Arizona Governor Doug Ducey says calls to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement are misguided. In an opinion piece for "USA Today," Ducey noted that the agency was created through a bipartisan effort after the September 11th terror attacks.
He says calls to get rid of the agency today are simply an opportunistic election year rallying cry. Ducey said that as the governor of a border state, he believes getting rid of ICE would be reckless and put Arizonans at risk.
Ducey said ICE isn't a political issue and that the men and women there fight illegal drugs and human trafficking.
