The movement to 'Abolish ICE' is heating up -- and going mainstream

Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agents arrested some 100 people at Corso's in Sandusky as part of a large-scale immigration investigation Letter: Criminal investigations hampered by deportations, detentions

President Donald Trump fired off several tweets Saturday morning showing his support for the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE), calling it "one of the smartest, toughest, and most spirited law enforcement groups".

That idea was the topic of two Saturday morning tweets from Trump, who reassured "the fearless men and women of ICE, do not worry or lose your spirit" and said they were doing a "fantastic job". Zero chance, It will never happen!'

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.

Kirsten Gillibrand's remarks in a CNN interview on Thursday.

Both Democrats' comments came after Tuesday's primary win by progressive, Democratic Socialist candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over Democratic incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley for New York's 14th congressional district. "They can't collect and gather information to go after people who are truly problems". But local organizers are shouldering on-the-ground planning, many of them women relying on informal networks established during worldwide women's marches on Trump's inauguration and its anniversary.

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.

A week ago, Trump signed an order ending the separation of families, but some 2,000 children have yet to be reunited with family members, and immigration lawyers say the process of doing so will be long and chaotic.

ICE operates under Nielsen's Department of Homeland Security.

He also said both sides agreed to connect the Belt and Road initiative to the EU's development strategies. As tensions continue to escalate, trade experts warn there are fewer options to resolve the dispute.

He is also just the second African player to register two goals in two World Cup matches since Cameroon's Roger Milla in 1990. They're going to defend, and they're going to do it as a team for the entire game.

Trump argued that if 'you get rid of ICE you're going to have a county where you're afraid to walk out of your house'. "That being said, ICE remains committed to performing its immigration enforcement mission consistent with federal law and agency policy".

Trump told ICE officials to "not worry or lose spirit" despite protests about the administration's immigration policies.

A visit to the nation's southern border prompted a federal lawmaker from Wisconsin to announce this week he will introduce a bill that would dismantle U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

He wrote in another tweet: "To the great and courageous men and women of ICE, do not worry or lose your spirit".

"They have strayed so far from the interests of the American people and the interests of humanity".

ICE spokeswoman Liz Johnson condemned calls to abolish the agency as "dangerously misguided" in a statement Friday. "You abolish ICE now, you still have the same President with the same failed policies, whatever you replace it with is just still (going to) reflect what this President wants to do".

At the Working Families Party, Stamp said she sees the activists taking a position that "offers space" to other Democrats activists know won't agree with them.

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