Michelle Wolf compares ICE to ISIS in new video

The Hill
July 21, 2018

Michelle Wolf, the Netflix star who hosted the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner earlier this year, is comparing U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to ISIS in a new parody video released Friday.

“Wow, ICE is … really desperate for recruits,” the host of “The Break with Michelle Wolf” wrote in a tweet from her program’s account released with the video. It also includes an “#abolishICE” hashtag.

The two-minute clip opens with a montage of videos, spanning from the American flag to a family eating a meal.

“Do you feel like your land is being invaded by foreign intruders who want to change your culture?” a narrator asks. “Do you believe your way of life is under attack, and are you ready to finally do something about it?”

“Then apply now to join ICE,” the narrator continues as the videos cuts to a black screen portraying the law enforcement agency’s logo.

The video then cuts to a string of actors dressed in ICE uniforms saying things like “ICE is about rooting out the foreign enemy.”

Many of the comments sound similar to ISIS statements.

Later in the video, Wolf makes an appearance portraying Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen.

“It’s popular now a days to say ICE is bad, but there is no better representation of American values right now than what ICE is,” Wolf says.

ICE, “as an equal opportunity employer,” accepts “all levels of experience and education, from low to very low, and actively welcome those with diagnosed anger issues,” she states.

The clip then shows multiple actors portraying ICE agents explaining why they joined the agency.

“I wanted to join the regular police, but they told me they wouldn’t take someone who was already under arrest,” one actor said, while another actor simply said: “Animal Control said nope.”

“The TSA rejected me because I kept asking if there was something called sky jail,” another added.

Wolf reappears at the end of the video and says alongside the other agents, “Take it from me, no organization is better than ICE is,” before shooting their guns toward the sky.
