Kamala Harris: ICE is a Hate Organization Like the KKK

Strange how the media's frenzied worrying about unhinged rhetoric and lunatic conspiracy theories melts away when such claims come from the mouth of a Democrat.

After asking the nominee to head ICE, Ronald Vitello, about the KKK and what its motivations were, Harris began demanding to know if he saw connections between the KKK, a terrorist organization, and ICE, a federal law-enforcement agency.

"Are you 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 ..." she asked.

Vitiello interjected before Harris could name ICE and the KKK: "I do not see any parallels."

"That puts ICE in the same category as the KKK. Is that what you're asking me?" he said.

"No, I'm very specific in what I'm asking you. Are you aware of a perception that they way that they ..." Harris said.

"I see none," Vitiello said.

"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 asked.

Vitiello said he did not. Harris asked how he could be the head of an agency and not be aware of how some view it.


"It seems to me that you would understand that when you use words like the words you used just three short years ago, that that would contribute to that perception," Harris said. "And it's harmful then, it's harmful, in terms of the mission of the agency and the work of the individuals there. And it is harmful in terms of leading -- innocent people arriving at our border fleeing harm, it is harmful to them."
