But when Donald Trump was elected, he sent ICE a clear message: The gloves are off. Add Donald Trump as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Donald Trump news, video, and analysis from ABC News. Some called to "End Deportations", while others tried to tie immigration enforcement to climate change, calling to "Abolish ICE, not ICE Caps".
In his tweets, Trump praised ICE for working to "liberate" Long Island from the grasp of MS-13, a transnational gang. "They are great!", he tweeted Saturday. Of course they will. President Trump has been saying that for weeks, before he even realized that anyone wanted to abolish ICE. Next it will be all police. "Zero chance, It will never happen!" That's going to be their platform... Crime would be rampant and uncontrollable!
Laura Ingraham complained that "Occupy ICE protesters want to, again, make it impossible for our immigration investigators to do their jobs". Kirsten Gillibrand (D), New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the 28-year-old who unseated longtime Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley in a New York state primary election. Those are the ICE agents who investigate, detain and deport immigrants who have entered the country illegally.
Gillibrand called for an all-out elimination of ICE. "And I think you should separate out the criminal justice from the immigration issues".
"We don't need ICE to be reformed". 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. Another possible presidential candidate, California Sen.
"We are always going to need immigration enforcement".
This comes in response to far-left attacks and mass protests against immigration enforcement.
"Between Maxine Waters and Nancy Pelosi and getting rid of ICE and having open borders and the biggest thing - you have open borders".
They all think ICE should be disbanded and its work handled by a different, more capable agency.
Despite the handful of Senate Democrats who have called for the end of ICE, others are more skeptical and say the agency should instead be overhauled instead of abolished.
But the truth is that abolishing ICE isn't that radical.
"As a woman and as a mother, I refuse to stay silent as parents on the border are separated from their kids", said Tamika Mallory, co-chair of the Women's March, who was one of those arrested.
"The Democrats have literally moved the immigration debate to the terrain of: Should the country enforce our immigrations laws - yes or no?"
"We have to have an agency at the border; I what that policy to reflect not what President Trump has done". "I think we know that".
"But Ice, border patrol, these are incredible patriots", Trump said.
