These Democrats want to abolish ICE

It's short enough to fit on a bumper sticker - as does "Build the Wall", or "Abolish the IRS". The debate over the agency's future follows the widespread outcry in recent weeks after the Trump administration separated more than 2,000 migrant children from their parents, a decision that which he has since reversed. And if Penn's findings are correct, most Americans are now closer to President Trump than present-day Democratic leaders. "It is the policies, and the people making them, that need to change", said Murphy campaign spokeswoman Christie Stephenson. But Republicans are making a big push to convince voters that's exactly what Democrats do mean when they call for abolishing ICE. If you feel the agencies failures and unconscionable acts are too awful to overcome, demand that the Trump administration abolish ICE and rethink the immigration system with this petition. "They want to send people home who just cross the border, and they don't see asylum as just having violence in a country, but really asylum being for people who are being politically persecuted", he said. They are tougher and smarter than these rough criminal elelments (sic) that bad immigration laws allow into our country.

According to the Texas Observer, 19 agents asked DHS leadership to consider a restructure because they say the detention policies have hindered their ability to investigate non-immigration crimes. "We got to change the policy of this administration".

Last week, Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez used an "Abolish ICE" platform to win an upset victory, in New York's Democratic Primary, over 10-term Rep. Joe Crowley and rock-star status among liberals and anti-Trump activists.

However, the immigration issue is a tricky one in this area and cuts several different ways politically.

Of course, it's far too late for that, as they are now clearly in Trump's cross-hairs. "Red Hen", Colbert confirmed with a decisive nod, ending the call.

Perhaps no Trump policy has provoked more emotional reaction than the practice of separating illegal border crossers from the children they brought with them to the United States. The majority of the country sides with Democrats on immigration in general. "President Trump seems to think that the only way to have immigration rule is to rip parents from their family, is to treat rape victims and refugees like terrorists and to put children in cages".

"They (poll respondents) rejected family separation while narrowly favoring family detention", Penn said in an email exchange.

Penn's polling found other results broadly favorable to the Trump approach to immigration. Many lawmakers privately agree with these boosters. Even Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders dodged the question, saying only that he wanted to "create policies that deal with immigration in a rational way".

Even those who recoil at some of Trump's immigration policies and cite the family-separation policy as a wrong-headed, avoidable series of tragedies, don't think abolishing ICE is the answer. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., is among those who have endorsed the idea, while others, like Sen. Kamala Harris, another possible 2020 contender, did not. To that end, 80 percent (84 percent of Republicans, 79 percent of Democrats, and 78 percent of independents) favored hiring more immigration judges "to process people in custody faster". Both municipalities and immigrant communities are too afraid to cooperate with ICE at this point to provide the information the department has usually relied on.
