Harris: We Need to Reexamine ICE, Start Over from Scratch

"Their mission, I think, is very much in question, and it has to be reexamined," Sen. Kamala Harris said when asked if ICE should be abolished.

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) said the U.S. must reexamine its mission for the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency and should probably start over from scratch during an interview with MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt on Sunday.

Hunt asked Harris if she agrees that ICE needs to be abolished, a position that many protestors of President Trump’s immigration policy have taken in recent weeks.

“Listen, I think there’s no question that we’ve got to critically reexamine ICE and its role and the way that it is being administered and the work it is doing, and we need to probably think about starting from scratch because there’s a lot that is wrong with the way that it’s conducting itself, and we need to deal with that,” Harris said.

Hunt then asked Harris what she thinks the alternative to ICE should be.

“Well, first of all, I don’t think that the government should be in the … position of separating families, and that is clearly what is part of what’s happening at ICE and DHS. You look at what’s happening again in terms of how they’re conducting their perspective on asylum seekers,” Harris said. “So, their mission, I think, is very much in question, and it has to be reexamined.”
