Ilhan Omar Responds to Trump Immigration Plan by Calling for U.S. To Abolish ICE, Halt Deportations

‘End all inhumane deportation and detention programs’
By Grabien Staff


OMAR: “We should be welcoming immigrants into our country and providing them a simple and accessible path to becoming documented, not treating them like criminals or dehumanizing them by calling them animals. So, what are we asking for? What we're asking for is very simple. We need to make sure that we cut and now put increases on spending on detention facilities. We need to stop using DHS as a slush fund. We need to abolish ICE and end all inhumane deportation and detention programs. We need to fight back against the criminalization of immigrants and those crossing the border. We need to create a fair and accessible path to legal status and citizenship for all undocumented people in the United States. And we need to pass a clean DREAM Act."
