'We care': Protesters of family separations flood U.S. cities

Abolish Ice

Mayor Bill de Blasio on Friday joined the growing list of Democrats who've publicly signaled their support for abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement, calling the agency a "punitive, negative tool for division" that is "no longer acceptable".

In a couple of weekend tweets, Trump praised ICE as "one of the smartest, toughest and most spirited law enforcement groups" and said there's "Zero chance" that the border security agency will be abolished.

Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) became the first US senator to join the growing ranks of progressives who want to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Kirsten Gillibrand's remarks in a CNN interview on Thursday. "I know people aren't sympathetic to deportation officers, but they have a rough time with this too and I think more so under this administration".

Buch said some law enforcement agencies either don't want to work with HSI or they want "to minimize ICE's involvement in the joint operations". "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. Ocasio-Cortez is a self-described "democratic-socialist", who ran on abolishing ICE. "And the fact that they operate without the accountability of the Department of Justice is extremely concerning to us all", Ocasio-Cortez told The Intercept.

The heightened attention to ICE has also come from people like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the upset victor of a New York City primary earlier this week, who has led the calls to abolish the agency and reorganize immigration enforcement in the US. Protesters have rallied across the U.S, demanding that the agency be abolished - calls that have been echoed by politicians.

The analysis found that during the first full 14 months of the Trump administration, 69 percent of undocumented immigrants arrested by ICE agents had a criminal record.

However, the viral video was enough to convince one company to stop doing business with Ettel who sold cannabis products for dogs. All the Moms reached out to the San Francisco police but did not immediately hear back.

Indeed, the would-be presidential candidates haven't yet detailed what they propose in ICE's place.

For Pocan, Trump's call on Sunday to return immigrants who enter the country illegally without judicial proceedings was the last straw.

Former Vice President Joe Biden voted as a senator from DE for the 2002 law, the Homeland Security Act, that paved the way for ICE to replace the Immigration and Naturalization Service.

Recently, "Occupy ICE" protests have sprung up across the nation.

President Donald Trump took to Twitter Saturday morning to attack Democrats over increased calls among the left ranks of the party for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency to be eliminated.
