  • ICE names new acting director amid immigration turmoil

The council's actions included a vote of support for a federal bill that would prohibit an agent or officer of the Department of Homeland Security from removing a child from his or her parent or legal guardian, at or near a USA border or port of entry.

"I love this state, which I happened to win by 42 points over a Democrat".

The Republican president has sent mixed signals to Congress on immigration in the last month, telling legislators that he wants changes to the system and then directing them to wait until after the November election when the make-up of the Senate could be more favorable to Republicans.

For the second day in a row, members of ResistanceSF on Tuesday protested outside the ICE building on Sansome Street in San Francisco bearing signs that read "Crush ICE" and "No One is Illegal".

So, listen, I'll work with those who want to abolish ICE, because I think the intent is noble and they're trying to get to the abuse that they're seeing that underlies that. That changed after self-described socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defeated NY incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley last month in a Democrat primary.

Vice President Mike Pence reiterated that the administration stands with ICE as he delivered remarks at the agency's headquarters.

"ICE's aggressive tactics, their separation of families, their targeting of law abiding immigrants are cruel", Gamble said in a statement.

"In 2002 I voted against the creation of DHS and the establishment of ICE", Sanders tweeted.


But calls haven't been limited to the organized left.

Sixty-one percent (61%) of voters who favor getting rid of ICE say the government is too aggressive in deporting illegal immigrants. 'When people, with or without children, enter our Country, they must be told to leave without our.Country being forced to endure a long and costly trial'. Every time they've made us move or taken something, we've made it worse. Eight-four percent - a huge number comprised of 94 percent of Republicans, 76 percent of Democrats, and 83 percent of independents - said that cities should be required to notify immigration authorities. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) have all called for the abolition of ICE after socialist congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez won a surprise victory in the primary for New York's 14th District with the policy at the heart of her campaign.

Trump also linked his defense of ICE to his frequent brandishing of the threat posed by MS-13 gangs - and returned to using charged language comparing them to an infestation of insects.

"It's more important to replace Trump", he said.

Who wants to abolish the ICE?

"These spurious attacks on ICE by our political leaders must stop", Pence said of an agency that has taken on a higher profile amid the Trump administration's "zero-tolerance" immigration policies and forced separations of migrant families at the southern border.

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.

"Martin Luther King never said, 'Black power, '" Stamp said.
