I absolutely 100% agree with that.
As for the rest of what you wrote though,
Using “Abolish ICE” as a political rallying cry is a national issue. You think Republicans in swing districts won’t bring up what’s happening in other parts of the country? You don’t think Republicans will say “The Democrats want to abolish ICE, so if you elect Moderate Candidate X, he or she will support that agenda?” Of course they will. Again, it is much easier (and much more importantly a better political move) to have a political rallying cry against family separation than about abolishing ICE. Who wants to separate families? Answer: Monsters, that’s who, and don’t vote for the monster. Abolishing ICE is a much more complicated issue and much harder to capitalize on it.
Do you think it’s a coincidence that Nancy Pelosi is mentioned in pretty much every Congressional race in the entire country? EVERY race takes on national consequences these days, especially when you’re talking about something like Abolishing ICE. Every time liberals bring that up, they are making it harder for Democrats in swing states to win.
