Trump Bashes Dems Pushing to Abolish ICE: 'Zero Chance'

Attorney Andrea Martinez was trying to reunite Kenia Bautista Mayorga, 23 with her three-year-old son Noah before the pair were deported to Honduras

The one people talk about the most these days is Enforcement and Removal Operations.

Marin told the officer that the agents had merely gone there to get coffee.

"I'm here because I'm disgusted, outraged, and frightened by our government", Lisa Zieger, a 66-year-old Newark resident, said. "It was not like that at all up until this administration".

The movement comes amid backlash over the administration's "zero tolerance" immigration policy, with lawmakers pushing for the administration to quickly reunite the thousands of migrant children separated from their parents who face prosecution for illegally crossing the border.

ICE spokeswoman Liz Johnson condemned calls to abolish the agency as "dangerously misguided".

More: ICE on ice?

That has sparked frustration within the agency.

The letter describes the perception that HSI has the same mission as ERO, which oversees rounding up undocumented immigrants for deportation.

Earlier this week, police began distributing fliers to the Occupiers warning them that the encampment on the ICE property was illegal and violators could be arrested. While ERO might be the most known, it is not the only division in the agency.

The migrant children are labelled as "unaccompanied minors" and sent to the government's custody or foster care. First lady Melania Trump on Thursday flew to Texas to visit children displaced by the immigration crisis.


Kevin Kelly, the agent in charge of Buffalo's Homeland Security Investigations office, is one of those who signed. After a brief update on the June 28 mass shooting at an Annapolis, MD, newspaper, Tucker Carlson - who uses his platform to promote white nationalism - opened his show by denouncing #AbolishICE as an "ideological revolution on the left" and fearmongering about the criminals and drugs that he claimed would flood the country without ICE.

"Instead of being insulted with politically-motivated attacks, the men and women of ICE should be praised for risking life and limb every day in the name of national security and public safety", Johnson said in a statement.

The Department of Homeland Security did not comment on the letter.

"In line with the Mayor and Police Commissioner's directions, the Police Bureau was not involved in the Federal Protective Services (FPS) actions as it related to Occupy ICE PDX". In Portland, protesters were able to shut down an ICE facility for at least a week.

Rep. Mark Pocan (D-WI) is now hammering out legislation to abolish the agency. Fresh off her defeat of powerful incumbent Congressman Joseph Crowley, leftist candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez - who was backed by the Democratic Socialists of America - has made abolishing ICE a chief talking point of her campaign.

Pocan said that shift decreases the confidence of local communities in which ICE must work.

Once relegated to a fringe philosophy on the far-left of the Democratic Party base, suggestions to outright dismantle ICE entirely and to immediately press for the impeachment of President Donald Trump have started to enter the mainstream leftist lexicon as American political polarization deepens.

"Extremist Democrat politicians have called for the complete elimination of ICE".
