A group of Democrats who introduced legislation to abolish U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) said they will vote against the measure if GOP leadership follows through with their vow to bring it to the House floor.
Reps. Mark Pocan (D-Wis.), Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) and Adriano Espaillat(D-N.Y.) released a statement Thursday accusing GOP leaders of exploiting the legislation for political gain after leadership confirmed it planned to hold a vote.
While the Democratic lawmakers said they plan to vote against their own measure – which would create a commission to examine ICE’s responsibilities and then recommend transferring them to other agencies – they said they welcome the opportunity for debate.
So some lefty politicians, led my Wisconsin’s own Mark Pocan, jump on the radical bandwagon and submit a bill to abolish ICE. When the leadership says, “OK, cool… let’s have a vote,” those same lefty politicians cry foul and vow to vote against their own bill, thus proving that they were just posturing.
On the bright side, I guess I’m happy that they aren’t actually stupid enough to abolish ICE.
Bunch of fools.
Pretty harsh words from a guy that thinks the earth is only 6000 years old. Nobody here has ever defended you on that doozy,
More anti-religious bigotry from the geriatric troll. Go back to gumming dinner, Boomer scum.
Again that was harsh?
Somebody says they are going to do something stupid, then they vote on stupid, then most of the stupid realizes it’s is really stupid and wimp out from doing stupid….what else would you call this group that would be nicer than a “bunch of fools” without being dishonest about stupidity?
Vote for it and they admit they are trying to destroy the country.
Vote against it and the Democrats just admitted they are using congress to aid in fomenting pointless protests in an attempt to foul up the current administration.
In an attempt to have blood flowing on the streets. Their undying hope is that another Charlottesville occurs and “innocent” Left-o-Scum gets hurt. Good television makes for votes.
Brave Sir Pocan…
“I’m proposing legislation to abolish the agency. Specifically, my bill would dissolve ICE within six months… By voting to abolish ICE, Congress can help countless terrified families experiencing abuse at the hands of this rogue agency breathe a sigh of relief, while making our country safer from actual threats.- Pocan, July 2
RUN AWAY! RUN AWAY!
“If Speaker Ryan puts our bill on the floor, we plan to vote no..” – statement from bill authors Reps. Mark Pocan (D., Wis.), Pramila Jayapal (D., Wash.) and Adriano Espaillat (D., N.Y.) , July 12.
Those quotes might be funniest thing ever!
What a dysfunctional, confused, pile of dung Pocan has turned into.
K, your assessment of Pocan is wrong.
He always WAS a dysfunctional, confused, pile of dung. That’s just by virtue of being a Jackass Party member. Besides that, he has an intrinsic disorder; for this reason, we pray for him.
You are probably right. I like to assume the best, but have no evidence he was not dysfunctional sometime in the past.
I blame my unbridled optimism that not all liberals have been this dumb all the time.
