Cynthia Nixon: ICE Has Turned into a “Terrorist Organization”

HeadlineJun 22, 2018

New York gubernatorial candidate and actress Cynthia Nixon voiced her support for Debora Berenice Vasquez seeking sanctuary.

Cynthia Nixon: “Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for offering sanctuary to Debora and her children. And thank you for giving us all a place to gather today to stand up with one voice as New Yorkers and say, 'No,' and say, 'No, not in our name. Not in our name.'”

During an interview at the church, Cynthia Nixon described ICE as a “terrorist organization.”

Cynthia Nixon: ”ICE has strayed so far from its mission. It’s supposed to be here to keep Americans safe, but what it’s turned into is, frankly, a terrorist organization of its own, that is terrorizing people who are coming to this country.”

The governor of New York has said that 700 children have been transported here, separated from their parents at the border.
