Trump attacks ‘abolish ICE’ movement on the morning of massive nationwide protest

Their letter arrived amid calls from progressive activists and mainstream Democrats to abolish ICE. Among them were Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the 28-year-old who upset Rep. Joseph Crowley, D-N.Y., in a primary election Tuesday, and Sens.

And Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren called for "replacing ICE" in a rally on Saturday.

Speaking in an interview with Fox News' Maria Bartiromo that is to air Sunday, the president also said he believed calls to abolish ICE would result in Democrat losses at the polls. The administration said on Friday it would no longer "separate families but detain families together during the pendency of immigration proceedings".

Agents who work for the Immigration and Customs Enforcement in California have found that they're so unpopular even other law enforcement officers want nothing to do with them, the Los Angeles Times reports.

But at least she's speaking of the ridiculousness of abolishing ICE. "And we need to build into any new structure the ability for ICE as an agency or whatever the new agency is, to be accountable back to congress".

Second, the people proposing that we abolish ICE aren't saying immigration laws shouldn't be enforced.

"We saved 904 children through our investigations from being exploited, being raped, being molested, being filmed", he pointed out, according to the Examiner.

"The Democrats have literally moved the immigration debate to the terrain of: Should the country enforce our immigrations laws - yes or no?"


"The men and women of ICE are doing what they are told", Sandweg said. By contrast, 20 percent wanted family separation through arrests and jailing of parents.

With the laser-like focus of the Occupy Wall Street Movement, those opposed to almost all forms of immigration enforcement took to the streets this weekend to protest, well, just about everything under the sun.

Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), who was among a group of roughly 600 people arrested this week following a protest inside the Hart Senate Office Building in Washington, DC, appeared on CNN's this morning and explained why ICE as it now exists is untenable.

"Do you think ICE should be abolished?"

However, Homan impressed that separating children from their parents has absolutely nothing to do with what ICE does.

"Because of (ICE's) reputation, no one wants to talk to them because they are afraid they are going to be deported", he said. "For instance, you shouldn't be protesting ICE about family separation because that happens on the border".

Hundreds of thousands of protesters gathered on Saturday across America in the latest act of mass resistance against Trump's immigration policies.
