HEY, all, this is JOSETH MOORE; I met you yesterday at the Rally. I hope you don’t hate me, BUT I’VE DECIDED TO NOT ONLY, NOT GO TO THE MEETING, BUT I DON’T KNOW IF I CAN SUPPORT THE VERY GOAL OF ABOLISHING ICE–THOUGH I *PERSONALLY* WANT THAT TO HAPPEN…
long story short, like I was telling the young man (forgot his name–XXXXX): I’m one of those Lefties that has the approach of IF WE CANNOT LEGISLATE OUR PROGRESSIVE IDEAS, IT’S NOT WORTH OUR LIMITED EFFORTS. I DO see trump-impeachment as POSSIBLE>> A. 2 prez already impeached, so NOT unlikely. B. he violated ” emolument clauses of the constitution–experts say this with his hotels & foreign officials using them as “bribery”, etc.
BUT, based on political experts (on OUR side!), the abolish ICE issue COULD ONCE AGAIN SPLIT THE PROGRESSIVE VOTES COME MID-TERMS…SINCE THAT’S WHY WE’RE IN THIS MESS IN THE FIRST PLACE (Bernie-voters splitting Hillary–whom WON the DEM PRIMARY), I DON’T WANT TO RISK LOSING THE POTENTIAL OF RE-GAINING THE SENATE &/OR THE HOUSE.
I’m sorry, but I truly gave this a LOT of thought. I think you, as a small group, are very educated on the issue, AND UNLIKE WHAT HAPPPENED DURING THE 2016 ELECTION, you ALL are well-read & educated on this issue. I HOPE TO WORK WITH YOU ALL DURING THE MID-TERMS. Thanks, & sorry again…
PS What I did not originally write to this wonderful group was I truly believe we should have those officials &/or any agents that exhibited RACIST motivations with the separating of the immigrant families into the US, OUSTED and replaced with objective, professionals!
