US Customs and Border Protection is the agency actually entrusted with securing the border. No one I know is in favor of eliminating that agency.

Ignorance fought.

By definition, ICE doesnít work within 50 miles of the border. Basically, I feel they are too heavily militarized for a mission conducted within civilian communities and that their tactics are too heavy-handed. I would like to see their duties re-examined and absorbed by other agencies.

Hardly a far left position.
