WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) issued the following statement today about the radical push by some Democratic leaders to abolish the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE):

“Democrats who are pushing to eliminate ICE must be living in a fantasy world.  They’ve forgotten the horror of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.  They pretend that violent drug cartel members aren’t intent on crossing our border and turning our daily lives into bloody nightmares,” said Sen. Kennedy.  “ICE just helped secure the lengthy prison sentence of a drug cartel leader whose organization tortured and murdered 12 Mexican law enforcement officers.  The ridiculous push to eliminate ICE dishonors those who have died in cross border violence and the officers who have sacrificed their lives guarding the U.S. border.  Radical Democrats and Democratic leadership are playing high stakes, political poker with the safety of American families.”
