Messer: Democrat Party is Now the Party of Illegal Immigration
March 16, 2018
INDIANAPOLIS (Friday, March 16, 2018) – Luke Messer slammed Democrats Thursday on Fox Business Network for suggesting their candidates should campaign on abolishing the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency.
“It gives you an example of how out of touch the Democrats are now,” Messer said in the interview. “ICE is law enforcement and if anything, we need to be doing more to enhance our law enforcement, secure our border, and enforce the law, not less.”
Messer was responding to calls by former Hillary Clinton aide Brian Fallon, liberal commentators and others saying ICE should be abolished, as well as Nancy Pelosi’s recent comments calling ICE agents “cowardly.”
“The Democratic Party has now become the party of illegal immigration,” Messer continued. “I’m running for the United States Senate against a guy named Joe Donnelly who comes home to Indiana and says he’s for enforcing the laws but he’s for a leadership team that supports all this craziness where we would open our borders and not enforce our laws.
Messer also said Democrats are “starting to put the interests of illegal immigrants before the interests of American citizens because they somehow think it’s going to help them win the next election.”
“It’s out of touch with the American people and I’m telling you if that’s the direction the Democratic Party goes, if that’s the direction they continue in, they’re going to continue to be disappointed at the polls,” Messer said.
