LA City Councilman Calls for End to ICE

ICE names new acting director amid immigration turmoil

Several top Democratic critics of Trump, some of them eyeing a possible 2020 campaign against him in the next presidential campaign, have called for the abolition of ICE and rethinking how the US controls the influx of immigrants, many of them escaping crime and poverty in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. "Rounding up children, that's not what they're supposed to do", he said. "Which, I know, is not what people who say "abolish ICE' only want-they too want to change our entire immigration system".

Reuters/Ipsos data shows that immigration became a top concern for registered voters in the United States after the Trump administration in May announced its "zero tolerance" policy on illegal immigrants, saying they would be criminally charged.

"Donald Trump has turned ICE into a police and child separation agency - not a border enforcement agency that treats people humanely and compassionately", Gillum said.

"That's all we are asking, that they are able to quell our fears", Romero said.

"How can you sit there and say you are not for abolishing ICE when it is a terroristic organization?" asked a woman, who called herself an organizer in the Houston community. "You know, it's like you're liberating towns", Trump said at a salute to service dinner in White Sulphur Springs of West Virginia on Monday.

Oakland has been a sanctuary city since 1986 and as a result, refuses to cooperate with ICE or DHS immigration raids.

What does abolish ICE as a motto mean, anyway? To that end, 80 percent favored hiring more immigration judges "to process people in custody faster". Eight-four percent - a huge number - said that cities should be required to notify immigration authorities.

U.S. will 'absolutely' sanction European companies that do business with Iran
He said in the Fox interview that European companies would face sanctions if they traded with Iran now. It's awful what they do to us, he said.

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

It was a heartless and poorly planned exercise aimed at discouraging would-be immigrants from countries south of us from illegal entry. "We are not abandoning our law enforcement, it's just the opposite", the US President said. In the European Union, the answer to that question could determine the future of Angela Merkel's government.

Did the Democratic Party miss that election?

Nearly everyone agrees that policy was extreme and inhumane - all the more so because it appears deceptive tactics were used to take children from parents and because the administration had no good procedures in place to ensure that parents and children would be reunited.

Pence claimed that opposition to ICE was no longer coming just from "the radical left" but had now "moved to the center of the Democratic party itself". And if Penn's findings are correct, most Americans are now closer to President Trump than present-day Democratic leaders.

Stay on topic - This helps keep the thread focused on the discussion at hand. I've been in Congress for six years and the first vote that we had on immigration that happened to be around Dreamers was three weeks ago in those six years.
