In 'Stunning Indictment', ICE Officers Call for Own Agency to Be Dissolved Amid Growing Outrage Over Immigration Policy

Homeland Security dismantles 'Occupy ICE' encampment in Detroit

The officers suggested that ICE be dissolved and its work divided among two new separate agencies, one focused on HSI and one focused on Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO)-the unit which has enforced President Donald Trump's hardline immigration policy. "Sure there are. It's a reaction to the frustration that they see about this horrendous policy that is ripping families part", she said.

ICE, which is housed within the sprawling Department of Homeland Security, is responsible for arresting and deporting the estimated 11 million immigrants living in the country illegally.

It's unclear in what fever dream Trump witnessed ICE's liberation of town after town from the clutches of MS-13, but ICE's competency is not in dispute: they have none.

The Democrats calling for the elimination of ICE aren't obscure backbenchers. "I think they will never win another election, so I'm actually quite happy about it". His "zero tolerance policy" led officials to take more than 2,000 children from their parents as they tried to enter the country illegally, majority fleeing violence, persecution or economic collapse in their home countries. Senator Richard Blumenthal of CT told CBS's Face the Nation on Sunday "abolishing Ice will accomplish nothing unless we change the Trump policies".

"I think what has to change are the policies, and the people that are making these policies are making horrendous decisions like separating kids from their parents", she said. "We're doing what you told us to do".

Following a backlash over the now-defunct family separation policy was enacted at the USA southern border, Trump has increasingly cited crimes committed by undocumented immigrants as a pressing issue for the administration to deal with, despite statistics showing undocumented immigrants are less likely to commit crimes in America, The Washington Post reported at the beginning of the year.

"You abolish ICE now, you still have the same president", said Duckworth, adding that "there are a lot of other things we can do before we get to that point". The 28-year-old political newcomer who upset U.S. Rep. Joe Crowley in New York's Democrat primary says she brings an "urgency" to the fight for working families.

Her colleague, Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.), ran from the question of whether he favored abolishing ICE when asked directly.

"What we've been saying is ICE has become a rogue agency".

Moved by accounts of children separated from their parents at the US-Mexico border, marchers wore white, shook their fists in the air and carried signs reading: 'No more children in cages, ' and 'What's next? If you're a presidential candidate, you have to think carefully about, say, what health plan you favor, because you're going to have a mandate to do it if you get elected.

Establishing a small encampment for a prolonged occupation, several hundred protesters gathered late Monday afternoon outside the Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in Center City to demand an end to that agency's policies and cooperation between the city of Philadelphia and ICE.
