Bernie Sanders Doesn’t Think ICE Should Do Their Job

2020 presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders declared on CBS’s Face the Nation that is “not appropriate” to deport illegal aliens who have broken American immigration laws.

In response to President Trump’s announcement to crack down on illegal immigration, which entails ICE deporting “millions of illegal aliens”, Sanders pushed back against Trump’s suggestion for stronger enforcement.

Margaret Brennan asked Sanders, “There are ICE raids set to start Sunday morning. Estimates of some 2000 people or so who will be targeted, is this appropriate?”

Sanders then responded, “No, it’s not. It is absolutely not appropriate.”

Brennan poked and prodded Sanders even further:

Specifically on this point, the 2,000 who are supposed to be targeted haven’t should be up for court dates. , they’re not following the asylum process, the legal standard when they’re here. So, should they be prosecuted? Should they be deported?

Sanders pushed back, saying, “I don’t like this deportation thing at all, and I think Trump uses this as a beginning to do worse things to come.”

However, Trump decided to not go through with the raids on Saturday, stating,”I want to give the Democrats every last chance to quickly negotiate simple changes to Asylum and Loopholes.”

He continued:

This will fix the Southern Border, together with the help that Mexico is now giving us. Probably won’t happen, but worth a try. Two weeks and big Deportation begins!

It was later uncovered that the raids might have been pulled back because of leaks originating from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

A Trump administration official commented on this leak:

Leaking the locations and details to stop the operation from happening not only harmed operational integrity, but it put the safety and well-being of his own officers in jeopardy.

The same official added:

The ICE mission is enforcing the nation’s laws and ensuring those who are unlawfully present in the country are removed if ordered by a judge; this will leave an un-erasable mark on his tenure.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez offered her own comments on this immigration drama.

In a tweet, she warned illegal immigrants to watch out for ICE raids across the country.

Warning: The Trump admin is expected to begin ICE raids across the country TOMORROW, targeting people for round up.

As the 2020 elections rapidly approach, we can expect the Left to dial up immigration demagoguery and continue pushing for uncontrolled mass migration.
