LA City Councilman Calls for End to ICE

ICE names new acting director amid immigration turmoil

Kirsten Gillibrand - The Senator from NY and likely 2020 presidential candidate said that ICE "has become a deportation force, and I think you should separate out the criminal justice from the immigration issues".

Sanders is the latest high profile politician on the left to call for scrutiny of the agencies responsible for enforcing immigration laws.

The president called Democrats "weak" on immigration and twice mentioned the November elections - where immigration and his administration's "zero tolerance" policy at the border will be a top issue.

In January 2017, the president signed an executive order to increase the agency's staffing by 10,000 employees. Penn found widespread support for the fundamental provisions of the immigration bills, based on Trump's "four pillars", that were rejected by the House of Representatives. And then ICE would be abolished at the end of that time with the best alternative being chosen. That was the right vote. "They have strayed so far from the interests of the American people and the interests of humanity", she continued. "While some people today are calling for the abolition of this great agency, in this White House, let me be clear we are with you 100% -and as the president said last night we will always stand proudly with the courageous hero's of ICE and Border Patrol", Pence said. In an interview with Fox News that aired Sunday, Trump said he was thrilled that some Democrats were adopting this new rallying cry and signaled he would use it against them as often as possible. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Sen.

But Rasmussen Reports says its survey of 1,000 likely voters, conducted June 27-28, shows there's "not much support", even among Democrats, for abolishing ICE.

It's not as if ICE is some longstanding agency that should be considered untouchable. The agency has become a lightning rod under the Trump administration. Thirty-six percent said they should be allowed to stay. "They can not be ordered by the White House to basically ignore their mission and the law, and that's what's happening".

"The White House tweeted at Harris, writing, ".@SenKamalaHarris, why are you supporting the animals of MS-13? And that's a problem, many say. "This is one of many reasons we fly these flags upside down", protester Michael Mihalakis (known as Meko Haze) posted on his Facebook account Thursday.

The agency, created in 2003, had previously been focused on deporting undocumented immigrants with serious or violent criminal records. "We need it gone", said organizer Carolina Bortolleto of the Connecticut Immigrant Rights Alliance. "It's time to reform and refocus the agency under the DHS to be exclusively focused on border security and ensuring those who intend to immigrate to our country have a compassionate system that allows for a fair process to be followed".

The protest - and the Police Department's response to it - may put Kenney in a politically precarious position a year before he runs for reelection.

- Justice Democrats (@justicedems) July 3, 2018 This is a good statement.

Future of immigration agency up for debate.

Democrats have broadly bristled at the Trump administration's tactics and decision to prioritize deportation of anybody in the country illegally. But he said it's "heartening" that immigration policy in general "is at the forefront of the conversation ahead of 2020".

Many Vermonters of different political stripes would likely be irked by border authorities setting up a checkpoint almost 100-miles from Canada, he said.
