It seems as if the news gets more bizarre by the day.
By now, we’ve all heard about Trump’s children separation policy and how the hardcore right-wingers such as Ann Coulter and Laura Ingraham were actually backing the idea, cheer-leading for Trump.
Well now, we have a new twist folks.
There seems to be a lot of tension within one of Trump’s most notorious agencies.
According to The Hill, more than a dozen U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) special agents have signed a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen calling to eliminate ICE and shift its work to another bureau.
At least 19 ICE investigators signed the letter to Nielsen, saying they were concerned that the Trump administration’s crackdown on immigration was preventing them from carrying out the agency’s other duties.
ICE agents “have been perceived as targeting undocumented aliens, instead of the transnational criminal organizations that facilitate cross border crimes impacting our communities and national security,” the letter states.
You read that right folks, Trump’s own ICE agents believe that Trump is going overboard on his immigration policies toward undocumented immigrants. So much so, in fact, that ICE agents don’t have the time or resources to go after criminal organizations that actually do real harm.
This mutiny within ICE shows just how rotten Trump’s policies really are. When members of an agency publicly come out like this against the sitting President, it’s never a good sign for the health of a democracy.
Trump is clearly going overboard with his policies, and his direction is so misguided that federal workers have no chance but to rebel against the immorality of Trump’s character.
Make no mistake about it, as worrying as this is, we have to show our support for these brave ICE agents. What they are doing takes not only a massive amount of courage, but it shows that they simply cannot go against their morals anymore.
Rep. Mark Pocan (D-Wis.) last week introduced a bill to eliminate ICE, so if we want to get rid of this atrocious agency once and for all, now is the time to strike!
It’s a crazy political climate we’re currently living in. We have Trump as President making all kinds of braindead and (sadly) immoral moves in an effort to destroy the very fabric of America’s moral character. But it looks and feels like people are finally saying enough is enough… and it’s about time.
When members of your own agency are saying you’ve gone too far, it really is time to look yourself in the mirror. Sadly, we all know Trump won’t do that, and even if he does it would only to stroke his own ego.
But people are waking up, they really are. They’re finally starting to realize what’s been happening to our country.
