Arrested Outside Dallas ICE Building During Protest

Arrested Outside Dallas ICE Building During Protest

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'.

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. Trumps public support of ICE came as tens of thousands marched in cities across the country to protest a "zero tolerance" policy under which all adults who crossed the border illegally were referred for criminal prosecution, resulting in more than 2,500 children being separated from adult relatives.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the 28-year-old former bartender who suddenly rose to prominence after defeating Rep. Joe Crowley in a New York Democratic congressional primary last week, started the calls to abolish ICE. "If people are willing to show up in the streets for something, they're going to vote for it". "The radical left Dems want you out".

The letter informed the Trump administration that stepped-up enforcement against families seeking asylum in the USA had detracted from the fight against violent criminal elements.

Ocasio-Cortez is one of many progressives who has called for ICE to be abolished.

An unspecified number of protesters were taken into custody as federal law enforcement personnel cleared a path that includes the facility's driveway and front door, Sperling said. Since then, calls to abolish ICE have grown from a whisper to a shout. "They were threatening our family members", one officer said, declining to elaborate. This came on the same day as a protest in downtown Dallas of family separations at the U.S. -Mexico border.

For his part, President Trump unsurprisingly rejected any suggestion that he would entertain either notion. This week, the Texas Observer reported that 19 special agents in charge at ICE's Homeland Security Investigations, or HSI, branch wrote a letter proposing restructuring ICE and creating two separate agencies.

On Monday, Wisconsin Democratic Rep. Mark Pocan of Wisconsin introduced the first-ever bill to abolish the immigration enforcement agency. The back of her jacket said, "I really don't care, do U?" and it became a rallying cry for protesters Saturday. "These are the guys that go in and take MS-13 and they take them out because they are much tougher than MS-13 like by a factor of 10..."

I think everyone understands that "abolish ICE" means no enforcement of immigration laws. He's being named the deputy director of ICE and also will serve as its acting director, Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen said in a statement on Saturday.

A tent encampment erected by protesters that prompted the closure of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement headquarters in Portland, Oregon, was being dismantled by federal law enforcement agents.
