Trump attacks ‘abolish ICE’ movement on the morning of massive nationwide protest

Don Ryan  AP

New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand becomes the first sitting USA senator to publicly call for the elimination of Immigration and Customs Enforcement; reaction and analysis on 'The Five'. They may just get their wish if the far-left gets their way.

As the demand to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spreads across the country-and with community members building protest encampments outside ICE facilities in several cities this week-some officers with the 15-year-old agency have now added their voices to the growing call to dissolve it. "We're doing what you told us to do".

Widely broadcast pictures of young children held in enclosures behind chain-link fences sparked protests across the US - with far larger demonstrations expected on Saturday - and worldwide outrage against Trump's "zero tolerance" policy.

Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) became the first USA senator to join the growing ranks of progressives who want to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement. I wish we were pushing this to: "'We need comprehensive immigration reform'". "I believe that it has become a deportation force". "We really respect the kids who have been separated from their parents", she said.

A federal judge ruled Tuesday that immigration authorities must unite families separated along the border within 30 days.

"The Democrats are making a strong push to abolish ICE, one of the smartest, toughest and most spirited law enforcement groups of men and women that I have ever seen". Multiple candidates for prominent elected positions have endorsed the movement, including New York congressional nominee Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a Democratic Socialist who ran on the issue leading up to her upset primary win over Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY).

Democratic leaders have also refrained from calling for the outright elimination of ICE, instead focusing on reforming the agency.

Buch said some law enforcement agencies either don't want to work with HSI or they want "to minimize ICE's involvement in the joint operations".

A senior White House official said the Administration would be "leaning aggressively into the fight" over ICE.

Homan said Gillibrand fails to mention that ICE has arrested 5,000 criminal aliens in New York City and protects the state's northern border against opioid trafficking and cross-border crime. Those are the ICE agents who investigate, detain and deport immigrants who have entered the country illegally. Democrats are only slitting their own throats by advocating a move that would nearly certainly result in less security at the border, where criminal gangs and drug cartels are operating with impunity.
