Nixon was at a church in Manhattan’s Upper West Side Thursday, where an undocumented immigrant is avoiding deportation, when she told NY1 News, “ICE has strayed so far away from its mission. It is supposed to be here to keep Americans safe but what it has turned into is frankly a terrorist organization of its own that is terrorizing people who are coming to this country.”
On the same day Nixon labeled ICE terrorists, she called for the agency to be completely abolished while appearing on “The View.”

“I think we need to abolish ICE. That seems really clear. They have strayed so far from the interests of the American people and the interests of humanity,” she said.
