Hours after Brandon Ziobrowski had been arrested in New York for trying to use social media to put a bounty on the life of all ICE agents, a Republican candidate who is running for U.S. senate in the state of Massachusetts did not hesitate to let it be known how he feels. Geoff Diehl has demanded that current U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren takes back what she had been saying about ICE agents and apologizes for the harsh criticism that these brave men and women who enforce the law have had to endure from the Democrat party the last couple of months. In a statement released to the media Republican candidate Geoff Diehl said, “we now have a man putting a bounty on the heads of ICE agents. Senator Warren’s irresponsible statements are partially to blame. She has a responsibility to support our law enforcement officials. Her call to abolish ICE and painting the entire criminal justice system racists are reckless and dangerous.”
Brandon Ziobrowski, a 33 year old from Cambridge, Massachusetts found himself arrested in New York. He has been charged with one count of use of interstate and foreign commerce to transmit a threat and injure another person. Authorities say that it was July 2 when he tweeted, “I am broke but will scrounge and literally give $500 to anyone who kills an ICE agent. @me seriously who else can pledge get in on this lets make this work.”
According to federal officials the 33 year old from Cambridge, Mass. Brandon Ziobrowski has targeted others with threats of violence as well. He once posted a tweet expressing the desire to slit the throat of U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.
At a news conference where he announced the arrest of Brandon Ziobrowski U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling said, “he appears to be very much against ICE and its mission. He appears to have a violent dislike for at least one Republican senator and law enforcement.”
In the eyes of Republican candidate Geoff Diehl, Elizabeth Warren may hold similar views at least when it comes to ICE and their mission to enforce the current law while making America a better place. When speaking about Warren and the current situation Geoff Diehl said, “we need a Senator who will support our police and not throw ICE under the bus to score political points. Warren should be putting public safety first. Instead she is prioritizing her White House political ambitions to the detriment of law enforcement.”
It was earlier this summer back on June 30 when Elizabeth Warren completely slammed President Trump’s immigration policies claiming that America needs to rebuild our immigration system from top to bottom, starting by replacing ICE with something that reflects our morality and that works.
When the office of Elizabeth Warren was contacted in regards to the comments of Geoff Diehl her office let it be known that the senator opposes any form of violence against law enforcement officers. In an official statement the senator’s office said, “we can have respectful discussions and civil discourse on policy while working together to improve lives.”
