A Democratic candidate for congress in Arkansas claimed complete ignorance of the growing movement within his party to abolish U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency, or ICE
Clarke Tucker, an Arkansas state lawmaker who will be on the ballot against incumbent Republican Rep. French Hill this November, was asked about ICE over the weekend at the Families Belong Together protest in Little Rock. Though immigration was the focus of the event, Tucker said he hadn't "spent any time" thinking about whether ICE should be abolished.

"I haven't had a chance to look at that, I don't know what it is," Tucker said during the brief interaction with a conservative tracker from America Rising.
After Tucker was told that the push to abolish ICE had recently gotten support from Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D., N.Y.), he maintained that he had no information on what it means.
"That's not something I've spent any time thinking about," he said. "I don't have any information about it."
Tucker's campaign did not respond to an inquiry into whether he really has no position on the issue.
