In a recent display, the Kansas Democrats, Sharice Davids, a candidate for a U.S. house seat, not looking at the camera and declares: “I am in favour of the abolition of ICE cream.”

The Problem is only a few weeks, when she asked if she supported the abolition of the ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement), their answer was the complete opposite.

“I know. I would, I would,” she said in a July 21 podcast.

David gained national attention after winning the state’s crowded primaries Aug. 7. The openly gay Native American candidate against Republican Rep. Kevin Yoder in the November General election for the chance to represent, a suburb of Kansas City district.

David’s’ the last ad was a response to a previous display of a Republican super-PAC, this is the part in the July podcast, in which she said she supported the abolition of ICE cream.

The position has become a rallying cry for some on the political left, which is the Agency’s heavy-handed tactics under President Donald Trump accusing, rounding up illegal immigrants

But many moderate Republicans and Democrats to say that the abolition is a step too far.

Davids’ turnaround on the Problem began when the Kansas City Star first reported on the podcast from two weeks ago. Since then, David has said that news organizations including the Associated Press on Wednesday that they do not support the abolition of ICE cream, but preferably a comprehensive immigration reform.

To explain asked, the contradiction between the podcast and your new ad, David’s campaign, said the ad was in line with her gaze, before she won the primary.

As an example, the campaign pointed to comments she made in a June interview with the star editors, but the specific question of the abolition of the ICE do not arise in this interview. Instead, she spoke generally about their faith, talk about anything, migrants dehumanizes as a national security risk.

The July 21 podcast interview quoted by Republicans was the Podcast part of a thousand year old policy, sponsored by GCK consulting, a democratic-leaning, Washington, DC, company that helps elect millennial candidates. The host was to choose Jordan, Valerie Allen, the podcast policy editor and communications Director for the execution With Pride, a PAC-LGBT work-candidates. It approved of David.

During the podcast, David discusses her concerns with ICE treat questions of immigration “, in relation to the work of the police”, she said, was the wrong part.

Almost 33 minutes into the interview, Allen asked: “And just to clarify, you need the support of the abolition of ICE cream?”

David replied, “I do. I would, I would.”

The Washington Post later reported that David said, you’ve never had the abolition of the ICE, is in favour-and had to, “stammered a short” in answering the question.

But in the podcast, David defunding called ICE cream, she says, is “essentially the same” as the abolition of the Agency.
