Press Release

(Washington, DC) – Congressman Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) issued the following statement after the House passed a resolution reaffirming support for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and denouncing proposed legislation to abolish ICE.

 
LaMalfa said: “ICE is an agency that works around the clock to protect our country and secure our borders, yet somehow, a few of my colleagues across the aisle thought it would be a good idea to abolish this important agency. This was nothing more than a political stunt. Without ICE, even a modest level of border security would be extremely difficult to achieve. We should be doing all that we can to support this critical branch of law enforcement, not try to run them out of town. I was glad to vote to reaffirm my support and appreciation for the job that they do to protect our borders.”
