Biden’s VP pick, Kamala Harris, made comparisons back in November of 2018 between ICE and the KKK in a Senate hearing.
Harris Claims Racism Because ICE Arrests Immigrants
Kamala Harris was questioning President Trump’s pick to head the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Agency, ICE, when she drew comparisons between the border protectors and the KKK, the white supremacist group. Harris asked Ronald Vitiello if he was “aware of the perception” of a similarity between the two organizations.
The Senator from California highlighted a tweet of Vitiello’s from 2015, where he called the Democrat Party a “neo-Klanist” entity. Vitiello apologized for his words, as the KKK would be called a domestic terror group today, motivated by race, using “fear and force” to obtain their goals.
Harris asked if he was “aware of the perception of many about how the power and the discretion at ICE is being used to enforce the laws and do you see any parallels?” Vitiello totally denied the comparisons, but Harris pushed on.
ICE Must Change, Harris Argues
“Are you aware that there is a perception that ICE is administering its power in a way that is causing fear and intimidation, particularly among immigrants and specifically among immigrants coming from Mexico and Central America?” she continued.
“There’s a lot of perceptions in the media and in the public that are incorrect about the agency and what it does,” Vitiello hit back, but this wasn’t enough. Harris posited that because there was a perception that ICE and the KKK were linked, that there had to be something wrong, and therefore the agency must do something about it.

This is, of course, complete nonsense. Here’s something then. Kamala Harris, unlike ICE, I “perceive” you to act just like the KKK, in which you try and divide the country based on race, and cause fear among the populace. I expect an immediate apology and for you to change your ways, because obviously, if I perceive this, then you have to do something! Get back to me soon Kamala!
