CNN Admits Democrats Are Making A “Massive” Mistake For Wanting To Abolish ICE!

By

CNN’s political analyst said the democrats are making a “massive” mistake wanting to abolish ICE. The analyst said the desire to abolish ICE illustrates the divide between the established democrats and new ones.

“Democrats are making a massive political mistake by calling for the end of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE),” declared Julian Zelizer, a political analyst for CNN and a history and public affairs professor at Princeton University.

While Zelizer unsurprisingly expressed support for abolishing ICE, claiming it may be “the best policy decision,” he acknowledged the campaign “carries enormous short-term political risks for the Democrats going into the midterm elections.”

“With Democrats attacking ICE, the administration has been given an opening to paint its opponents as extreme, radical and a threat to national security,” he added. “Even though we are long overdue for a rigorous debate over our immigration system, a call to abolish anything makes it sound as if the proponents want the entire system to go away.”

Bill Scher, a contributing editor to Politico Magazine, went so far as to declare the “Abolish ICE” campaign a “cudgel” to divide the Democratic party and enable its take-over by the insurgent far-left.

“The reality is ‘Abolish ICE’ is not so much a policy proposal as a fresh cudgel to divide the Democratic Party between ‘Establishment’ politicians and left-wing insurgents,” he said. “Anyone with the temerity to take a breath and think through the practical consequences of such a slapdash idea gets tagged with a scarlet ‘E,’ as was Crowley.”
