ICE Union Backs Trump for President
The union representing the nation’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers and staff is throwing its support behind GOP nominee Donald Trump. It’s the first time ever that the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council has endorsed a candidate for president. ICE officers are responsible for interior enforcement of immigration laws within the United States.
The President of the National ICE Council, Chris Crane, issued the following statement on the union’s endorsement of Donald J. Trump:
Donald Trump reached out to us for a meeting, sat down with me to discuss his goals for enforcement, and pledged to support ICE officers, our nation’s laws and our members. In his immigration policy, he has outlined core policies needed to restore immigration security — including support for increased interior enforcement and border security, an end to Sanctuary Cities, an end to catch-and-release, mandatory detainers, and the canceling of executive amnesty and non-enforcement directives.
The ICE union further states that Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton supports furthering “amnesty” and is pushing a “radical” immigration plan that will lead to the loss of thousands of lives.
Trump has consistently called for the construction of a wall between Mexico and the U.S. and demanded that Mexico pay for it, has called Mexicans rapists and criminals and has pushed a hardline immigration stance against Muslims.
Trump’s actual immigration plan with respect to illegal immigrants has been somewhat less clear. He has said that there won’t be amnesty for illegal immigrants living in the U.S., but has also said he’s willing to “work with” undocumented immigrants.
IT’S WAR THEN!
