Mayor de Blasio joins protesters in call to abolish ICE

Feds begin removing Occupy ICE protesters in Portland

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.

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". "ICE has lost trust".

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of NY said Immigration and Customs Enforcement, known as ICE, has "become a deportation force", telling CNN late Thursday "you should get rid of it, start over, re-imagine it and build something that actually works".

The separation of more than 2,000 children from their parents and guardians at the U.S. -Mexico border has sparked worldwide outrage and growing calls in the United States for the abolition of the immigration agency on the front lines of the dispute.

Finding the door open, he went inside and saw the family members hanging from the grill ceiling. Seven of the victims are women, including three teenagers, while four are men.

The Democratic calls to scrap the agency underscore the balancing act the party is facing on immigration issues. Among them were Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the 28-year-old Democratic socialist who upset Congressman Joseph Crowley, in a primary election, and senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Elizabeth Warren. Cortez was among the more vocal candidates calling for ICE to be shut down. "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. However, agents did not touch protest camps on properties adjacent to the ICE building.

"We need to rebuild our immigration system from top to bottom, starting by replacing ICE with something that reflects our morality", Warren said at a rally in Boston.

"As U.S. Customs and Border Protection Acting Deputy Commissioner, Ron has more than 30 years of experience working in law enforcement and protecting our nation", Nielsen said in a statement.

Angel Padilla, policy director at the grassroots group Indivisible, said ICE "terrorizes communities" and that Gillibrand's move "demonstrates where the progressive base is".

"It's much more aggressive in who it's going after throughout the country", said the Democrat whose district includes Iowa and Lafayette counties.

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

"This is the first time in my life I've come out to protest". But the family separation policy has been a watershed for attracting a broader spectrum of demonstrators, she said. "We know that when people have a effect for illegal activity they do less of it and that's what we're trying to accomplish here".
