Abolish ICE

First candidate to propose this (meaningfully) gets my vote, unless they're beaten by someone demanding a war crimes tribunal.

SEATTLE (AP) — The chief counsel for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Seattle has been charged with stealing immigrants’ identities.

Raphael A. Sanchez, who resigned from the agency effective Monday, faces one count of aggravated identity theft and another of wire fraud in a charging document filed Monday in U.S. District Court.

Prosecutors with the Justice Department’s Public Integrity Section allege that Sanchez stole the identities of seven people “in various stages of immigration proceedings” to defraud credit card companies including American Express, Bank of America and Capital One.

Idiot could have robbed them all blind and probably even gotten a personal slave or two (they're all the rage now). Mistake was fucking with the credit card companies.
