Rep. Mark Pocan, a Democrat lawmaker from Wisconsin, has seemingly leapt head first into the deep end of insanity by making egregious comments about the Trump administration and by also calling for ICE to be abolished.
As you can see, this is a man who does not care about the danger posed by illegals entering our country, not recognizing that many who are now crossing over have criminal records and are working for cartels who are looking for ways to push their drugs into the American marketplace.
No one wants to see families separated and that is an issue that needs dealt with. However, you don’t simply toss out your immigration system and enforcement because of one issue that can be fixed with a stroke of the pen.
Citing current events and a recent raid at a Tennessee meatpacking plant, U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Wis., says he plans to file legislation this week to abolish the agency.
“During my trip to the southern border, it was clear that ICE, and its actions of hunting down and tearing apart families, has wreaked havoc on far too many people. From conducting raids at garden centers and meatpacking plants, to breaking up families at churches and schools, ICE is tearing apart families and ripping at the moral fabric of our nation,” Pocan said.
Pocan also targeted President Donald Trump and his staff, accusing them of being “white nationalists” and using ICE as a tool.
.@realDonaldTrump & his team of white nationalists, including Stephen Miller, have so misused @ICEgov that the agency can no longer accomplish its goals effectively. I’m introducing a bill to #AbolishICE & crack down on the agency’s blanket directive to target & round up people. pic.twitter.com/xhHsOHCdNH

Here’s Pocan’s full statement:
“During my trip to the southern border, it was clear that ICE, and its actions of hunting down and tearing apart families, has wreaked havoc on far too many people. From conducting raids at garden centers and meatpacking plants, to breaking up families at churches and schools, ICE is tearing apart families and ripping at the moral fabric of our nation. Unfortunately, President Trump and his team of white nationalists, including Stephen Miller, have so misused ICE that the agency can no longer accomplish its goals effectively,” said Pocan.
“I’m introducing legislation that would abolish ICE and crack down on the agency’s blanket directive to target and round up individuals and families,” continued Pocan. “The heartless actions of this abused agency do not represent the values of our nation and the U.S. must develop a more humane immigration system, one that treats every person with dignity and respect.”
Pocan’s legislation would dismantle ICE and create a commission to provide recommendations to Congress on how the U.S. government can implement a humane immigration enforcement system that upholds the dignity of all individuals, while transferring necessary functions to other agencies.”
The left keeps using terms like “white nationalist” to describe anyone who thinks that we should have laws keeping non-citizens out of our country, but obviously, this is not what the term actually means.
Changing the definition of terms is part of the progressive strategy for pushing their agenda down the throats of Americans, so it’s imperative folks know and understand the true definition of terms when engaging in discussion with those of another worldview.
Trump is not an adherent of white nationalism. He’s simply a man doing his job to enforce the laws of a country and preserve its resources. This isn’t hatred against Mexican people. Our laws apply to all non-citizens, regardless of their skin color.
Unfortunately, the left doesn’t grasp this.
