As popular as open borders might be in certain already deep blue congressional districts, it's likely to turn off voters who said very clearly in 2016 they want border security and enforcement of immigration and citizenship laws.

Trump is responding to calls from some Democrats to abolish the agency charged with detaining and deporting unauthorized immigrants. Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) and Kristen Gillibrand (D., N.Y.) called for ICE to be abolished. Kirsten Gillibrand and Massachusetts Sen.

In Washington, U.S. Reps.

Warren called for ICE to be completely replaced as she spoke at a Keeping Families Together rally in Boston on Saturday. ICE was created in 2003 as part of a federal government reorganization following the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

President Donald Trump is defending U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement during an appearance at a "Salute to Service" charity dinner in West Virginia.

Who wants to abolish the ICE?

Clinton left office in 2001, in the far-away pre-progressive days of the Democratic Party.

Republican gubernatorial candidate Adam Putnam, the state agricultural commissioner, defended ICE. They say, quote, "abolishing ICE without changing President Trump's disastrous immigration policy will not solve the problem". But at the heart of much of the furore is a belief that this is the government agency that is separating families at the US-Mexico border. But it plans to continue prosecuting illegal border crossers and, when those bring children illegally into the US, will "detain families together during the pendency of immigration proceedings", according to an administration court filing in California.

ICE protesters arrested at Statue of Liberty
National Park Service spokesman Jerry Willis told The Associated Press the individuals were taken into custody around 2:30 p.m. So far, it is unclear whether the woman who climbed the massive statue was involved in the protest, but many are assuming so.


Winter Park businessman Chris King "believes any comprehensive immigration reform effort should take a hard look at real reforms to ICE as an agency", a spokesman said.

A spokeswoman for ICE told The Eagle on Friday that elected officials would need to formally request access to a facility through Homeland Security's Office of Legislative Affairs.

"When it comes to the separation of immigrant kids from their parents, American voters are clearly appalled", he said in a statement.

O'Rourke: I mentioned the millions more who are working the most backbreaking, the toughest, the crappiest jobs in this country that no person born in the United States of America is willing to take right now.

"Abolish ICE" sounds simple and straightforward. "Maybe, maybe not", Hader said. Earlier Friday, she went inside the facility at 555 N. Woodlawn, but said no one was there.

"ICE is a fascist organization that has been committing unjustifiable violence on brown families", Sam Hausman said Tuesday morning after he slept in a tent in front of the ICE building there. Instead, she called for Congress to pass broad immigration reform. The debate over the agency's future follows the widespread outcry in recent weeks after the Trump administration separated more than 2,000 migrant children from their parents, a decision that which he has since reversed. Democrats agree by a narrower 44% to 36% margin.
