A Senator from New York doubled down on the outrageous idea of abolishing Immigration Customs and Enforcement at a music festival on Sunday.

“So when we flip the House and flip the Senate, I think the first thing we should do is deal with the children who have been separated from their families at the border,” said Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY). “I think we should get rid of ICE.”

Gillibrand shared the stage with political heavyweights Chelsea Handler and The Young Turks host Ana Kasparian, who moderated the discussion.

“These are civil issues, these are families, look at it as the economic engine that it is, that immigration is our strength, our diversity is what makes our country and our economy so strong,” Gillibrand said.

She also hit on the same old gun control talking points that Democrats have hammered home religiously.

“I think we should pass the gun reform issues within the first month — all of them. Universal background checks, anti-trafficking, making sure people can’t buy bump stocks, large magazine clips, all that work,” she said.

President Trump Announces Planned Ban on Chinese-Owned TikTok App

The app has serious spying concerns.

President Donald Trump announced that he’s preparing to ban the video app TikTok on national security grounds on Friday, citing the concerns over the Chinese app’s connections to Chinese government security, and the potential use of the nominally innocent app to surveil American citizens.

The President had made the announcement on an Air Force One flight to the press pool, later confirming that the media could report on the policy move on the record.

As far as TikTok is concerned, we’re banning them from the United States,” said the President bluntly.

TikTok is a viral video app marketed to teenagers and young adults that allows users to create short and edited videos. It’s frequently used for memes, pranks, and simple political content. It’s owned by Chinese company ByteDance, which is obligated to cooperate with Chinese intelligence services under the laws of China.

There are genuine surveillance and data-mining concerns with TikTok, but it’s also probably worth considering that banning the app will allow neoliberal tech monopolies such as Facebook and Apple to share up an even larger share of the demand for platforms designed for similar content.
