U.S. Senator Kristen Gillibrand (D-NY), the first senator to call for abolishing ICE, stumped for Phil Bredesen’s campaign Saturday in the “I Will Vote Rally” at Third Man Records in Nashville.

Gillibrand was the first senator to publicly support the idea of abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Here’s what she said about ICE:

“[T]hat’s why I believe you should get rid of it, start over, reimagine it and build something that actually works.”

She later claimed her statement was misconstrued.

Gillibrand donated $5,000 to Democrat Phil Bredesen to join her in the Senate.

Bredesen is locked in a tight race for a vacant U.S. Senate seat with U.S. Representative Marsha Blackburn (R-TN-07). A Tennessee Star poll shows Blackburn with a 3-point lead.

Bredesen has been under fire in Tennessee for his liberal views on immigration, including giving drivers certificates to illegal aliens.

Gillibrand isn’t the only Senator supporting abolishing ICE who has also donated to Bredesen. U.S. Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) has donated $10,000 to Bredesen and wants ICE to “start from scratch.”

If Democrats are trying to win in a state that gave President Donald Trump 60 percent of the vote, they certainly are picking odd outside reinforcements to do so, Tennessee Republican Party Chairman Scott Golden said.

“We shouldn’t be surprised that Phil Bredesen, the same guy who gave driving certificates to illegal aliens, is now being supported by a radical open-borders Democrat who disparages our law enforcement officers and supports sanctuary cities,” Golden said. “A vote for Marsha Blackburn will be to secure our southern border and follow the rule of law. A vote for Phil will be to make the extreme Left’s wildest immigration dreams come true.”
