Hudson Votes to Support ICE
 
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today U.S. Representative Richard Hudson (NC-08) released the following statement after voting for H.Res. 990, a resolution supporting the officers and personnel who carry out the important mission of the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE):
 
“We’ve heard quite a few absurd ideas from Washington, but abolishing ICE might be the most absurd,” said Rep. Hudson. “These law enforcement officers work to remove violent criminals like MS-13 from our communities, stop drugs from being smuggled over our borders, arrest human traffickers and protect victims, and uphold public safety. Vilifying these men and women in uniform is wrong and reckless. Today’s vote says loud and clear: I support ICE and their critical mission to secure our nation’s borders.”
 
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is a law enforcement agency of the Federal government of the United States under the jurisdiction of the Department of Homeland Security. Following the introduction of Democrat-led legislation to abolish ICE, the House today voted on a resolution in support of the organization. This is in line with the opinion of the majority of Americans who believe in upholding the rule of law and supporting ICE.
 
This critical agency is responsible for stopping and detaining terrorists, identifying and rescuing victims of human trafficking and child exploitation, and seizing hundreds of thousands of pounds of illegal narcotics each year. In FY 2017, ICE rescued 518 victims of trafficking and over 904 child exploitation victims were identified or rescued. ICE arrested 4,818 gang members, including 793 MS-13 members in 2017. In FY 2016 ICE Homeland Security Investigations arrested 1,952 individuals for human trafficking. From those arrests ICE was able to identify over 400 trafficking victims and provide them with the critical care they needed. Also in FY 2017, ICE seized 981,586 lbs. of narcotics, including more than 2,370 lbs. of fentanyl and 6,967 lbs. of heroin.
