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.
