Trump Rejects Calls To Abolish ICE: 'Zero Chance, It Will Never Happen!'

"ICE has lost trust". Kirsten Gillibrand are just two of the left-leaning pols to jump on the anti-ICE bandwagon that new Dem darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez got rolling after her shock defeat of Queens power broker Rep. Joe Crowley on Tuesday.

Their focus, Alex said, should be on "stopping the long-standing culture of corruption" in USA immigration policy and "the appalling practices" of the Trump administration, not on a move that by itself "amounts to rebranding".

Nineteen senior investigators at the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (Ice) have called for the law enforcement agency, responsible for both national security investigations and deportation of undocumented migrants, to be disbanded.

The letter is likely to bolster the growing movement in Democratic politics and activist circles to abolish Ice.

As a result, children were separated from their families and held first in "processing centers", then in shelters.

She was followed by Sen. "Zero chance, It will never happen!" he added.

Vitiello is a 30-year-old veteran of law enforcement and was tapped to lead ICE after President Donald Trump's pick, Thomas Homan, took himself out of the running and said he'd retire this summer. And she ridiculed protesters in Washington, D.C., who were calling for abolishment of ICE as "Jiffy Pop" on account of the "tin foil robes" they wore, which were meant to resemblethe foil blankets ICE is giving detained children.

ICE spokeswoman Liz Johnson condemned calls to abolish the agency as "dangerously misguided" in a statement Friday.

Hundreds of people took part in the "Families Belong Together" march on Saturday, demanding an end to family separations at the border and the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy on immigration. "And we need to build into any new structure the ability for ICE as an agency or whatever the new agency is, to be accountable back to congress".

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.
