Sanders breaks with Democrats calling for dismantling ICE

"Bernie calls for abolishing our entire immigration system, which is honestly way further to the left than exclusively abolishing ICE", Max Rivlin-Nadler, immigration and criminal justice reporter for The Appeal, argued in response to Sanders" statement.

President Donald Trump in a speech in West Virginia Tuesday defended the agency.

He stopped short of calling for the agency to be fully abolished, a proposal that has gained steam among advocates and lawmakers on the left.

The vast majority - 88 percent - opposed separating illegal immigrant families while they are in the USA, and they blamed the Trump administration for the policy. Penn asked. Sixty-three percent (66 percent of Republicans, 63 percent of Democrats, and 59 percent of independents) supported the plan. Kirsten Gillibrand of NY told CNN Immigration and Customs Enforcement has "become a deportation force" and wants to get rid of it and start over. Sen. Kamala Harris, another possible 2020 contender, did not.

Around the country, this sentiment is being echoed by several prominent Democrats seeking to bolster their progressive credentials. Sen. In that sense, with diverted attention, the country is less safe from the very national security threats the Trump administration is supposedly so concerned about. A similar incident happened on Tuesday which led to the arrests of almost 30 protesters. Ultimately, the president signed an executive order to end the practice. Trump has sent a series of conflicting messages on immigration to Congress. "So abolishing ICE isn't realistic and doesn't make any sense". If it's reorganizing the Department of Homeland Security and changing the functions of ICE, having greater accountability, abolishing that agency altogether, that's fine. That was the right vote. "This Administration is attacking immigrants on a multitude of fronts and we must resist on all of them".

"That will mean restructuring the agencies that enforce our immigration laws, including ICE", Sanders wrote, noting that he opposed the establishment of ICE in 2002. But the policy resulted in an estimated 2,400 children being separated from the adults who illegally brought them into the country.

The "Abolish ICE" movement is gaining ground and getting the attention of some Democrats in Congress, including Washington Rep. Pramila Jayapal.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., took a break from plagiarizing recipes for a Pow Wow Chow cookbook to lend her support.

Leahy argued that the Trump administration has directed the agencies to act outside of their mission. Thirty-six percent said they should be allowed to stay.

"That's all we are asking, that they are able to quell our fears", Romero said. "They can not be ordered by the White House to basically ignore their mission and the law, and that's what's happening".

Last month, after nearly a year of litigation, a US district judge ruled in favor of Philadelphia in its "sanctuary city" case against the White House.

"It's more important to replace Trump", he said. "This is one of many reasons we fly these flags upside down", protester Michael Mihalakis (known as Meko Haze) posted on his Facebook account Thursday. "Otherwise, we need to thoroughly reevaluate and re-think immigration enforcement", he said in a post to his website. They want to deal with people who are here fairly.

Middlebury College political science professor emeritus Eric Davis said that the push to abolish the agency is a larger reaction to Trump's immigration approach.

Reading Penn's questions, and the respondents' answers, it was hard not to think of the presidency of Bill Clinton, for whom Penn worked in the 1990s.
