President Donald Trump on Saturday opened a new front in the immigration debate, diverting attention away from his administrations treatment of undocumented immigrants to a broader fight over the federal agency charged with detaining and deporting them. While some Democrats like Alexandria Oscasio-Cortez have suggested dissolving ICE, others have simply suggested that the duties given to ICE be reviewed and made more inline with the original goal of the agency, post 9/11.

After clarifying ICE's and Border Patrol's respective roles, he made it clear that he was "not vilifying Border Patrol" and condemning what federal agents at the border are doing to curb illegal immigration - but rather trying to diffuse public frustration wrongly directed at his agency.

"I have people already reaching out to us that want to sign on", he said.

Discussion over eliminating the agency has ramped up this week and, in some cases, is being linked to border issues and the separation of immigrant children from their families. Another possible presidential candidate, California Sen.

One Democratic aide in the House, who was not authorized to speak on the record, called proposals to abolish ICE "stupid" and said the strategy would "play right into Trumps hands".

"I think what has to change are the policies, and the people that are making these policies are making horrendous decisions like separating kids from their parents", she said.

Lake added: "Voters believe we need some enforcement of border security - not just for immigration, but for security". "We are a major country with major borders, so to me, the issue is what are those policies". Kamala Harris (D-CA) said, "We need to probably think about starting from scratch".

"It was also entirely unclear which cities and town Trump meant were "literally taken over" by MS-13, which remains a small fraction of the overall gang problem in the USA, per available statistics", the report noted.

"Homan said he has "mixed emotions" about the leaving his post in the middle of a "fight" with those who are unfairly vilifying the agency and President Trump", Fox News Insider noted.
