'Go Back to History Class': Border Patrol Council VP Rips Cynthia Nixon for 'Terrorist' Claims
U.S. Border Patrol Council Vice President Art del Cueto ripped New York gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon for calling Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) a "terrorist organization."
"ICE has strayed so far from its mission. It's supposed to be here to keep Americans safe... It's turned into a terrorist organization," Nixon (D), formerly of "Sex and the City," said.
Nixon is seeking the Democratic nomination against two-term incumbent Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo (D-N.Y.).
"I don't know what to say to these people," del Cueto said, adding that he took issue with TIME magazine's controversial cover featuring President Trump and an immigrant child.
"The pictures that the media likes to continuously show [are] from the Obama administration," he said, adding that Phil Keating's report from a Florida detention center is a more accurate portrayal of what is happening on the ground.
He also ripped actor Peter Fonda, who sent several incendiary tweets directed at federal officials and Barron Trump.
"It's disgusting," he said. "They need to go back to history class."
