Jackson Lee Compares ICE to Gestapo

Thursday on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee said President Trump needed to end U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids, comparing them to “Gestapo” tactics.

“I think it’s unfortunate when ICE has to be made into this kind of agency and to be an intimidator rather than an agency that has in the past made sure that we are safe in this nation,” Jackson Lee said. “That is what Americans want, to be safe.”

“But when their neighbors are rounded up in a vile way, when children are left unprotected, I’m disappointed. And the president and Stephen Miller need to stop these Gestapo tactics, and we need to work together to pass comprehensive immigration reform,” she added.

For open borders radicals like Jackson Lee, enforcing immigration law is equivalent to Nazism.
