Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s PAC “Off the Sidelines” donated thousands of dollars to Susie Lee’s campaign for Congress. In response to Gillibrand’s most recent comments against ICE, Danny Tarkanian released the following statement:
I call on Susie Lee to return the thousands of dollars in contributions that she’s received from a radical left, anti-law enforcement politician. I fully condemn Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s extremist plan to terminate the jobs of more than 20,000 employees of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. The elimination of ICE would surrender border security and end the enforcement of our federal immigration laws. I will not stand by and allow that to happen. I hope that Susie Lee will do the right thing and join me in standing up for the brave men and women of law enforcement dedicated to keeping our nation safe.
Background info: On Sunday, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand emphatically stated if Democrats win “the first thing we should do” is abolish ICE. She is part of a small group of far left Democrats publicly calling for the end of the law enforcement agency.
