Homeland Security dismantles 'Occupy ICE' encampment in Detroit

"The Democrats are making a strong push to abolish ICE, one of the smartest, toughest and most spirited law enforcement groups of men and women that I have ever seen". But Williams added that ICE, "instead of becoming something that keeps terrorists and bad guys and drug dealers out, has become like an enforcement force, if you will, that goes and raids homes, raids jobs, makes people uncomfortable in their own land". Senators Gillibrand and Warner have both joined the chorus, while Cynthia Nixon, who is running for the Governor's seat of NY, is calling ICE a "terrorist organization".

On CNN, Sen. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill., said on Sunday: "I think there's a lot of other things we can do before we get to that point, first of which, which is you have got someone in the White House who has these policies which are horrendous, which he still hasn't fixed".

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

Gillibrand called for an all-out elimination of ICE.

The investigators asked for ICE to be dissolved in a letter to letter to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, the Texas Observer reported. On the evening of June 28, all three of the network's prime-time shows aired segments attacking the Abolish ICE movement, as did Fox & Friends the next morning.

Homeland security investigators want out of ICE.

Trump to announce Supreme Court pick on July 9
Supreme Court vacancies have become a key voting issue in the USA presidential election. "He said he'd like the job", Trump said. White House aides said other names are in the mix as well. "As I said, I'm looking specifically at two women".

The Obama administration aimed to narrow ICEs mission by targeting its limited enforcement resources to violent criminals while seeking to provide deportation relief to others. Calling for such a radical change in immigration policy would depress Democratic turnout and could energize Republicans in districts that national Dems are counting on to win to retake the House in November. "That's the problem; it's the Trump policy that's the problem at our border". Homan also said the protesters "need to educate themselves" about ICE's activities and that they are seeking "better rules for illegal alien families than we have for USA citizen families". "Build something that actually works". "We need it gone", said Bortolleto.

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.

Discussion over eliminating the agency has ramped up this week and, in some cases, is being linked to border issues and the separation of immigrant children from their families. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., during Congress unsuccessful effort to pass comprehensive immigration reform in 2013-2014. "We should create something better, something different".

Trump on Saturday claimed he has "watched ICE liberate towns from the grasp of MS-13". The president has twice visited that region to discuss the dangers of criminal immigrants, whom he has called "animals".

"You got nearly 70% of the country who say we should not abolish ICE", she said. "Next it will be all police". "Zero chance, It will never happen!" Kamala Harris, has said that officials should "re-examine" ICE and "think about starting from scratch".

"We are always going to need immigration enforcement, Martha, we know that". These are thoughts once relegated to the outermost fringes of the Democratic Party.
