Trump Rejects Calls To Abolish ICE: 'Zero Chance, It Will Never Happen!'

  • An encampment with the Occupy ICE movement grew in June 2018 in front of Portland's US Immigration and Customs Enforcement field offices

"It just seemed like two thugs coming to the door and threatening me", Schwab said.

"I'm here because I'm disgusted, outraged, and frightened by our government", the Newark resident continued. Singer-songwriter Alicia Keys read a letter written by a woman whose child had been taken away from her at the border. Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris, along with other Senate Democrats, wrote to the department's inspector general asking for an investigation into Schwab's resignation after the former spokesman said he resigned over misleading statements from agency officials in connection with an ICE raid.

In New York City, thousands began chanting "shame!" and singing "shut detention down!" before their planned march across the Brooklyn Bridge. Organizers said 20,000 turned up, though the NYPD declined to confirm the figure.

The Trump Administration isn't backing down.

"I care! Do you?" read Joan Culwell's T-shirt as she joined a rally in Denver.

Southgate set to make eight changes to England side against Belgium
Phil Jones expects England's final group game against Belgium to bear all the hallmarks of a Premier League encounter. However, it was never proved if the match was thrown, but henceforth all final group matches were played together.

Federal authorities early Thursday dismantled and cleared a portion of the tent city where protesters have been blocking the Immigration and Customs Enforcement building here, arresting at least eight people who had taken part in a lengthy effort to prevent federal workers from entering their offices. "Abolish ICE" was a popular sign on the Brooklyn Bridge and elsewhere around the country.

"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", Mr. Trump tweeted. It's important. It shows people how we feel. Officers were holding a boundary line between federal and private property, and they would maintain a round-the-clock security presence "for some time", he said.

"Dorrie Lubowsky, 55, of Midwood, Brooklyn, said she was there because she is a child of two Holocaust survivors". All I can say is, I hope they keep it up. "We've got to come out while we still have a voice to be heard".

The issue is getting traction after this week's surprise upset by 28-year-old Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who made "Abolish ICE" a central tenet of her campaign against Rep. Joe Crowley, who had been the king of Queens.

Democratic leaders have also refrained from calling for the outright elimination of ICE, instead focusing on reforming the agency. Kirsten Gillibrand and Mayor Bill de Blasio have added their support to the cause. 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.
