Should U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) be eliminated?
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) should be eliminated.
ICE often requires local and state law enforcement to act as federal proxies.
ICE is relatively ineffective at its job.
Calling ICE agents is commonly used as a threat against immigrant populations, regardless of whether they are undocumented or not.
It does not make sense that ICE is separate from the rest of the immigration system, specifically the awarding and processing of immigrants and immigrant visas.
ICE routinely racially profiles.
ICE uses tactics specifically designed to scare and marginalize immigrants in America.
The duties of ICE are redundant with other agencies and departments.
Any agency replacing ICE would replicate the problems of the current enforcement program.
ICE is a rather new agency. It was founded in 2003 and should be given time to establish itself.
ICE currently does a necessary job. It is important to have dedicated immigration enforcement.
ICE is the
second largest contributor
to America's Joint Terrorism Task Force. Eliminating would weaken the nation's defenses against terrorism.
ICE has currently over 20.000 employees. It is difficult to imagine that expertise and experience on this scale could easily be compensated for elsewhere.
