Hyper-liberal senator and 2020 hopeful Kamala Harris unloaded on the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency Monday evening; accusing federal agents of committing “human rights abuse” along the US-Mexico border.
Harris slammed ICE agents on social media over “family separations” occurring when immigrant families are apprehended after crossing into the United States illegally, saying “Every single day these families are separated, another child goes to sleep terrified because they don’t know where their parents are. All because of a policy used to punish immigrants fleeing violence. This remains a human rights abuse.”

The Senator’s comments come as leading Democrats -including NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio and NY Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand- renewed their calls for the total “abolishment” of ICE; claiming the agency no longer reflects “American values.”
KAMALA 2020? Sen. Harris REFUSES TO ANSWER if She’ll Accept ‘Corporate Donations’
Democratic Senator and possible 2020 presidential hopeful Kamala Harris refused to answer questions about her future campaign financing; deflecting when asked whether she would accept political donations from large corporations.
Harris was speaking at a town hall event in California when she was asked for a “specific answer” over whether she would say “no thanks” to all political donations from large companies or corporate lobbyists.
“If a corporation or a corporate lobbyist wants to give you money for a campaign, will you tell them, ‘Thanks, but no thanks?’” asked one attendant.
“It depends” deflected Harris. “And that’s why we have rules that require that any donation that anyone receives needs to be disclosed.”
“So that you can do an assessment and the voters can do an assessment and look at where the contributions come from and make your decisions about whether those contributions have influenced the way that people act and the way that people vote,” she added.

KAMALA 2020? Sen. Harris Says She’s ‘NOT RULING OUT’ Run Against Trump
Liberal Senator and potential 2020 Democratic front-runner Kamala Harris raised eyebrows throughout Washington Monday, saying she wasn’t “ruling out” a possible run for the White House.
The liberal lawmaker was speaking with MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt when she was asked to comment on her political ambitions after the 2018 midterms, eventually admitting she was weighing a possible presidential bid against Donald Trump.
“Right now I’m focused on this. I’m focused on a lot of other things as a higher priority,” Harris said when asked about the 2020 race.
“But you’re not ruling it out?” Hunt pressed.
“I don’t know. I’m not ruling it out,” Harris admitted.
