Gubernatorial candidate and former Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon condemned ICE as a "terrorist organization" in an appearance Thursday at St. Paul and St. Andrew United Methodist Church on the Upper West Side, the NY Post reports. Nixon was there to support Debora Vazquez-Barrios, an undocumented Guatemalan immigrant and mother of two who fears deportation under Trump's "zero tolerance" immigration policy.

Nixon's comments came on the heels of her appearance on The View, where she called for the abolishment of ICE.

"We don't need ICE," Nixon said on air. "They have strayed so far from the interests of the American people and the interests of humanity. We need to abolish it."

According to Nixon, issuing driver's licenses to those in the country illegally is an excellent way to support undocumented immigrants—ICE often seizes immigrants during routine traffic stops. "This is a concrete thing we can do to fight the Trump agenda, not just rhetorically, but with policy," Nixon explained while on The View.

Governor Andrew Cuomo, while outspoken in his criticism of ICE, has stopped short of calling for its abolishment. In April, Cuomo issued a cease-and-desist letter to the agency, accusing them of making unlawful arrests and using "aggressive tactics" in raids across New York State; he threatened to sue ICE if the arrests continued. And last night, Cuomo ordered all agencies in New York that received migrant children detained by ICE to reveal the children's names, names of their parents, and more information pertaining to their separation, or face legal action.

ICE, short for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, is a relatively new government agency; it was formed in 2003 as a response to the 9/11 attacks.

Nixon has been hitting Cuomo hard since launching her campaign in March, criticizing his handling of the MTA and failure to legalize marijuana, but he still holds a significant lead over her in the race for governor, according to a recent Siena College poll.
