These Democrats want to abolish ICE

Homeland Security dismantles 'Occupy ICE' encampment in Detroit

Homeland Security dismantles 'Occupy ICE' encampment in Detroit

"To the great and fearless men and women of ICE, do not worry or lose your spirit", Trump wrote in one tweet.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who beat Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley of NY in the primary last week, ran on a platform of abolishing the agency, and so far, more lawmakers have echoed her call. "You get rid of ICE, youre going to have a country that youre going to be afraid to walk out of your house".

"No special agent is going to stop me from talking".

Fueling the Democrats' calls to move to abolish the agency is the surprise victory of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic socialist candidate who beat Rep. Joe Crowley in the New York Democratic primary. Trump branded the filibuster rule in the Senate requiring most significant legislation to need 60 votes for passage "ridiculous" and called for its abolition, but both Republican and Democratic lawmakers alike have rejected calls to do so.

"Referring to Schwab's description of the statements in question, ICE spokeswoman Liz Johnson told CNN, 'We disagree with Mr. Schwab on this issue and dispute his characterization".

Before we go further we should get some facts straight. "For instance, you shouldn't be protesting ICE about family separation because that happens on the border".

Trump signed an order meant to end the separations last week, and a federal judge ordered Tuesday that all separated families should be reunited within 30 days.

"But what I think it allows us to do is talk about the facts", he said. "I believe that it has become a deportation force". "Build something that actually works".

Yet other Democrats fear that such a position is fraught for the party as Trump continues to paint immigrants as risky to put his political rivals on the defensive. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., during Congress unsuccessful effort to pass comprehensive immigration reform in 2013-2014. We reorganize government all the time, creating some agencies and eliminating others.

In his Fox interview, which was pre-recorded, Trump repeated a claim he tweeted on Saturday, that Ice had "liberated" towns from the MS-13 gang, which Trump almost always invokes in discussions of immigration despite the gang's irrelevance to the core debate. The president has twice visited that region to discuss the dangers of criminal immigrants, whom he has called "animals". So fearless! The radical left Dems want you out. Kamala Harris, has said that officials should "re-examine" ICE and "think about starting from scratch".

"We are always going to need immigration enforcement", Klobuchar said on ABC's "This Week". These are thoughts once relegated to the outermost fringes of the Democratic Party.

But the truth is that abolishing ICE isn't that radical.

"But the ‘abolish ICE debate oversimplifies everything", the aide said. If you get rid of it, then what?

The agency absorbed numerous investigative and detention and deportation duties of the U.S. Customs Service and former Immigration and Naturalization Service. She added, "Instead of being insulted with politically-motivated attacks, the men and women of ICE should be praised for risking life and limb every day in the name of national security and public safety". ICE is not reasonable law enforcement. A media relations contact with ICE's Detroit field office did not respond to email and telephone inquiries about the impact of the protest.
