Some Democrats With Eye on 2020 Say, ‘Abolish ICE’

When Martinez tried to enter she claims she was pushed back by an ICE agent and not allowed

Addressing a citizenship event at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, New York City mayor Bill de Blasio praised demonstrators for protesting against the Trump administration's immigration policies and re-upped his support for abolishing ICE.

Earlier on Saturday morning, Trump addressed growing calls to abolish ICE in a pair of tweets, saying they had "zero chance".

Later, de Blasio tweeted his support for abolishing ICE.

In an interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo Thursday, Gillibrand said that the agency should be "reimagined" with a "very different mission".

And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, whose shocking primary victory against incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley heralded a new progressive push in the Democratic party, has been a vocal advocate of abolishing the agency.

Cavani on the double as Uruguay sink Ronaldo's Portugal
Ronaldo was involved somewhat in Portugal's goal, even if he didn't come close to getting a touch on the cross. The quarter-final match between Uruguay and Portugal will take place in Sochi on Sunday (4am AEST).

"I'm not leaving this fight", he said, adding that as a civilian he'll be able to say a lot more than he can now.

The activists rallying under the moniker Occupy ICE PDX - PDX is Portland's airport code - want to abolish ICE and end the Trump administration's zero-tolerance immigration policy. "I don't think ICE today is working as intended", she said. Ocasio-Cortez is a self-described "democratic-socialist", who ran on abolishing ICE. "We know that when people have a outcome for illegal activity they do less of it and that's what we're trying to accomplish here".

"We appreciate that these individuals have expressed an interest in and concern with the critical issue of securing our nation's borders and enforcing our immigration laws", Houlton said.

Singer John Legend serenaded the crowd and Democratic politicians who have clashed with Trump had strong words for the president, including U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters who called for his impeachment.

"But what I think it allows us to do is talk about the facts", he said.

Trump warns Harley-Davidson: 'We won't forget'
Harley-Davidson said the move overseas was to avoid European Union tariffs, not to sell in the U.S. market. Trump says in tweets Tuesday that the company had already announced it was closing a Kansas City plant.

More: ICE on ice?

A federal judge ruled Tuesday that immigration authorities must unite families separated along the border within 30 days.

His proposal would create a commission, the objective of which would be to issue recommendations to Congress and identify the essential functions of ICE that can be returned to other federal agencies.

CBS has identified the men as agents from the Department of Homeland Security inspector general's office.

Prince William's "historic" visit to the Middle East
CNN reports that William is also expected to visit Jerusalem's Old City, the Mount of Olives and the Church of St. He'll be here to see a little bit of the country and to get to meet some of the people here.

President Donald Trump recently reversed course and signed an executive order aimed at keeping undocumented families together following public outcry over the separation of parents and children at the border.
