Liberal Hypocrisy Unleashed
California Senator Kamala Harris, appearing on MSNBC Monday said,” I think there’s no question that we’ve got to critically re-examine ICE and its role and the way that it is being administered and the work it is doing. And we need to probably think about starting from scratch.”
Senator Harris has called for changes to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), including “starting from scratch.” In late June, Harris accused the Trump Administration of “crimes against humanity” for separating the children of illegal immigrants from their parents when their parents were detained for illegally crossing the border, saying, “This is outrageous. This is clearly a crime against humanity that is being committed by the United States government and we have to stop it.”
The White House responded to Harris’ attack on ICE Tweeting, Senator Harris, why are you supporting the animals of MS-13? You must not know what ICE really does. The purpose of ICE is to remove public safety threats, such as convicted criminal aliens and gang members, as well as individuals who have violated our nation’s immigration laws, including those who illegally re-entered the country after being removed and immigration fugitives ordered removed by federal immigration judge.
Harris huffily responded: As a career prosecutor, I actually went after gangs and transnational criminal organizations. That’s being a leader on public safety. What is not, is ripping babies from their mothers.
Daily Wire Editor-in Chief Ben Shapiro tweeted Harris back with this question, “When you arrested them for crimes, did you separate their children from them”?
