Donald Trump Law Enforcement Appointees Previously Worked for ICE Contractors

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who upset 10-term representative Joe Crowley in the NY-14 Democratic primary, campaigned on abolishing the agency.

ICE isn't responsible for immigration enforcement at the border.

The president called Democrats "weak" on immigration and twice mentioned the November elections - where immigration and his administration's "zero tolerance" policy at the border will be a top issue.

But last month, Trump reversed course and signed an executive order to keep families together.

Democrats say abolishing ICE would hardly open American borders.

"We are always going to need immigration enforcement", Klobuchar said on ABC's "This Week".

Another possible presidential candidate, California Sen. Unfortunately, for them, ICE has nothing to do with capturing illegal border crossers or separating families.

Trump urged ICE agents to "not worry or lose your spirit", adding: "The radical left Dems want you out". One prong is focused on border enforcement and the other on "interior" enforcement-that is, targeting those who are already settled within the country.

Last month, after nearly a year of litigation, a US district judge ruled in favor of Philadelphia in its "sanctuary city" case against the White House. "You must not know what ICE really does" with a link to a press release about ICE deporting a Salvadoran MS-13 affiliate, as well as an Irish national.

In an interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo, Gillibrand said that ICE is no longer "working as intended".

The situation at the border sparked widespread criticism and prompted rallies protesting Trump's immigration policies across the country, including in Montpelier and Burlington.

Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren of MA, who could run against Trump in two years, said over the weekend, "The president's deeply immoral actions have made it obvious we need to rebuild our immigration system from top to bottom starting by replacing ICE with something that reflects our morality and that works".

"Acting Director Homan will be greatly missed in his well-earned (second) retirement", Nielsen said in her statement.

To advance the first prong, Homan advocated family separation at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), ICE's umbrella agency. People should be treated with compassion and respect. Blumenthal said on "Face the Nation" that the organizations doing the vetting made it a condition that the nominee "commit to rolling back protections for health insurance". Fifty-three percent of swing-voters and 69 percent of Republicans oppose "getting rid of ICE".

"We need to start a fresh conversation". The agents reportedly said that ICE is supposed track down drug cartel leaders, child pornographers and human traffickers; but instead, the letter said, agents are spending time and resources going after undocumented immigrants, and the agency is becoming a "political pawn". Not only did Roxsana come to this country because she wanted the safety to live her life as her authentic self, but she died in Albuquerque, my hometown. "This Administration is attacking immigrants on a multitude of fronts and we must resist on all of them". If the Trump admin insists on continuing the whole detention/deportation thing, the ICE agents believe the best move is to separate the serious work they do so they operate without being guilty by association.
