A U.S. Senator from Virginia spoke at a “Families Belong Together” rally in Richmond, VA where protestors vocally called for the abolition of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
“The President thought he could separate kids from their parents, and the American public wouldn’t care” said Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) to protestors. “That’s the only reason he did it. He thought they wouldn’t care. But the President realized that America has a moral gag reflex and we are revolted by his decision.”
It is well established that the current border policy has been in place since at least the Bush administration. The faux-outrage is a tired routine, but somebody has to play Senator. Watch the full clip here. Speaking of gag reflexes, the clip is pretty cringeworthy.
More importantly than the Senator’s dog-and-pony show is the fact that protestors at this event were in completely in favor abolishing ICE.
Watch, starting at minute 29 where they begin their chant:
“Take home this message,” the speaker said at the closing of the rally. “We will abolish ICE together. We will free these families together. But only if each of us does our part of the work. So let’s close on an ‘Abolish ICE’ chant and then head home.”
The protestors proceeded with the chant.
We know that the lawless left hates ICE, and even protests the organization when it arrests child sex traffickers. Why put pedophiles in jail when America could have open borders instead? But abolishing ICE used to be a relatively fringe opinion. It was agreed upon, until recently, that we had to have some kind of security at the border.
President Trump has driven the political left so mad that they only way they can seem to react is by moving further left. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) called for the abolishment of ICE just last week.
Big League Politics reached out to Kaine’s office to see if they still held a sane position on the issue, but received no response.
Kaine and his ilk in the mainstream media have been unkind to Kaine’s opponent, Corey Stewart, in the ongoing U.S. Senate race.
Stewart’s past association with a politician who made anti-Semitic remarks long after the two were friendly has been treated like a scarlet letter. Chris Cuomo chided Stewart for not “denouncing the extremism on [the political right]” during a CNN interview, which is both ridiculous and factually inaccurate.
If Kaine is to be judged by the same standard – the company he keeps – is it safe to assume that he wants ICE abolished, just like the protestors he rallied with? Is his failure to denounce them a de facto agreement with their views?
Playing by the rules of the left, perhaps it should be considered that way.

Greyhound Gives Amnesty to Illegal Immigrant Riders, Bans Immigration Checks on Their Buses
They have caved to the leftists.
Greyhound has announced that they will not permit immigration checks on their buses any longer, effectively giving amnesty for illegals who are using their services to evade ICE and federal enforcement.
“Our primary concern is the safety of our customers and team members, and we are confident these changes will lead to an improved experience for all parties involved,” the company said. “We plan to begin the implementation of these changes immediately.”
Previously, Greyhound had allowed U.S. Customs and Border Protection to come aboard their buses and perform immigration checks. Far-left groups like the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) had criticized their policy, saying it harmed the constitutional rights of the individuals in the country illegally.
“We are pleased to see Greyhound clearly communicate that it does not consent to racial profiling and harassment on its buses,” said Andrea Flores, who works as the deputy director of policy for the ACLU’s Equality Division, to the AP. “By protecting its customers and employees, Greyhound is sending a message that it prioritizes the communities it serves.”
Liberal state attorney generals had threatened Greyhound with lawsuits if they kept allowing immigration enforcement on their buses. Far-left Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson is thrilled that his threats made the company capitulate.
“Today’s announcement from Greyhound confirms what should have been obvious to the company since I contacted them a year ago – it has both the power and the responsibility to stand up for its customers, who suffered for far too long from Greyhound’s indifference to CBP’s suspicion-less bus raids and harassment,” Ferguson said in his statement responding to the change in Greyhound’s policy.
President Trump had changed a policy from the Obama administration that relaxed enforcement of immigration law due to concerns over “racial profiling.” Under Obama, agents were forced to stay away from train and bus stations, which are common hubs for illegals, unless they found “actionable intelligence” about an alien, and their actions had to be directly approved from Border Patrol headquarters in Washington, D.C.
Trump gave immigration officers more discretion to enforce the law in order to remedy the national emergency that has resulted from the border being flooded by waves of third-world migrants.
“The U.S. Border Patrol conducts regular outreach with transportation companies to foster good working relationships,” the Border Patrol said in a statement earlier this month.
Left-wing groups will stop at nothing to replace Americans with third-world foreigners who will vote Democrat and usher in a new era of socialism. It may be time for these subversive, anti-American entities to lose their tax-exempt status, or be ejected from the country, like Hungary Prime Minister Viktor Orban did with the Soros network in his nation.
