Meuser for Congress Releases Statement Supporting ICE

POTTSVILLE– The Meuser for Congress campaign released the following statement reiterating his support U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and their agents and denounced increased calls from the liberal leftists to abolish ICE.

“There is a growing movement among the liberal left to demand the elimination of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Border Patrol. This has gone from being whispered amongst the radical left to be a key campaign plank for Democratic candidates across the country. I think that is an irresponsible and dangerous position,” Meuser said. “Those supporting this policy are saying that we will have no borders, you can ignore our laws and stay in our country as long as you like. By taking this position, they are saying that dangerous gangs like MS-13 are welcome to come here to commit crimes and put legal American lives in jeopardy.
