The Washington Post has reported that a group of House Democrats are preparing a bill that will disband ICE within a year. This news comes on the same day that a Politico/Morning Consult poll was released, showing that only 1 in 4 Americans support abolishing ICE.
These developments leave candidates like Amy McGrath with quite the conundrum. She has what should be a clear choice between pandering and public safety. She can either satisfy the base and put the voters she’s running to represent at risk, or stand up for the rule of law and our law enforcement by rejecting this dangerous proposal. Either way, McGrath owes voters in Kentucky’s 6th Congressional District an answer.
“Amy McGrath has already come out in favor of many out-of-touch issues this cycle, and supporting the abolish ICE movement would fit right in with her agenda. If McGrath thinks she can get through November without giving voters an answer on where she stands on this critical public safety issue, she is absolutely wrong.”- RNC Spokesperson Ellie Hockenbury
