Additionally, Democrat Senator Kirsten Gillibrand recently outright called for abolishing ICE - making her the first senator to do so.

Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) became the first USA senator to join the growing ranks of progressives who want to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement. "I have literally never seen Americans show up for immigrants like this", said Jess Morales Rocketto, political director at the National Domestic Workers Alliance, which represents nannies, housekeepers and caregivers, many of whom are immigrants.

Be smart: "Abolish ICE" is the flawless antithesis to Trump's "Build a wall": It represents an entire immigration ideology in one simple phrase that resonates with their base.

In a pair of tweets from his private golf club in Bedminister, New Jersey, Trump forcefully defended the performance of Immigration and Customs Enforcement and lambasted Democrats as pushing a "radical left" agenda to abolish it, even though only a handful have publicly supported doing so.

"I'm nearly 75 years old and for the past 50 years, I've sen a lot of civil rights happen in this country and I'm seeing them slowly chipped away - women's rights, civil rights", said Susan Wiest of Los Osos.

"We're calling out the state of OR for allowing ICE ... to operate within our borders", Sinclair said. He's being named the deputy director of ICE and also will serve as its acting director, Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen said in a statement on Saturday. They called for an end to the Trump administration policy that resulted in separating migrant families at the border and, as the viral protest heated up, began to chant: "Abolish ICE!" Unfortunately, President Trump and his team of white nationalists, including Stephen Miller, have so misused ICE that the agency can no longer accomplish its goals effectively.

In a couple of weekend tweets, Trump praised ICE as "one of the smartest, toughest and most spirited law enforcement groups" and said there's "Zero chance" that the border security agency will be abolished.

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 USA immigration policy and, crucially, win elections.

"It's upsetting. Families being separated, children in cages", said Emilia Ramos, a cleaner in the district, fighting tears at the rally.

Schwab said the interruption was "shocking", and "it just seemed like two thugs coming to the door and threatening me".

Republican politicians and attendant strategists seem to be welcoming this latest shift in the Democratic party paradigm, sensing that it may cause further internal fracture as well as form as a winning wedge for them with American voters, particularly those voters living outside of strong blue enclaves such as California and NY. "They are escaping conditions that us imperialism caused".
