Some Democrats With Eye on 2020 Say, ‘Abolish ICE’

Attorney Andrea Martinez was trying to reunite Kenia Bautista Mayorga, 23 with her three-year-old son Noah before the pair were deported to Honduras

In a couple of weekend tweets, Trump praised ICE as "one of the smartest, toughest and most spirited law enforcement groups" and said there's "Zero chance" that the border security agency will be abolished. According to Trump, the abolition of ICE "will never happen".

The president's approach to immigration has come under renewed scrutiny since the revelation that the administration's "zero-tolerance" policy involved the separation of families at the U.S. -Mexico border.

Homan was asked about the recent rhetoric from three New York Democrats: actress and gubernatorial hopeful Cynthia Nixon, Sen.

Rep. Mark Pocan (D-WI) is now hammering out legislation to abolish the agency.

Momentum has been steadily building to do away with ICE, which was created in 2003, following this week's upset victory of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who successfully unseated a senior Democrat in the House of Representatives for the party's nomination.

"I get calls regularly", Marin said earlier this month.

"I join those outraged by ICE actions separating parents from their children, and support peaceful protest to give voice to our collective moral conscience", Wheeler said in the statement.

Justice Department signs off on Disney-Fox merger
Disney is looking to boost its content as it readies to launch its own streaming service in 2019 to take on Netflix. Even so, THR cautions that "Comcast is not out of the running quite yet as it could still top Disney's offer".

"I am confident and hopeful that it will not last long and that it will not last forever, because of every single individual who's on this block today", the 28-year-old told attendees.

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.

Democrats who have suggested abolishing the agency have yet to propose what agency or strategy might replace it.

An officer with Homeland Security's Federal Protective Services Police prepares to take down the remaining tents in Detroit's Occupy ICE encampment.

"We give them room to talk about better immigration policy", she said, comparing the circumstances to the civil rights movement, when Martin Luther King Jr., was viewed more favorably by white power brokers than more strident leaders like Malcolm X.

A federal judge ruled Tuesday that immigration authorities must unite families separated along the border within 30 days. Of those detained, 17 had criminal convictions and 14 had were previously released from Philadelphia County custody, despite having an ICE detainer lodged against them. Detroit protesters say they had some success in hampering ICE operations when they blocked some employees from entering the building Monday morning.
