Comedian Michelle Wolf posted a new clip Friday that pokes some serious fun at the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE) by recognizing the terrorizing effect its practices have had on immigrant communities.

Riffing on the idea of a fictional campaign called “ICE is …”—not to be confused with the militant Islamic State, or ISIS—the satirical segment from her Netflix series, “The Break With Michelle Wolf,” features wannabe ICE agents explaining what the agency means to them.

“I joined because I wanted to secure the border, but then I found out that’s actually border patrol’s job,” says one fictional agent.

Another declares, “I joined to capture those MS-13 animals who are infesting America. I haven’t seen any yet, but I’ve heard about ’em.” A third brags, “We’re an age-old tradition, dating all the way back to 2003.”


In the fake recruitment video, Wolf appears as Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielson. “We accept all levels of experience and education, from low to very low, and actively welcome those with diagnosed anger issues,” she announces, as a mock ICE agent rips a mannequin baby from a mother’s arms in the background.

With machine guns blazing, the video closes with the caption, “Apply now, you sick fucks.”
