McCarthy Blasts ‘Socialist Democratic Party’ for Wanting to Abolish ICE

"And for those who gave their lives for us—I will stand with them. Even when it means standing against the new socialist Democratic Party."

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) blasted Democrats for introducing legislation to abolish the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency during a speech on the House floor on Wednesday.

“Mr. Speaker, last week Democrats introduced a bill to abolish ICE—that’s the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. I think we should first review that agency’s record,” McCarthy said. “As it turns out, ICE agents are on the frontlines in the battle against crime. In 2016, they arrested nearly 2,000 human traffickers—criminals who are involved in modern-day slavery. Democrats wanted to abolish that.”

McCarthy then attacked Democrats for voting no on the legislation, despite having co-sponsored it.

“They wanted the glory of introducing a far-left bill—but they didn’t have the guts to accept the consequences,” McCarthy said. “That’s the kind of leadership the Democrats have to offer.”

“And Mr. Speaker, I admit I’m confused listening to the Democratic leadership,” McCarthy said before attacking House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for telling members to vote “whatever” on the legislation.

“Mr. Speaker, I’m confused. I understand there’s this growing socialist movement in the Democratic Party. But when does this socialist, new Democratic Party believe we should have no borders? I guess they do today,” McCarthy said.

“That is why I am happy to offer Congressman Higgins’ resolution and to stand with the men and women of ICE, because I want a safer America,” McCarthy said. “And for those who gave their lives for us—I will stand with them. Even when it means standing against the new socialist Democratic Party.”
