Bill De Blasio Calls for ABOLISHMENT of 'BROKEN' ICE

Homeland Security dismantles 'Occupy ICE' encampment in Detroit

The US Immigration and Customs Enforcement has announced a new acting director amid the ongoing turmoil as President Donald Trump blasts the Democrats for wanting to abolish the agency. Trump last week issued an executive order that would end the practice of separating families alleged to have entered the country illegally and replace it with the detention of children with their parents until the end of their immigration proceedings. "It's insulting that a member of Congress would say "abolish ICE" when we're enforcing the laws that Congress enacted". Elected Democrats are also beginning to endorse the movement.

This week, activists picked up even more momentum. 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.

The call is becoming a litmus test for Democratic candidates. Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris, along with other Senate Democrats, wrote to the department's inspector general asking for an investigation into Schwab's resignation after the former spokesman said he resigned over misleading statements from agency officials in connection with an ICE raid.

Some Democrats With Eye on 2020 Say, ‘Abolish ICE’
Earlier on Saturday morning, Trump addressed growing calls to abolish ICE in a pair of tweets , saying they had "zero chance". Maxine Waters who called for his impeachment. "But what I think it allows us to do is talk about the facts", he said.

The investigators asked for ICE to be dissolved in a letter to letter to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, the Texas Observer reported. It has no accountability.

"So today, we're going to be marching with the follow demands: one - complete abolition of immigrations and customs enforcement in our prison industrial complex", one of the organizers shouted into a bullhorn. "Deputy Commissioner Vitiello brings to ICE the vision and leadership needed to continue the exceptional work the agency is doing to accomplish its crucial national security and public safety missions".

The announcement comes as Trump slammed the Democrats via Twitter for wanting to get rid of ICE.

Europe migrants: Italy warns passport-free travel at risk
Anti-migrant parties - and governments in Hungary and Italy - have been fomenting public fears of foreigners. Like everything to do with migrants in Europe lately, even this meeting is proving controversial.

In his tweets, Trump praised ICE for working to "liberate" Long Island from the grasp of MS-13, a transnational gang. ICE is under scrutiny as President Trump's "zero-tolerance" policies at the southern border have led to family separations, ultimately sparking nationwide protests Saturday. The lawyer sustained a broken foot and several cuts.

At that point, the conversation broke into a lot of back-and-forth between Williams and co-host Lisa Boothe over whether ICE under Trump does the same job in the same way as it did under President Obama. The retirement of Thomas D. Homan, who had been acting as chief of ICE, became effective Saturday. First, ICE is not "the border enforcement agency".

Trump, however, in repeated tweets has defended the agency, saying Saturday, "To the great and courageous men and women of ICE, do not worry or lose your spirit".
