Fiery Judge Jeanine: Sen. Kamala Harris' Comparison of ICE to KKK Is 'Pure Insanity'
In her Opening Statement, Judge Jeanine Pirro blasted Sen. Kamala Harris for comparing Immigration and Customs Enforcement to the Ku Klux Klan.
Last week, Harris (D-Calif.) grilled President Trump's nominee for ICE director, Ronald Vitiello, on the "perception" that the two organizations are acting in similar ways.
"Are you aware of the perception of many about how the power and discretion at ICE has been used to enforce laws?" Harris asked, questioning whether Vitiello believes a perceived similarity exists between ICE and the Klan.
Pirro asked on Saturday how Harris would act on her promise to combat gangs and fight human trafficking without ICE.
"Who you gonna call, Ghostbusters? Was the con then or is the con now?"
Pirro implored Harris to use her position as a U.S. senator to change the laws regarding ICE if she doesn't approve of them.
"Don’t gin people up into a frenzy suggesting ICE is like the KKK with images of burning crosses and lynchings of innocent African-Americans, likening it to innocent Mexicans and Central Americans," she said.
She said that Harris is "planting seeds of fear, resistance and resentment against ICE" among people trying to enter the country illegally.
"Your perception of ICE as the KKK is pure insanity," she said. "This is America. The law is the law. Respect it. Honor it. Fear it. Damn it, fear it. Any questions?"
