"We are a major country with major borders".

Agents from the Department of Homeland Security's Federal Protective Service (FPS) moved into the protest camp shortly after 5 a.m. local time to reopen the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility that has been blocked by demonstrators since last week, FPS spokesman Robert Sperling said on Thursday. "ICE is simply not doing that", Blumenauer said.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic socialist candidate who achieved a shocking win Tuesday over Rep. Joe Crowley in the New York Democratic primary, touted the abolition of ICE as a key platform in her campaign.

Almost 540 children have been reunited, according to the US government. Kirsten Gillibrand and Elizabeth Warren, who have called for either abolishing or replacing ICE in the wake of widespread criticism over its enforcement of Trump's "zero-tolerance" immigration policies.

Last evacuees return home in Lake County as Yolo-Napa fire grows
Tamara Estes' family cabin, which her parents had built in 1963 using wood and rocks from the land, was among the homes destroyed. Hundreds of residents on the fire's southern edge have been told that they may have to evacuate their homes if the blaze spreads.


ICE's statement on today said, "Due to attempts by certain groups to disrupt ICE operations through spreading misinformation and advocating violence against ICE employees, ICE made a decision to suspend transport of detainees for the foreseeable future".

"I believe that it has become a deportation force". "I think you should separate the criminal justice from the immigration issues, and I think you should reimagine ICE under a new agency with a very different mission and take those two missions out".

But the tweet falls in line with what has been a public relations-style push by ICE and its allies in the Department of Homeland Security to downplay the imagery of family separations resulting from the administration's "zero-tolerance" immigration policy.

"HSI's investigations have been perceived as targeting undocumented aliens, instead of the transnational criminal organizations that facilitate cross border crimes impacting our communities and national security", the 19 agents, who are members of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), wrote in a letter first reported by the Texas Observer.
