U.S. Immigration Customs and Enforcement officials on Aug. 14 arrested and deported an illegal immigrant who is wanted in El Salvador on murder charges.
Brian Alejandro Martinez reportedly had been arrested and freed several times in New Jersey and New York. ICE officials criticized authorities in Middlesex County, New Jersey, for releasing Martinez without notifying the federal agency.
While Immigration and Customs Enforcement in recent years has had to contend with “sanctuary” policies by cities and counties that protect illegal immigrants, the agency now faces a push by some in Congress to abolish it.
President Donald Trump is scheduled to honor ICE agents Monday at a White House event, even as many congressional Democrats call for restraining or ending the agency that enforces immigration law throughout the nation’s interior.
The House adopted a resolution last month supporting ICE agents, but 167 Democrats refused to vote for it.

You know what I know about ICE?

They are indiscriminately deporting innocent (non-criminal) fathers and mothers, and leaving children homeless or motherless or fatherless. Tons of upstanding, productive people are being ripped away from their homes and families.

And for WHAT? So Trump can look tough, and impress his racist base.

What the he-- is happening to America?
