In recent days a number of high-profile Democrats, including the New York City mayor, Bill de Blasio, and New York senator Kirsten Gillibrand, have called for the agency to be disbanded with a new immigration enforcement program brought in in its place. "Zero chance, It will never happen!" he added.

The Trump administration's crackdown on immigration has prompted some Democrats and activists on the left to call for ICE to be abolished.

As the fight to abolish U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) gains ground, 19 high-profile ICE agents and leaders have signed a letter asking Homeland Security head Kirstjen Nielsen to eliminate the agency.

In an interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo, the New York Democrat said she believes it is time to "reimagine" the controversial agency with a "very different mission".

"I'm here because I'm disgusted, outraged, and frightened by our government", Lisa Zieger, a 66-year-old Newark resident, said.

"You know ICE, these are the guys that go in and take MS-13, and they take them out".

Pocan said that shift decreases the confidence of local communities in which ICE must work. "They are escaping conditions that us imperialism caused". We need to separate immigration issues from criminal justice.

His proposal would create a commission, the goal of which would be to issue recommendations to Congress and identify the essential functions of ICE that can be returned to other federal agencies.

Merkel, however, has acknowledged that "no solution will be reached" on the overall migration issue at either summit. The meeting was called last week to clear the air before a scheduled full summit on Thursday and Friday.

"There are people who have all kinds of other grievances or gripes with the Trump administration and they're quite happy to use this one as the most productive and salient for the moment", he said.

The activists said they were represented by the National Lawyers Guild.

He has been the acting deputy commissioner at Customs and Border Protection, ICE's sister immigration law enforcement agency, where he's overseen initial construction of Mr. Trump's border wall.

During my trip to the southern border, it was clear that ICE, and its actions of hunting down and tearing apart families, has wreaked havoc on far too many people.

TAMEEM FRUCTER: ICE is enacting this unacceptable violence on families, on children, on human beings.

The proposal was largely confined to the most progressive wings of the Democratic Party until the last two weeks, when Donald Trump's efforts to kidnap immigrant children from their homes and their parents and place them in makeshift prison camps came to light.

Former Vice President Joe Biden voted as a senator from DE for the 2002 law, the Homeland Security Act, that paved the way for ICE to replace the Immigration and Naturalization Service.
