Arizona Democratic congressional candidate Ann Kirkpatrick was publicly heckled and booed at least five times during a recent town hall event; enraging liberal audience members as she said she supports the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.
The candidate for Arizona’s 2nd Congressional District drew a fierce rebuke from the packed crowd after she raised her hand when asked if anyone there, “would declare their support for ICE agents without any increased oversight.”
Kirkpatrick’s defiant gesture comes on the heels of leading Democratic politicians’ calls for the total abolishment of ICE, including Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio.

IT BEGINS: Brick Thrown Through Republican Party HQ Window, ‘ABOLISH ICE’ Graffiti Left
Unidentified assailants smashed the windows of the Nebraska Republican Party Headquarters in Lincoln late Monday night; spray-painting the words “abolish ICE” beneath the damaged building.
According to the Daily Caller, “vandals” destroyed the GOP’s windows in protest of the President’s harsh crackdown on illegal immigration, with the party’s executive director confirming local police are actively investigating the incident.
“This destructive criminal activity is disappointing, but unsurprising, given the increasingly radical rhetoric of national Democrat leaders and candidates like Jane Raybould, Kara Eastman, and Jane Kleeb. Violence is the natural result of the Left’s statements urging Democrats to literally ‘push back’ on Republicans and ‘resist’ at any cost,” the Director told the Daily Caller. “Voters face a stark choice between sanity and the rabid, hateful words that sparked this vandalism.”
The incident comes just days after Rep. Maxine Waters urged her supporters to confront Trump officials at “restaurants” and “gasoline stations” to protest the President’s immigration policies.

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.
