I honestly don’t know how you can read this first-hand report from journalist Molly Crabapple and think that abolishing ICE is a radical position. Read this whole damn thing.
Crabapple isn't the only journalist who experienced this Kafkaesque madness. A former investigative reporter for the New York Times confirmed that this kind of authoritarianism is nothing new for an organization created under George W. Bush.
A senior writer for CNN investigations echoed these thoughts too.
Even a non-journalist who sponsored an asylum seeker confirmed this thread as representative of her experience with ICE's general practices.
Abolish ICE. No civilized country needs a mass deportation force—let alone one who thinks that they’re not accountable to the public.
