They want to eliminate DHS and Abolish ICE

Granholm Dream Ticket, Most Liberal Update:  Whitmer-Gilchrist Support Dangerous Policies of Abolishing ICE and Eliminating Department of Homeland Security

“Gretchen Whitmer and Garlin Gilchrist support dangerous policies which would threaten the safety of Michigan families”  

Midland, MI—Better Jobs Stronger Families Executive Director Stu Sandler blasted Democrats Gretchen Whitmer and Garlin Gilchrist for their dangerous comments towards federal enforcement agencies that help protect this nation.   Whitmer’s comments about abolishing the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE) were caught on camera.  On the video, Whitmer responded to questions about abolishing ICE:
Questioner:  Do you think we should abolish ICE, though? 
Whitmer: I that ICE is doing a fundamentally uncool and unconstitutional, undemocratic…
Questioner: Do you think we should abolish it? 
Whitmer:  Yes. Our Governor needs to stand up.
 Questioner: Do you think we should abolish it?
Whitmer: (Nods Yes)
Questioner: Thank you, ma’am.  
Gilchrist’s comments to eliminate the Department of Homeland Security come from his blog where he wrote, “I question why we even have a Department of Homeland Security.”

The Department of Homeland Security was created by a bipartisan vote in 2002 following the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. The duties of this department include protecting citizens and businesses from cyberattacks, providing a coordinated federal response to terrorist attacks and natural disasters, securing our borders and enforcing our immigration laws, stopping human trafficking, cracking down on gang violence, and working to prevent acts of terrorism. 
“Gretchen Whitmer and Garlin Gilchrist support dangerous policies which would threaten the safety of Michigan families.  The elimination of the Department of Homeland Security and the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency would be catastrophic and a real threat to public safety. Whitmer and Gilchrist are too big a risk for Michigan,” said Stu Sandler, Better Jobs Stronger Families Executive Director.
“While she was in the legislature, Gretchen Whitmer repeatedly named one of the “Most Liberal” State Senators.  Garlin Gilchrist is an ultraliberal activist who worked for for 3 years and helped advocate for amnesty for illegal immigrants.  Whitmer and Gilchrist both support reckless, liberal policies that will make Michigan less safe. By choosing former National Campaign Director Garlin Gilchirst to the ticket, Gretchen Whitmer has created the Granholm Dream Team with the most liberal ticket in Michigan history.
