house Bill H. Res. 990

Should the House Express Support For ICE Personnel?

Argument in favor

ICE officers and personnel put their lives on the line each day to apprehend criminal unauthorized immigrants and stop the flow of illegal drugs across the border. This resolution is right to express support for them, and to push back on calls to abolish ICE.

Why is it even a question to support those that protect us and our families? Yes sometimes that protection means making decisions not everyone likes. Their jobs are under appreciated and I thank God for them every day. Leave them alone and let them do their jobs. If you don’t like it feel free to cross the border to Mexico. See what happens to you....

Argument opposed

ICE has been carrying out the administration’s policy of separating unauthorized immigrant children and should be abolished. Alternatively, ICE is imperfect but should kept and this resolution is nothing more than political posturing.

Abolishing ICE is not a personal attack on our brave men and women who serve in law enforcement, it is an acknowledgement of a system that is dysfunctional and harmful. Good men and women struggle to do their job when the system they work in is broken. Abolish ICE, fix the system, and let our men and women do the job they are capable of doing.

Political grandstanding. Even ICE personnel don’t support ICE anymore. ICE is a post-9/11 fear reaction that’s gone on too long. We were fine before it and we will be fine again without it.

No, the American Gestapo knows what they're doing is wrong. They are acting out the racist ideals of the Trump regime, and they deserve all the censure that such actions deserve. They are acting like Nazis, and rounding up brown skinned citizens to throw into their detention camps without legal cause, and they should be abolished completely, and at once.

    More expressing. Can they actually ever accomplish something. ICE wasn’t a bad thing till Trump directed them to violate human rights. More wasted bills instead of action. Vote Blue in November.

    I cannot express support for the separation and imprisonment of children. It is wholly unacceptable and un-American, and regardless of who ordered such a horrible act, the order must be ignored. To say “I was following orders” is to repeat the mistakes made by the German soldiers of Hitlers’ Reich.

    ICE needs to be defunded AND PROSECUTED for their recent treatment of children and families at our southern border.

    Nope. Nor should they express support for soldiers who simply followed orders in Germany in the late 30s/early 40s.

    Yes they should express support even though it’s only a declaration. All Republicans and as many Democrats who have the courage to buck their party should join us in showing ICE that we have their backs literally not just figuratively. I ask any and all stand up for those who protect us each day of the year. #MAGA and God bless them.

    Absolutely! The house and senate, really ANY AND ALL MEMBERS OF GOVERNMENT should show support for ICE. Without them, those criminals and deadly drugs like fentanyl(carfentanyl) would still be on our streets. ICE does an amazing job at keeping AMERICANS safe! I only wish that our CIA, FBI and NSA would be doing as good of a job instead of constantly data mining to the point they can’t single out a legit threat and certain branches being politicized (which they should not be at all) to the point of conspiring against a sitting president. SHOW SUPPORT FOR AND ACKNOWLEDGE ICE! KEEP ICE WHERE THEY ARE AND ABOLISH THE MOVE FOR ABOLISHMENT!

    There are good ICE officers and some willing to behave cruelly and cold heartedly. To give a blanket approval of ICE sends the wrong message to the wrong doers and will give them a license to behaves in even more inappropriate ways.

    No. You should be calling for immediate investigation of their tactics and ethics seems like the employees have gone wild from all reports initially.

    Absolutely! They need to be supported so they can properly do their job! They need a proper wall, equipment, and personnel to protect us at the border from illegal entry, drugs, guns, and sex traffickers.

    Laws are NOT and should never be optional. If you feel a law is "unfair" or "discriminatory" work to change the law. Civil disobedience is respected *because* those who practice it accept the legal consequences of acting their conscience, "civil disobedience" while demanding no consequences is little more than spoiled children stomping their feet and hollering "it's not fair!".
