand about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who beat incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley (D., N.Y.) in the 14th Congressional District primary, and her controversial position to disband the law enforcement agency.
“She’s also got some positions that are even to the left of Bernie Sanders. She wants to get rid of ICE,” Cuomo said. “Now, what are you going to do with your party if you do come into a majority and you have a significant number, or at least an influence of people who have that kind of a position?”
“Well, I agree with it. I don’t think ICE today is working as intended,” Gillibrand said…
“I believe that it has become a deportation force and I think you should separate out the criminal justice from the immigration issues and I think you should reimagine ICE under a new agency with a very different mission and take those two missions out,” Gillibrand said.
