    "Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) workers are facing a rapidly escalating series of threats, including protesters menacing their children and shots being fired at their offices, amid a rising tide of anti-ICE rhetoric from the left fueled by congressional Democrats, media voices and presidential hopefuls."

    "Last month, a man was killed by Washington state authorities when he threw incendiary devices at both an immigration center and nearby propane tanks. In Colorado, protesters demonstrating outside an ICE facility replaced the American flag with the Mexican flag. Also last month, protesters were arrested after trying to storm an ICE building in Washington, D.C."

    "Department of Homeland Security Acting Secretary Kevin McAleenan said ....... people need to tone down “dangerous” rhetoric that demonizes ICE officials."

    When will this stop?

    ICE is working for us. They are the "good guys", enforcing our laws. How have they become a target in this political insanity? And since when has this type of "protest" become acceptable?

    As for the people harassing the ICE contractor ---- is all of that even legal? (I know it's wrong, but is it also illegal? Does it cross a line to stalking, or inciting violence?)

    Extremists on the left want to accuse Trump of inciting violence just by his existence. What about these people? What about Democrat politicians, ginning this up for attention and personal gain?

    I agree with former ICE Director Thomas Homan when he said "Politicians who condemn attacks on themselves and institutions and policies they support have an obligation to condemn such attacks on their opponents just as vigorously."

    Thoughts?

    All of this violence has been incited by Democrat politicians.

    That's the true threat.. "we'll get your family" . I used to carry in Mexico, highly illegal there! until I realized that even if I did prevail in a gun battle, they would track down and kill my whole family.. so I decided that carrying in Mexico would cost more than I was willing to pay. They can just kill me and leave my family alone.

    Open borders anarchy is not the way forward, nor will it win in general elections. Look to the Bimbo Brigade, AOC and friends all have been advocating abolishing ICE, where are they to advocate a peaceful solution? They are nowhere to be found...

    The Left are the new Fascists. They can change all the dictionary definitions they want to include "Right Wing" under "Fascist", but in the end, they are the Fascists.

    I have a few older dictionaries where "Fascism" has zero reference to "Left" or "Right".

    Let's hope they are at their peak. If it gets worse, we turn into Spain (of past) where people in both factions round up opposition and murder them.

    This violent rhetoric is directly related to the division caused by the left.

    As already pointed out several times, this is a result of progressive rhetoric, but they won't own up to it because deep down they think it's just. They'll just gaslight and continue trying to blame alt-right/neo nazi violence on Trump... when even THAT'S more attributable to them since they're pushing for the policies that are basically a call to action for these extremists, and they're the ones constantly spewing anti-white/Western rhetoric.

    I agree. This divisiveness and hatred started under Obama, and now the left is feeding on it, breeding it, and exacerbating it every chance they get. All the while, trying to blame Trump.

    Did Obama claim the Trump was born in Russa and that his foreign born mother snuck him into NewYork?

    Yes after all we heard those stinking Liberals such as Bernie Danders and Barack Obama chant " Jews will not replace us". Or no wait those were extre mist right wing Nazis and White Supremacists who chanted that in Charlettesville.

    When did Trump tell a guy to shoot Mexicans? You know damn well that the violent left is pushing hate on ICE and has called them Nazis.

    Did anyone attack anyone else because we Americans wanted to see proof of eligibility to work in this country just like hundreds of millions of working people had to do? Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Obama told violent rioters to stay the course.

    When did and who on the left say to go attack ICE? When did any left wing POTUS tell any ICE agents to go back to where they came from and fix crap there? When did any POTUS on the left say that ICE agents are murdersers, rapists, or drug pushers? When did any left wing POTUS say that there where fine or good people among Nazis or White Supremacists?

    Anyone, be they left, right, or in the middle who calls ICE Nazis is stupid.
    Anyone who calls Democrats Communists is wrong and those not understand what Communism is.

    Yes, AOC is remarkably stupid yet is still very popular among Democrats. She would be barred from the Republican Party.

    You don't know where the violence is coming from. despite Maxine Waters and others telling their supporters to harass people in public, and at their homes.

    You don't know about the leftists crowding Mitch McConnell's home and saying they should tear the *********kers heart and then, despite this, the Democrat leader later calls him Moscow Mitch, to further provoke her idiotic followers?

    Let’s see some politicians come out and admit their words can cause violence or spread hate? Oh that’s right!!! Only Republicans spread hate? Democrats calling ICE Nazis, racist or murderers, isn’t hateful at all. /boggle

    Oh yeah. All those same politicians who blame Trump for mass shooting last are conveniently silent. As usual, then Democrat definition of spreading hate NEVER includes them.

    What does that have to do with the Democrat vilification of ICE? Desperation and deflection is not a good look.
