USA officials call for abolition of immigration agency

Nielsen said that under "his exceptional leadership, the men and women of ICE have made significant progress in restoring the rule of law to our immigration system and countering criminals such as human smugglers and those attempting to exploit children".

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of NY is among a growing number of mainstream elected officials now supporting the idea of getting rid of the agency created in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks. "I think you should reimagine ICE under a new agency with a very different mission and take those two missions out".

"Some of these unsafe individuals had been released to the streets instead of being turned over to ICE on our detainers, which compromises the safety of the homeland that ICE officers strive to protect every day".

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who beat Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley of NY in the primary last week, ran on a platform of abolishing the agency, and so far, more lawmakers have echoed her call. Since then, calls to abolish ICE have grown from a whisper to a shout.

At the Working Families Party, Stamp said she sees the activists taking a position that "offers space" to other Democrats activists know won't agree with them.

"You need some kind of agency to deal with immigration, but ICE is not that", de Blasio told Lehrer.

She said city officials are also coordinating with Oregon's congressional delegation to get additional information on the situation. It quickly grew into a mini protest village.

Her comments follow similar sentiments expressed by Sen.

"It has to be a unified front (in response to ICE)", Bermudez said, "because like when you have people chanting on the street, 'You will not replace us, ' they're not just talking about Jews".

The report added that the MS-13 gang actually originated in the United States in Los Angeles among Salvadoran immigrants, and only spread to Central America after some of the gang members were deported there. "They're talking about everyone".
