PHOENIX — Christine Marsh, a Democrat running for the Arizona State Senate, ‘liked’ a tweet calling for the abolishment of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), adding to growing concerns among voters that she wants to eliminate an agency responsible for keeping Americans safe.
Alyssa Milano, an actress and far-left political activist, has become one of the agency’s most outspoken opponents in Hollywood. She has called for the outright abolishment of ICE, as well as the abolishment of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). The actress often tags her social media activity with #AbolishICE and #AbolishCBP — referring to the political movement led by Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of Queens.
“TODAY, show up. Wear white. Make your voice heard,” Milano tweeted on June 30, inviting her followers to a protest and using the #AbolishICE hashtag to signify her support.
Christine Marsh, the Democrat running for state senate, personally ‘liked’ that tweet, sharing it with her own followers on Twitter.
As highlighted on “Marsh Is Wrong,” a new website set up by Senate Victory PAC, the Democrat also quietly indicated on a liberal group’s Candidate Survey that she “strongly agrees” with the following statement: “I support policy that would restrict and/or end the cooperation of local law enforcement with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.”
Marsh’s show of support for #AbolishICE and “sanctuary city” status comes amid growing concern from families across Arizona’s 28th legislative district about her position on border security.
Marsh is running against Republican State Senator Kate Brophy McGee, who currently represents the 28th district and is a longtime advocate for educators at the Arizona State Capitol.
Brophy McGee is one of the first volunteers who pushed for the “original” Proposition 301 education-funding mechanism to appear on the ballot in 1999.
