  • White House Twitter Account, in Rare Broadside, Attacks 2 Senators Over ICE

The White House is using its official Twitter handle to target Democratic lawmakers who have criticized President Donald Trump's immigration policies, drawing complaints that government resources are being used to undercut potential 2020 presidential rivals. "Why are you supporting criminals moving weapons, drugs, and victims across our nation's borders?" claims another aimed at Warren. "You must not know that ICE serves as the leading USA law enforcement agency responsible for the fight against it".

Both Warren and Harris have called for the "abolishment" of the department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Some Democrats suggested that the tweets from an official government account might have violated the Hatch Act, which generally forbids the use of government resources for political activity. Kamala Harris (D-CA) for "supporting the animals of MS-13".

Harris quickly fired back at the White House's allegations, saying that during her career as a prosecutor she routinely "went after gangs and transnational criminals".

The White House did not respond to a request for comment. "That's being a leader on public safety".

Indeed, a court-imposed July 10 deadline for the Trump administration to reunite the more than 2,000 children it forcibly separated from their parents as a result of Trump's "zero tolerance" policy is rapidly approaching.

NBC journalist Andrea Mitchell called the tweets legally and ethically "questionable," and claimed the characterizations of the policies extolled by Warren and Harris were incorrect. Trump has repeated it in subsequent speeches. Kamala Harris, D-California, and Elizabeth Warren, D-Massachusetts. Nor have they made statements in favor of MS-13.

The personalized attacks marks an interesting turn for the White House's official account, which has traditionally refrained from posting overtly partisan content or criticizing public figures.

In the wake of disturbing family separations at the border, Democratic lawmakers called for the abolishment of ICE - and the two senators backed up the protest.

"I think there's no question that we've got to critically reexamine ICE and its role and the way that it is being administered and the work it is doing", she told Meet the Press. "And we need to probably think about starting from scratch because there's a lot that is wrong with the way that it's conducting itself".

Sen. Kamala Harris is "supporting the animals of MS-13".
