President Trump defends ICE and policy of fighting illegal immigration

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

U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan claims the agency's practices under Republican President Donald Trump's administration have indelibly tarnished its reputation.

Ocasio-Cortez is one of many progressives who has called for ICE to be abolished.

USA lawmakers are voicing the same demand, along with human rights organizations, who note that ICE is a relatively recent creation.

"We're trying to discourage this activity", said Vitiello. "We're doing what you told us to do". "And we need to build into any new structure the ability for ICE as an agency or whatever the new agency is, to be accountable back to congress".

The agency absorbed numerous investigative and detention and deportation duties of the U.S. Customs Service and former Immigration and Naturalization Service. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) have in common with almost 20 U.S.

Presumably, those lamentable practices include incidents like one in Kansas City, Missouri, where an ICE agent assaulted an immigration lawyer who was reuniting a child kidnapped by the Trump administration with her mother.

"Freedom of speech and peaceful assembly are sacred rights enjoyed by all Americans and the U.S. attorney's office is committed to protecting these rights", said U.S. Attorney Billy J. Williams.

While Philadelphia is a so-called sanctuary city, officials had maintained that they would honor Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainers as long as they included a criminal arrest order signed by a judge. Over the final two years of the Obama administration, that number was 86 percent.

Nielsen said that under "his exceptional leadership, the men and women of ICE have made significant progress in restoring the rule of law to our immigration system and countering criminals such as human smugglers and those attempting to exploit children". "And these are the ones - 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", he added.

Right-wing activists with the group Patriot Prayer also have a permit to march later in the day Saturday and the Portland Police Bureau said Friday they planned to have a heavy police presence.

This aide said the party should focus on "the cruelty of the actions around family separations and some of the ridiculous tactics used by ICE to bully state and local governments" to comply with federal immigration detainers. Dozens of people shut down a government meeting in MI in protest of a contract with Immigration and Customs Enforcement to house detainees at a local jail.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who sought the Democratic nomination in 2016 and is mulling another run, has stopped short of his colleagues' calls to dismantle ICE.
