Kirsten Gillibrand Becomes FIRST SENATOR to Call for Abolishment of ICE

The issue could be complicated for Democrats.

"I hope they keep thinking about it because they're going to get beaten so badly", he said.

His comments came amid weekend protests across the country against the administration's immigration policies, with calls to abolish ICE endorsed by leading Democrats such as Sens.

Since the Portland Occupy ICE encampment popped up here, tent cities like it have arisen near ICE buildings in larger cities, such as NY and Los Angeles. Kirsten Gillibrand's remarks in a CNN interview on Thursday.

Ocasio-Cortez, who is part of the progressive wing of the Democratic Party, has made the abolition of ICE a central pillar of her candidacy.

USA immigration laws "are the dumbest anywhere in the world", Trump said Saturday on Twitter.

Activists and progressive leaders are pressing on, becoming more aggressive in their push to abolish the agency, an effort many in the movement view as both a way to open up the debate over decades of bipartisan US immigration policy and, crucially, win elections.

HSI is the criminal investigations arm of ICE. Deportations fell from a high of 434,000 in 2013 to 344,000 in 2016 under President Barack Obama.

ICE has played a central role in the Trump administration's efforts to crack down on illegal immigration.

Thousands of protesters across America, moved by accounts of children separated from their parents at the U.S. -Mexico border, marched Saturday - in major cities and tiny towns - to demand President Donald Trump's administration reunite the divided families. Mr. Trump signed an executive order to end those separations, but many children still remain apart from their parents.

Homan's retirement comes as the administration faces an worldwide backlash over a policy that has separated parents and children caught crossing the border without documentation, and reunite those families.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) became the first sitting senator to say the US should "get rid of" ICE: "start over".

Harley-Davidson Responds To EU Tariffs
Harley-Davidson say the tariffs will result in approximately $2200 (£1650) being added to the export cost of each motorcycle. The EU tariffs on exported Harley-Davidson bikes will increase to 31% from 6%, the OEM wrote in a SEC filing on Monday.

"I know what the lasting affect of this is", she said.

Homan said he has "mixed emotions" about the leaving his post in the middle of a "fight" with those who are unfairly vilifying the agency and President Trump.

"But what I think it allows us to do is talk about the facts", he said. The president has twice visited that region to discuss the dangers of criminal immigrants, whom he has called "animals". And I think you should reimagine ICE under a new agency with a very different mission and take those two missions out. "Next it will be all police".

"We came to the United States seeking help, and we never imagined that this could happen".

Thousands dressed in white and gathered early Saturday morning in sweltering 90-degree heat in Lafayette Park across from the White House in what was expected to be the largest of the day's protests.

"Any Democrats who want to be the nominee need to stand on the right side of this", Stamp said. Senator Richard Blumenthal of CT told CBS's Face the Nation on Sunday "abolishing Ice will accomplish nothing unless we change the Trump policies".

"We appreciate that these individuals have expressed an interest in and concern with the critical issue of securing our nation's borders and enforcing our immigration laws", Houlton said.

"But the ‘abolish ICE debate oversimplifies everything", the aide said. If you get rid of it, then what?

Alarmed by the rhetoric, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, which has been critical of Trumps immigration agenda, developed talking points to emphasize the "inhumane and harsh" treatment of immigrants by ICE but also stressed the importance of other functions of the agency, such as investigating cybercrime and carry out anti-drug operations, according to the Daily Beast.

The Democrats calling for the elimination of ICE aren't obscure backbenchers.
