BERNIE SANDERS: Abolish Our Cruel, Dysfunctional Immigration System, Restructure ICE

Sanders calls to ‘Abolish the Cruel, Dysfunctional Immigration System We Have Today.’

Texas Insider Report: WASHINGTON, D.C. — “Now, it is time to do what Americans overwhelmingly want: Abolish the cruel, dysfunctional Immigration System we have today and pass Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” tweeted Democrat-Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders earlier this week.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (Independent-VT) is calling for the abolition of the United States’ current immigration system, and for the restructuring of Immigration & Customs Enforcement after facing criticism for dancing around the issue.
“I think that what we need is to create policies which deal with immigration in a rational way — and a rational way is not locking children up in detention centers or separating them from their mothers.
“What we need is Trump to sit down with members of Congress and work on a rational program which deals with this serious issue.”
Sanders has now joined fellow Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), a number of other lawmakers in calling the agency into question in light of iits handling of immigration as a matter of criminal enforcement.

In a series of tweets on Tuesday, the 2016 presidential candidate took a clearer stance on the agency, telling his followers:

In 2002 I voted against the creation of DHS and the establishment of ICE. That was the right vote. Now, it is time to do what Americans overwhelmingly want: Abolish the cruel, dysfunctional Immigration System we have today and pass Comprehensive Immigration Reform.
