senate Bill S. 2151

Should ICE & CBP Officers Be Prohibited From Wearing Clothing With the Word 'Police'?

Argument in favor

Federal immigration officers aren’t police, so shouldn’t be allowed to identify themselves as such on their gear. This is especially important now in light of cases of ICE officers using the ruse of being police officers to gain entry to suspected unauthorized immigrants’ homes and subsequently arresting people who otherwise wouldn’t have let them in.

Yes, ICE and Immigration should not be allowed to use Police on their uniforms. It is deceptive and they do not have the power of police, even though they try to make immigrants who do not know our laws think they have that ultimate power.

Yes, they are not ‘police’ and have apparently used the ‘police’ label to illegally impersonate police by so stating to enable improper, uninvited entry; to shotgun interrogate residents without any ‘probable cause’. This is illegal and is an improper use of their authority. They abused the ‘title’ on their uniform and must at least be held accountable for that. Remove the title.

Their assumed authority is false and anything legitimizing it needs to be removed.

Argument opposed

ICE and CBP officers use “police” as a universal language for identifying themselves as law enforcement. This helps prevent confusion as to who they are, which is good for both the officers and the people they’re attempting to apprehend.

I swear these bills get stupider and stupider by the day. Their job is to enforce immigration law. They are technically police.

    The use of “POLICE” is easily misused, especially in non-police actions. It simply should not be allowed.

    They are not police. They don’t have the powers of police or the appropriate training of police. The only federal level enforcement that have that kind of position are the US Marshals. US Marshals can wear uniforms that say police, but ICE ARE NOT POLICE!

    Yes. I’m trying to be helpful but if I wear a police uniform I’m breaking the law. So, anyone that’s not police and they are wearing a uniform with police on it is breaking the law by impersonating a police officer. Whether they are trying to be helpful or not it gives the wrong information to those dealing with them.

    It is intentionally misleading to put "police" on the uniforms if ICE operatives.

    They are most certainly not police and should not wear clothing or anything else identifying them as such. Please rid us of this Trump and his gestapo.

    Yes, they are law enforcement, HOWEVER, they are not ordinary police officers. It is deceptive and is used to gain entry to homes of immigrants who live there. For example, TSA is law enforcement because they enforce the law, but they are not police officers partaking in normal cop duties.

    Maybe Intimidation Squad or Industrialized Military would be a better title. It is bad enough our police departments have gone into robo cop territory we don’t need ICE thugs called “police” too.

    Their uniforms should say Customs & Border Patrol, or Immigration & Customs Enforcement.

    If Congress is going to get into the weeds of the meaning of words, then I suggest they research what a republic form of government is.
