Democratic Rep. Mark Pocan (Wis.) announced Monday he is introducing a bill to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
In a tweet, Pocan called out President Donald Trump “and his team of white nationalists,” for misusing ICE so it can “no longer accomplish its goals effectively.”
.@realDonaldTrump & his team of white nationalists, including Stephen Miller, have so misused @ICEgov that the agency can no longer accomplish its goals effectively. I’m introducing a bill to #AbolishICE & crack down on the agency’s blanket directive to target & round up people. pic.twitter.com/xhHsOHCdNH

His press office said his bill would create a commission to provide recommendations to Congress on how the U.S. can develop a more humane immigration system.
