President Trump defends ICE and policy of fighting illegal immigration

President Trump defends ICE and policy of fighting illegal immigration

Be smart: "Abolish ICE" is the flawless antithesis to Trump's "Build a wall": It represents an entire immigration ideology in one simple phrase that resonates with their base.

"But what I think it allows us to do is talk about the facts", he said.

"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".

"No special agent is going to stop me from talking".

Meanwhile, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's stance that ICE should be abolished has gained prominence since her longshot victory in Tuesday's Democratic congressional primary over U.S. Rep. Joe Crowley in NY.

In New York, far-left primary challenger and ICE opponent Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's shocked the party's establishment by beating Rep. Joseph Crowley, D-N.Y.

The White House has not commented on Vitiello or a permanent replacement.

"We need to rebuild our immigration system from top to bottom, starting by replacing ICE with something that reflects our morality", Warren said at a rally in Boston.

Cracks in the dam became visible 10 days ago, when a group of demonstrators confronted Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen at a Mexican restaurant in Washington. "There's a way to handle immigration properly, and we have to start working for that day".

President Donald Trump recently reversed course and signed an executive order aimed at keeping undocumented families together following public outcry over the separation of parents and children at the border.

Ocasio-Cortez has made abolishing ICE a core campaign promise. "Build something that actually works". "I have literally never seen Americans show up for immigrants like this", said Jess Morales Rocketto, political director at the National Domestic Workers Alliance, which represents nannies, housekeepers and caregivers, many of whom are immigrants.




Yet other Democrats fear that such a position is fraught for the party as Trump continues to paint immigrants as unsafe to put his political rivals on the defensive.

"This is a political suicide march for the Democratic Party", said the official.

Lake added: "Voters believe we need some enforcement of border security - not just for immigration, but for security". These are thoughts once relegated to the outermost fringes of the Democratic Party.

But, while it was unlikely to gain much traction on the right, Trump on Saturday backed ICE agents and said there was "zero chance" of ICE being abolished.

"But the abolish ICE debate oversimplifies everything", the aide said.

"The culmination of all those things, going to the border and then when the president started talking about getting rid of due process, was it", he said. Biden, however, has been critical of Trump's immigration policy as he considers a 2020 run.

But it also stressed the importance of other functions of the agency, such as investigating cybercrime and counter-narcotic operations, according to the Daily Beast.

ICE has been in the center of the backlash over Trump's strict policy, which had the agency arresting undocumented immigrants entering the country without using legal entry points.

During my trip to the southern border, it was clear that ICE, and its actions of hunting down and tearing apart families, has wreaked havoc on far too many people.

Vitiello is now the acting deputy commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
