President Donald Trump asserted on Thursday that a vote in November for Democrats is a vote for “anarchy, amnesty and chaos.”
“A vote for Democrats in November is a vote to let MS-13 run wild in our communities, to let drugs pour into our cities, and to take jobs and benefits away from hardworking Americans,” Trump wrote in a tweet following a speech in Montana, where the Republican was campaigning against Democratic Sen. Jon Tester.
“Democrats want anarchy, amnesty and chaos – Republicans want LAW, ORDER and JUSTICE!” Trump continued in his tweet.
“Every day, the brave men and women of ICE are liberating communities from savage gangs like MS-13,” Trump added in another tweet.
“We will NOT stand for these vile Democrat smears in law enforcement. We will always stand proudly with the BRAVE HEROES of ICE and BORDER PATROL!”
Trump’s tweets come as an increasing number of Democrats have called for the end of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) over the agency’s handling of the ongoing crisis at the southern border. (RELATED: Push To Abolish ICE Picking Up Steam Among Democrats)
The anti-ICE campaign heated up after the surprise primary defeat of New York Rep. Joe Crowley, the fourth highest-ranking Democrat in the House. Crowley lost a June 26 primary race against Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 28-year-old Bernie Sanders organizer and member of the Democratic Socialists of America. Ocasio-Cortez has said she wants to abolish ICE. New York Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand jumped on the bandwagon on June 29, saying that she also wanted to shutter the agency.

Trump has signaled that he plans to continue hammering Democrats over the party’s opposition to ICE.
“Well I hope they keep thinking about it. Because they’re going to get beaten so badly,” Trump said in a Sunday interview on Fox News about Democrats’ ICE position.
