Zephyr Teachout, who is running as a Democrat, said ICE has “become a tool of fear and illegality” in a video for Now This News where the Fordham University law professor stressed her support for abolishing the agency.

“As attorney general, I will continue to speak out against ICE. I will prosecute ICE for their criminal acts,” Teachout said. “We have stories of consistent abuse within ICE.”

 

“The idea that we can call this 'law enforcement' is a real offense to the idea of law itself,” Teachout continued.

Teachout isn’t the only Democrat – especially in New York – who has gotten behind the movement to abolish ICE, the agency that was created in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people in the U.S. in 2001.


The New York Democratic Primary is scheduled for September 13.
