Immigration & Customs Enforcement—more commonly known as ICE, is a law enforcement agency of the federal government of the U.S. tasked to enforce the immigration laws of the United States & to investigate criminal and terrorist activity of foreign nationals residing in the U.S.
ℹ️ICE has two primary components: Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO). It is an agency under the jurisdiction of Homeland Security and was established in 2003 following the 9/11 tragedy.…
ICE was designed to keep us safe from terrorists—for instance, the terrorists who took over the planes on 9/11 were living undetected in the U.S. for over a year.

Pls read this thoroughly before commenting. The Trump administration has corrupted this agency to do horrific acts.

1-The evening of the 22nd of June, Miss #SarahSanders (#WH press secretary) went for dinner with her family to this little place called ‘The Red Hen’. It seems that she was unceremoniously kicked out &harassed some more all the way across the street to the next restaurant
2-It seems somehow this incident has created some sort of mob-mentality wanting to harass Miss Sanders that has gotten to a point in which she now needs protection.……
3-What kind of person chases somebody down the street based solely on political opinions?
If u ever worked in a restaurant, u learn quickly that u have to deal with a lot of assholes &people you don’t like. You smile, curse them inwardly &hope you’ll never have to see them again

Let's get some facts straight about MS-13 because it's looking more and more like Republicans will use this as their central campaign issue in the 2018 election. And they're going to use despicable attack ads to do it. So, batten down the hatches!

First of all, detection of MS-13 gang members amounted to 0.075% of migrants coming from Central America in FY2017.

Lawfareblog: "This is far from the 'infestation' of violent gang members described by the president."…
💥MS-13 gang was founded in Los Angeles.

Alexander Acosta, Trump's Secretary of Labor, has ties to Charles Koch through
George Mason University School of Law. This is only one of many cabinet positions and heads of agencies that are Koch'd-up in Trump's administration. #UnKochAmerica…
But do you know what else Acosta is mixed up in?
Jeffrey Epstein's "sweetheart deal" (Trump: "terrific guy") i.e. light sentence he received in a #Florida court battle over allegations that he sexually abused more than 40 minor girls, most of them between the ages of 13-17.

1. I remember when you angry #Trumpkins stormed into #Republican Party; called #Conservatives “cucks”, “leftists”, “Killary voters”, “libtards”. You idolized #Trump in a cultic way. You fraternized with alt right #racists. You winked at #sexism. ->

2. You said #Conservative principles didn’t really matter, though you really couldn’t tell us what #Conservatism means. Of course, your leader didn’t know either; his attempts to articulate it were painful. You mocked our efforts to explain. ->

3. #Trump wild swings of rhetoric, positions, moods didn’t bother any of you. Whatever Trump said last was best & most true, no matter the word salad in which it was presented. His blatant self-contradictions were obvious to all but to you. ->

First of all, @RalphNortham comfortably won the Governorship with 53.7% to Ed Gillespie’s 45.1%. Kudos to him, we are so happy to have you as Governor! And kudos to his primary challenger, @tomperriello for working so hard to get Northam elected. Very inspiring
Then, congratulations to @fairfaxforlg for winning the Lt Gov race against “vaginal ultrasound” Jill Vogel! Justin Fairfax is the second Black person to win in statewide office in #Virginia. 👏🎉🎉
