DHS Police Remove Protesters Camped Out Outside Portland ICE Facility

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D., N.Y.), who has been frequently touted as a potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, became the most high-profile elected official to call for abolishing ICE during a Thursday appearance on CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time".

She was followed by Sen. Kamala Harris of California over the past week.

"I believe that it has become a deportation force", she said.

Trump has frequently been criticized for making unsubstantiated claims about the MS-13 gang.

He also tweeted that the "brave men and women of ICE. are doing a fantastic job of keeping us safe by eradicating the worst criminal elements". Next it will be all police.

ICE was created within the newly formed Department of Homeland Security following the passage of the Homeland Security Act of 2002.

Protesters in CT took to the streets on Monday against the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" immigration policy. But calling for an end to ICE could be a victor for Democrats seeking to rally the party's base in the 2020 presidential primaries.

On Saturday, Mr. Trump took to Twitter to praise the service of the men and women of ICE, and to blast Democrats suggesting the agency be eliminated. "And that's what I think we need", Klobuchar said. "Because they're going to get beaten so badly", he said in an interview with Fox News Channel's "Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo", according to an excerpt released Saturday.

"You think you should get rid of the agency?" he said, his eyes wide.

"I'm not leaving this fight", Homan said, adding he will be able to speak more freely after he leaves office.

Less than two weeks on, the demand - a favored meme on the left - has gone from a progressive fringe cause, mostly ignored even by some of the most liberal lawmakers, to a political message being embraced by a growing roster of influential national Democrats. "No justice, no peace, no racist police", one group chanted. "And after ICE is changed as an agency, there will be enforcement of immigration laws", said Jayapal.

Founded in 1979, FAIR is the country's largest immigration reform group.

"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.

ICE, which is tasked with immigration enforcement away from US borders, has been "emboldened" to inhumanely round up illegal immigrants and deport them, critics say.
