Democrats Introduce Bill to Abolish ICE — Illegal Immigrants Rejoice!


Democrats in Congress are introducing a bill that would abolish the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE).

Comprised of eight members appointed by Congress, plus nine members from “major civil society and immigrants’ rights organizations and individuals directly impacted by ICE practices, “The legislation would give the government one year to dismantle ICE and create a bipartisan group to build a replacement,” the Washington Post reports.

The bill, introduced by Rep. Mark Pocan (D-WI) and co-sponsored by Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) and Rep. Adriano Espaillat (D-NY), also gives the bipartisan group direction to launch an investigation into ICE activities, looking to discover any “failures to comply with congressional oversight requirements, violations of constitutional protections and U.S. laws, failures to comply with agency policies and directives, violations of human rights, and any other longstanding patterns of medical neglect, solitary confinement, wrongful death, and other abuses for which ICE is wholly or partially responsible,” according to the report.
