On “Outnumbered” on Monday, Fox contributor Juan Williams was on the hot seat over the issue of prominent Democrats calling for the abolishment of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
“Juan, do you think that’s a winning issue?” asked host Melissa Francis. “Abolish ICE, is it a good idea?”
“That’s the question,” Williams said, stating that advocating for that creates “an opening” for those that accuse Democrats of being more open borders.
With all the spinning Tarlov, Juan Williams, et al does, seems to me the better platform for them is CNN. It’s nice to see the alternative side but, they don’t produce a side, just constant Trump/GOP bashing. There’s gotta be one conservative thing that’s good?

@TheFive could someone please explain to Juan Williams that ICE is just enforcing the law. If these families didn’t violate the the immigration laws then they wouldn’t be getting prosecuted. If they don’t want deported then don’t come in unlawfully

Juan Williams literally said that ICE has become some type of enforcement agency…. I guess he doesn’t know what the “E” in ICE stands for. Smh

How fast do you think Juan Williams and the rest of the democrats would change their minds about getting rid of ICE if MS13 showed up on their doorstep to take one of their children. It just seems like everything that is good for the country democrats are against. “Go Trump” USA

@OutnumberedFNC ~ It just warms me all over listening to Juan Williams blather on about abolishing ICE. I don’t care what the subject, as soon as he opens his mouth he swings left. I guess you have to have him on to be Fair & Balanced but he makes me gag.

“Instead of becoming something that keeps terrorists and bad guys and drug dealers out, has become like an enforcement force, if you will, that goes and raids homes, raids jobs, makes people uncomfortable in their own land,” Williams added, appearing to offer support for the “Abolish ICE” calls.
“You got almost 70% of the country who say we should not abolish ICE,” co-host Abby Huntsman responded.
“You were wrong in saying it’s the majority of Democrats,” said Williams, prompting a larger back and forth with the panel.
