Andrew Gillum: Abolish ICE 'in its current form'

Representative Mark Pocan, Democrat of Wisconsin, drew a more specific parallel to family separation at the border and ICE's activities.

There has to be accountability for all law enforcement, including Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Instead, many want to split up the agency's necessary responsibilities and take a hard look at how the country enforces its laws.

Fox's list of lawmakers seeking to abolish ICE included Rep. Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore., who said, "We should abolish ICE and start over, focusing on our priorities to protect our families and our borders in a humane and thoughtful fashion".

For Kenney, the "Occupy ICE" encampment made it less than three days before protesters were shoved to the ground and handcuffed with zip-ties, just steps from the Police Department's "Roundhouse" headquarters.

The Democratic calls to scrap the agency underscore the balancing act the party is facing on immigration issues.

Immigrant activist Dennis Romero said that the events of this week weren't a protest, but were a "barricade" against intolerance, bigotry and the separation of children from their mothers.

President Donald Trump on Thursday reiterated his call for removing immigrants who cross the border into the United States without due process and compared them to people who trespass on "your front lawn".

Kenney had enjoyed darling status with progressive groups who supported his sanctuary city policy, which rejects requests from ICE to put "detainer" holds on inmates being released from city jails if they are in the country illegally. "Should claims of asylum be allowed for people who say their country has high levels of violence, or should it be limited to people who can show their government was persecuting them?"

And the poll comes a week after the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), one of the US' leading civil rights organisations, blamed Mr Trump's "xenophobic rhetoric and racist policies" for a rise in hate crimes.

"From conducting raids at garden centers, and meatpacking plants, to breaking up families at churches and schools, ICE is tearing apart families and ripping the moral fabric of our nation", he said in a statement.

Penn's polling found other results favorable to the Trump approach to immigration.

"I think that what we need is to create policies which deal with immigration in a rational way", the senator said. There doesn't seem to be a lot of nuance or middle ground.

O'Rourke: If we're not willing to compromise at some level, if we're not going to seek common ground, if we're not going to work on the basis of consensus, then we can be morally right and righteous all day long and get absolutely nothing done. I think they'll never win another election.

Democratic Senate candidate Beto O'Rourke has resisted pressure to jump on the "Abolish ICE" train, but the congressman fell short of taking the idea entirely off the table during a recent interview with KUT-FM. Congressman, thank you so much for your time today. "You know, it's like the same thing". "We are concerned and would like to have communications and a visit to see for ourselves".
