President Trump attacks Democrats over increasing calls to abolish ICE

Federal law enforcement officers took nine people into custody Thursday during a sweep of protesters at the Southwest Macadam Avenue headquarters of the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.

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. More than 600 marches could draw hundreds of thousands of people nationwide, from immigrant-friendly cities like Los Angeles and New York City to conservative Appalachia and Wyoming.

Trump's decision to pursue a policy of charging all undocumented adults who illegally cross into the USA with criminal charges resulted in the separation of over 2,300 children from their parents, and while the president has since halted the family separations amid outcry, the question remains about how the vast majority of children will be reunited with their parents. Additional issues are in the mix, including whether or not undocumented immigrants seeking asylum are granted a hearing or immediately deported. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) special agents? Harris said on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday that the nation's immigration enforcement should "start from scratch" by eliminating ICE. But since Vitiello comes from a different agency, it's likely that federal law would prevent him from serving in the role in an acting capacity while also nominated to the Senate for the permanent position.

The president's forceful defense of the agency comes as immigration advocates are expected to hold large rallies across the country Saturday over the family separation controversy.

Sharaf and three other women recently fired up their laptops and cellphones at her dining room table - one mother breastfeeding her son as she worked.

"I'm a mom, and I think everyone I know that I've talked to about this issue has had a very visceral reaction", Sharaf said.

Officers moved in at sunrise and were able to unblock the entrance to the facility that had been closed for more than a week, said Rob Sperling, spokesman for Federal Protective Service, which is responsible for protecting federal buildings. "Because they're going to get beaten so badly", Trump said, according to Axios.

Chants included "No racist police".

Alex said his group has met privately with several potential presidential candidates.

"We need a re-do of where these enforcement functions lie", she added. "Some of them did", Sperling said. New York Mayor Bill DeBlasio (D) said that the agency has "become a punitive, negative tool for division", and that its existence is "no longer acceptable".
