A vulnerable Democrat Senator has been covering up his support for the “Abolish ICE” movement. Breitbart reports:
Indiana’s incumbent Democratic Senator tells Hoosiers that he supports immigration enforcement, but he voted in February to abolish ICE enforcement throughout the United States.
The pro-ICE claim is central to one of Sen. Joe Donnelly’s campaign ads, whose announcer declares “The radical left wants to eliminate ICE,” as an image shows the “Abolish ICE” slogan. Donnelly then appears on the ad saying: “I support ICE [and] funding President Trump’s border wall.”
But Donnelly voted in February 2018 to block ICE’s enforcement against millions of illegal migrants who hold jobs, and he is a co-sponsor of legislation proposed by California Sen. Dianne Feinstein which would require border officials to keep a catch-and-release loophole for the job-seeking migrants who bring children up to the border.
In a February 2018 immigration debate, Donnelly voted for an amendment which told ICE to not deport migrants who had arrived in the United States before June 30, 2018. The amendment effectively invited the cartels to traffic many illegals into the country before July and would have also provided legal cover to all illegals holding jobs in Indiana and the 49 other states.
If Hoosiers learn of this, will he be able to win reelection?
