A new poll from YouGov shows that Americans prefer Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to the so-called Democratic "squad" comprised of Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA).

The data shows that overall, 42 percent of Americans have a favorable view of ICE - an agency Ocasio-Cortez wants to abolish. Meanwhile, Ocasio-Cortez only has a 33 percent favorability rating, Omar holds a 25 percent rating, Tlaib sits at 24 percent and Pressley only has a 22 percent favorability rating.

43 percent of Americans also said they oppose AOC's plan to abolish ICE altogether. The agency also has a higher rating than Democratic presidential candidates Kamala Harris (36 percent) and Robert Francis O'Rourke (33 percent).

President Trump also holds a 43 percent favorability rating among Americans.
