Similar protests have spread to about a dozen other cities, including Los Angeles, New York, Detroit, Philadelphia, and Louisville, Kentucky. Ocasio-Cortez is calling to abolish ICE as part of her campaign platform. It was created recently in the hysteria of anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant sentiments following 9/11.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the insurgent Democratic Socialist who won a stunning primary upset in NY last week, ran on this issue.
Sanders is said to be seriously considering another presidential run in 2020. On June 28 Sen.
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".
'The president's deeply immoral actions have made it obvious we need to rebuild our immigration system from top to bottom, ' the MA senator said. The previous weekend she was in Reno speaking at the Nevada state Democratic Party Convention. Congress must do what the American people want.
This is the fight that Trump wants to have, over security and law enforcement, rather than massive detention centers and frantic parents who can not find their children. For instance, a 2017 ICE raid in Long Island resulted in the arrest of 32 sex offenders, starting the deportation process.
"We have to have an agency at the border; I want that policy to reflect not what President Trump has done". In theory, this is different from Border Patrol, which is meant to patrol, well, the border, but technically can operate anywhere within 100 miles of the border. In the wake of the September 11 attacks, the George W.

"We tried to negotiate the opening of this door and we ended up making 7 arrests-didn't want to arrest anyone, but we had to,"Deputy Commissioner of Special Operations Dennis Wilson said". This latest dust-up reveals he may not be far off. Now, it is time to do what Americans overwhelmingly want: abolish the cruel, dysfunctional immigration system we have today and pass comprehensive immigration reform. More moderate Democrats understand that allowing their radical left arm to drive the agenda on this issue would be political suicide.
"Abolishing ICE would mean open borders because it would eliminate the agency responsible for removing people who enter or remain in our country illegally, including drug dealers; gang members; and child molesters, rapists, and other sex offenders", the release said.
