Some Democrats With Eye On 2020 Say: 'Abolish ICE'

Letter: Criminal investigations hampered by deportations, detentions Homeland Security dismantles 'Occupy ICE' encampment in Detroit

A loose but emerging coalition of politicians, activists and pro-immigrant protesters has deployed posters and slogans in its calls for the dismantling of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, which critics say has treated some would-be immigrants cruelly and unfairly.

That idea was the topic of two Saturday morning tweets from Trump, who reassured "the courageous men and women of ICE, do not worry or lose your spirit" and said they were doing a "fantastic job".

"We came to the United States seeking help, and we never imagined that this could happen".

Trump said on Twitter, one of several tweets he made over the weekend supporting the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.

And Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of NY told CNN late Thursday 'you should get rid of it, start over, reimagine it and build something that actually works'.

Rep. Mark Pocan, Wisconsin Democrat, said he will introduce legislation to abolish the agency.

"It has to be a unified front (in response to ICE)", Bermudez said, "because like when you have people chanting on the street, 'You will not replace us, ' they're not just talking about Jews".

"Well, I hope they keep thinking about it", Trump said.

France finish top of Group C
The duo will be looking to impress and convince Deschamps for a start in the round of sixteen contest against a side from Group D. The second half was a slight improvement on the opening 45 minutes, with substitute Nabil Fekir finally showing some positivity.

More than 700 planned marches are expected to draw hundreds of thousands of people across the country, from immigrant-friendly cities like Los Angeles and NY to conservative Appalachia and Wyoming under the banner Families Belong Together.

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. Thursday morning, dozens of officers in Department of Homeland Security in riot gear and began removing tents and other barriers.

"Because of (ICE's) reputation, no one wants to talk to them because they are afraid they are going to be deported", he said.

In major cities and tiny towns, thousands of marchers gathered across America, moved by accounts of children separated from their parents at the U.S. -Mexico border, in the latest act of mass resistance against President Donald Trump's immigration policies.

But Trump, who ran on a hard line immigration platform, eased the ICE guidelines in his first week in office, as his Administration declared no groups would be broadly granted exemptions to deportation laws.

About 100 protesters chanted "Abolish ICE!" as they marched through lower Manhattan on Friday.

'To the great and courageous men and women of ICE, do not worry or lose your spirit. "You are doing a fantastic job of keeping us safe by eradicating the worst criminal elements", he said. "I have literally never seen Americans show up for immigrants like this", said Jess Morales Rocketto, political director at the National Domestic Workers Alliance, which represents nannies, housekeepers and caregivers. ICE is not reasonable law enforcement.

During my trip to the southern border, it was clear that ICE, and its actions of hunting down and tearing apart families, has wreaked havoc on far too many people. 'So fearless! The radical left Dems want you out.
