Democratic Arizona Rep Ruben Gallego warns ICE agents, they ‘will not be safe’ if Trump is gone

Arizona Democratic Rep. Ruben Gallego made threatening statements toward Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents on Thursday, warning those who are conducting deportations that they “will not be safe” from future punishment after the Trump administration is out of office.

“If you are a U.S. government official and you are deporting Americans be warned,” Gallego tweeted. “When the worm turns you will not be safe because you were just following orders. You do not have to take part in illegal acts ordered by this President’s administration.”

Fox News reported that Chris Crane, the president of the National ICE Council, accused Gallego of trying to bring harm toward ICE agents.

“It should be frightening to every American that a sitting member of Congress would threaten the safety of any person and their family, and incite the public to take acts of violence against them, let alone the lives of those whose job it is to protect us and keep us safe,” Crane told the network.

The Arizona Democrat later doubled down on his statement, writing in a statement to The Hill, “Government officials who violate the law or the constitution will not be immune to legal consequences. They will eventually be held accountable for their actions, even if the Trump administration is refusing to do so.”

The Washington Post reports that government officials were denying passports to Hispanic-Americans that were suspected of having fraudulent identities.

“The facts don’t back up the Washington Post’s reporting,” State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert told Fox News. “This is an irresponsible attempt to create division and stoke fear among American citizens while attempting to inflame tensions over immigration. Under the Trump Administration, domestic passport denials for so called ‘midwife cases’ are at a 6-year low. The reporting is a political cheap shot.”

Gallego has no viable rival in 2018 in a district abandoned by the GOP, where Democrat registration is 31% higher than Republicans.
