Many Democrats have been calling for an end to ICE in recent months. But during his rally in El Paso, Texas on Monday night, Trump said that is not going to happen.

President Donald Trump: I Will Never Abolish ICE
President Donald Trump bashed the “radical left” for calls to abolish ICE at Monday night’s MAGA rally in El Paso, Texas, promising, “I will never abolish…ICE.”
The president pointed to calls from the radical left to abolish U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). “Slashing ICE detention is the first step of many for the far left, I call them the radical left,” said president Trump. “We will never abolish ICE. They want to abolish ICE. We’re never going to abolish ICE.”
“Let me state very clearly to those pushing this ridiculous and radical agenda: I will never sign a bill that forces the mass release of violent criminals into our country,” said Trump.
“I will never abolish or in any way mistreat our great heroes from ICE and Border Patrol and law enforcement. Never,” president Trump affirmed. “We will always stand with those brave men and women. We’ll always be with them. We’re going to take care of them just like they take care of us. Remember that.”
