The agency separating families at the border is Border Patrol, not ICE.

Shuffling their duties to other agencies under this administration just means despicable things are being done by different people, probably with less scrutiny.

Ice has hundreds of offices nationwide - the magnitude of unintended consequences for families (some of them possibly non-white!) is unimaginable.

We live in a Republic, not a Democracy, and it is acknowledged as the worst form of government. Except for all the others.

My four-Legs-good reference was apt because Orwell's 1984 gets mentioned a lot but his Animal Farm is just as relevant. When people are angry or scared is when they are easiest to lead and gather behind causes they may know little about. I try to listen to both sides - it often makes me unwelcome with both but at least I avoid falling for inane slogans like 'Make America Great Again' and 'Abolish Ice'.

Finally (for this thread), I should have listened before commenting. Sorry for any disrespect.
