In a speech to ICE agents this morning, the VP called Cynthia “appalling”
Today, in remarks to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents, Vice President Mike Pence slammed Cynthia Nixon and her statement that ICE has become a terrorist organization. Cynthia issued the following statement in response.
“If Mike Pence is attacking me, we must be doing something right. What’s really appalling is how ICE tears children away from their parents. Parents who came to this country, fleeing deadly violence, to provide a brighter future for their families. Parents who have lived here for decades, paying taxes, building small businesses. Parents whose children are legal U.S. citizens. Parents who have no criminal record. ICE's mere existence causes many New Yorkers to live in daily fear that they will lose their family. I can think of no better description than to call ICE a terrorist organization, and I will wear any criticism from Mike Pence as a badge of honor. ”
