“Senator Gillibrand proudly endorsed Albany liberal Anthony Brindisi and according to Gillibrand the first item on their agenda is to weaken our borders and abolish the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement that helps protect our communities from dangerous criminals, terrorists and deadly drugs pouring across our border fueling the opioid crisis,” said Claudia Tenney campaign manager Raychel Renna. “While Gillibrand and Brindisi work to dismantle our immigration system, Claudia Tenney stands with President Trump to strengthen our borders and fully fund ICE.” 

BACKGROUND …

July 22, 2018, Senator Gillibrand who has endorsed Albany liberal Anthony Brindisi said if Democrats regain control of Congress they should get rid of ICE. “‘So when we flip the House and flip the Senate, I think the first thing we should do is deal with the children who have been separated from their families at the border. I think we should get rid of ICE,’ Sen. Gillibrand said at New York City’s OZY Fest 2018.” (Sen. Gillibrand Says the ‘First Thing’ Democrats Should Do If They Take Back Congress Is Abolish ICE, Town Hall, 07/23/18)

Senator Gillibrand endorsed Albany liberal Anthony Brindisi. “Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi has picked up a key endorsement in the race for the 22nd Congressional District seat. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is endorsing Brindisi for Congress.” (Gillibrand Endorses Brindisi For Congress, WIBX-AM, 10/13/17)

Albany liberal Anthony Brindis believes Gillibrand is a “true leader for New York.” “I’m simply honored to have Senator Gillibrand’s support in this race,” Brindisi said. “She’s been a true leader for New York.” (Brindisi endorsed by Gillibrand for Congress, The Utica Observer-Dispatch, 10/13/17)
 
A recent Politico/Morning Consult poll found that Americans oppose eliminating ICE.  “A new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll shows that most voters oppose eliminating Immigration and Customs Enforcement — the homeland security agency some liberal Democrats have called for abolishing. … The majority, 54 percent, think the government should keep ICE. Twenty-one percent of voters are undecided.” (Poll: Voters oppose abolishing ICE, Politico, 07/11/18) 

ICE has rescued 1,422 victims of human trafficking and criminals responsible for 1,800 homicides. “ICE performs vital functions that protect American families.  Last year, agents worked tirelessly around the clock to rescue 1,422 victims of human trafficking. More than 900 of those victims were children. ICE agents also removed a million pounds of narcotics and more than 4,800 gang members from the streets of this country. Those numbers are just a small fraction of the nearly 127,000 arrests made by ICE agents last year against people who came here and committed violent crimes against law-abiding Americans. Those criminals were responsible for more than 50,000 assaults, 2,000 kidnappings and 1,800 homicides.” (Press Release, 07/11/18)
