Immigration enforcement is like liberating a town in combat: Donald Trump

Amid Controversy, VP Pence Visits ICE

ICE "has become a deportation force", Sen. In a June 26 primary in NY, for example, Democratic leader Rep. Joe Crowley was beaten by a young anti-ICE candidate, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. "We demand not only the end of family separation, but an end to deportation, detention, and the institution of ICE itself".

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. It's short enough to fit on a bumper sticker - as does "Build the Wall", or "Abolish the IRS".

On the other hand, 55 percent said illegal immigrant families should be held in custody "until a judge reviews their case" - essentially the new Trump family detention policy. The party's position on immigration is unrecognizable to some Democrats. It also expresses the fear and outrage among immigrant communities who feel that ICE is terrorizing their neighborhoods. "But it's just as important to get something done, to make things better than they are right now", O'Rourke said.

'Dems do not appreciate the great job they do!' He concluded, then adding without explanation: 'Nov'. He asked: "Should cities that arrest illegal immigrants for crimes be required to notify immigration authorities they are in custody or be prohibited from notifying immigration authorities?" The two of them and other housemates went outside to find agents on their street. I wish we were pushing this to: "'We need comprehensive immigration reform'".

The call is becoming a litmus test for Democratic candidates.

Until this past weekend, immigration was largely a political problem for Republicans. "ICE is not welcome in this country".

Rep. Mark Pocan of Wisconsin said he would introduce legislation that would dismantle ICE and create a commission to provide recommendations to Congress on how the government "can implement a humane immigration enforcement system", according to a statement. Ted Cruz for his seat, has so far resisted pressure from grassroots groups to call for abolishing the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.

And Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren called for "replacing ICE" in a rally on Saturday. Senator Kamala Harris is also in favor of "critically re-examining" the agency. Ted Cruz in the midterm elections in November.

Is the debate over ICE's existence worth having?

"I think there's no question that we've got to critically re-examine ICE and its role and the way that it is being administered and the work it is doing", she told MSNBC.

The Oakland Police Department repeatedly confirmed that this was not an immigration raid, rather they were investigating child sex-trafficking in that house.

A majority of ICE's top criminal investigation agents are asking Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen to spin their division off from the agency.
