While the far-left clamored to completely abolish ICE, a number of Democrats claimed that this wasn’t a serious policy proposal of theirs and they wouldn’t do it if they had the opportunity. Like much of the rhetoric coming from President Biden and his Administration, this too appears to be false.
The Washington Post published a story yesterday revealing that the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, “is preparing to issue new guidelines to agents this week that could sharply curb arrests and deportations.”:

This will prevent the federal government from taking action to enforce the law and secure our borders. It will only encourage more illegal immigration and move away from the successful border security policies of the previous Administration. Depriving ICE of the tools and ability to effectively do their job may not be abolishing them in theory, but it is in practice, and it will make our country less safe as a result.
