MSNBC host Kasie Hunt pressed Democratic Senator Chris Van Hollen on his party’s total lack of clarity surrounding the nation’s escalating immigration crisis Monday, saying liberal legislators are “not very clear” when it comes to border security.
Van Hollen was speaking with Hunt earlier Monday when he was asked whether he supports his Democratic colleagues’ call for the total abolishment of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.

“Look, Democrats have been very clear… We’re for border security,” said the liberal Senator.
“I think many Americans probably look at ‘abolish ICE’ and say it’s not very clear,” fired back MSNBC’s Hunt.

IT BEGINS: Bill De Blasio Calls for ABOLISHMENT of ‘BROKEN’ ICE
Big Apple Mayor Bill de Blasio slammed the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency Friday; blasting the “unreasonable” department and calling for the abolishment of ICE in the aftermath of “family separations.”
De Blasio took to twitter to attack the federal agency, saying America needs “reasonable law enforcement” along the US-Mexico border; adding that ICE agents are “not reasonable law enforcement.”
“Every country needs reasonable law enforcement on their borders. ICE is not reasonable law enforcement. ICE is broken, it’s divisive and it should be abolished,” he tweeted.

The Mayor’s comments come just days after the President signed an executive order ending “family separations” along the border; effectively permitting minors to remain with their parents while being processed by federal agents.
IT BEGINS: Dem Introduces Bill to ‘ABOLISH ICE,’ Calls Trump ‘WHITE NATIONALIST’
A Democratic congressman introduced legislation to officially “abolish” the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency this week, saying “heartless” ICE agents are “ripping at the moral fabric of our nation.”
Rep Mark. Pocan of Wisconsin sponsored the left-wing bill just days after President Trump signed an executive order ending “family separations” along the US-Mexico border, saying the agency fails to “represent the values” of America.
“ICE is tearing apart families and ripping at the moral fabric of our nation,” said Pocan. “Unfortunately, President Trump and his team of white nationalists, including Stephen Miller, have so misused ICE that the agency can no longer accomplish its goals effectively.”
“The heartless actions of this abused agency do not represent the values of our nation and the U.S. must develop a more humane immigration system, one that treats every person with dignity and respect,” he added.
