(Breitbart) House Democrats are crafting legislation ahead of the 2018 midterm elections that would abolish the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency — the sole law enforcement unit tasked with arresting and deporting criminal illegal aliens.

Pocan’s legislation, which has been circulated around to House Democrats, would set up a task force to review what ICE should be replaced with. In the meantime, no federal agency would be able to arrest and detain illegal aliens living across the United States. The Democrat plan would — at least temporarily — cease all interior enforcement of immigration.
