Calls grow to abolish United States immigration agency

Posted July 02, 2018

"I don't think ICE today is working as intended", Gillibrand said on CNN Thursday evening.

As the Trump administration is stepping up mass deportations, separating families at the U.S. -Mexico border, and interning immigrant children in cages, calls to abolish ICE have spread from a grass-roots Twitter phenomenon to the political mainstream.

The focus was on the roughly 2,000 children who have been separated from their families under President Trump's "zero-tolerance" immigration policy. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) later in the week. "If people are willing to show up in the streets for something, they're going to vote for it".

Widely broadcast pictures of young children held in enclosures behind chain-link fences sparked protests across the US - with far larger demonstrations expected on Saturday - and global outrage against Trump's "zero tolerance" policy. So fearless! The radical left Dems want you out.

The announcement came on a day thousands of protesters took to the streets in USA cities from Washington to San Francisco to oppose the Trump administration's family separations at the border.

Over the past week, several prominent Democrats have proposed eliminating ICE, citing what they say is its unjust treatment of immigrants. Special Agents in charge of 19 different regions in the US signed a letter to the secretary of Homeland Security, asking her make them separate from Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Be smart: "Abolish ICE" is the ideal antithesis to Trump's "Build a wall": It represents an entire immigration ideology in one simple phrase that resonates with their base. "You know ICE, these are the guys that go in and take MS-13, and they take them out".

"I think their priority right now is to get us off the ICE property so that the ICE building can continue to function, get people going in and out", Dorfman said.
