Graham Cosponsors Resolution Opposing Efforts To Abolish ICE

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) is a cosponsor of a Senate Resolution (S. Res. 572) that denounces calls to abolish U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and expresses support for the officers and employees who carry out ICE’s mission.  

“I’m proud to be a cosponsor of this important resolution,” said Graham. “Hyper-partisan calls to abolish ICE are delusional at best. We are fortunate to have hardworking ICE officers who put their life on the line to protect Americans. The security of our country depends on brave men and women like these and we owe them a great deal.”

The Senate resolution:

  • Expresses continued support for all officers and employees of ICE who carry out the important mission of the agency;
  • Denounces calls for the complete abolishment of ICE; and
  • Supports the efforts of officers and employees of the U.S. Armed Forces and federal and state law enforcement agencies who bring law and order to the borders of the United States.
