Trump defends 'brave' ICE agents as Dems call to abolish agency

  • Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agents arrested some 100 people at Corso's in Sandusky as part of a large-scale immigration investigation

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has a new acting director, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said Saturday.

The call is becoming a litmus test for Democratic candidates.

"It's much more aggressive in who it's going after throughout the country", said the Democrat whose district includes Iowa and Lafayette counties.

The Trump administration's crackdown on immigration has prompted some Democrats and activists on the left to call for ICE to be abolished. "I think we know that". However, it is Customs and Border Protection - a separate division under the DHS - and not ICE, that carried out the policy, sending parents to face prosecution in federal court while their children were turned over to the Department of Health and Human Services. It was meant to send a message to migrants that crossing the border illegally would have immediate consequences.

But after massive resistance from Democrats and Republicans, religious leaders and the business community, the president relented.

Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), who was among a group of roughly 600 people arrested this week following a protest inside the Hart Senate Office Building in Washington, DC, appeared on CNN's this morning and explained why ICE as it now exists is untenable.

"President Trump seems to think the only way to have immigration rules is rip parents from their families, is to treat rape victims and refugees like terrorists and to put children in cages", Warren said.

It has grown into a major movement.

"Referring to Schwab's description of the statements in question, ICE spokeswoman Liz Johnson told CNN, 'We disagree with Mr. Schwab on this issue and dispute his characterization".

Carlos Vela converted the penalty with a wonderful strike sending the keeper the wrong way to give his side a 1-0 advantage. So I think the most appropriate action is to keep working.

"I think what has to change are the policies, and the people that are making these policies are making horrendous decisions like separating kids from their parents", she said. This is a frequent claim for the president, and Donald Trump has been criticized before for making claims that MS-13 had taken over entire towns and cities.

As the Texas Observer reported, the Department of Homeland Security "shifted HSI funds to other parts of ICE to cover the costs of civil immigration enforcement, including $34.5 million in 2016".

Polling suggests Mr. Trump's new stance is the more popular. They may just get their wish if the far-left gets their way.

But the plurality - 44 percent - backed the government's current position: that the families be held together in detention centers until their immigration hearings and then be deported or allowed to stay. It is not happening and the Trump administration is embarked on a trainwreck: "a moral trainwreck, a legal trainwreck, and a humanitarian trainwreck".

In Washington, DC, an estimated 30,000 marchers gathered in Lafayette Park across from the White House in what was expected to be the largest protest of the day, stretching for hours under a searing sun. The said the cases should be considered civil, not criminal. "ICE has lost trust".

Vitiello replaces Thomas Homan, who announced in May he would be retiring.

Mr. Trump this weekend offered his full support for ICE.

Trump, however, in repeated tweets has defended the agency, saying Saturday, "To the great and fearless men and women of ICE, do not worry or lose your spirit. You get rid of ICE, you're going to have a country that you're going to be afraid to walk out of your house". Next it will be all police.
