ICE Names New Acting Director Amid Immigration Turmoil

Homeland Security dismantles 'Occupy ICE' encampment in Detroit In 'Stunning Indictment', ICE Officers Call for Own Agency to Be Dissolved Amid Growing Outrage Over Immigration Policy

In a pair of tweets from his private golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, Trump forcefully defended the performance of Immigration and Customs Enforcement and lambasted Democrats as pushing a "radical left" agenda to abolish it, even though only a handful have publicly supported doing so. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and upcoming 28-year-old socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who upset her Democratic incumbent rival in the state's primary on Tuesday.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio tweeted yesterday: "ICE is broken, it's divisive and it should be abolished".

"Between Maxine Waters and Nancy Pelosi and getting rid of ICE and having open borders and the biggest thing - you have open borders". But ICE is actually two agencies: the Enforcement and Removal Operations division, or ERO, and Homeland Security Investigations, or HSI.

Schwab also defended ICE agents during an interview on "The Van Jones Show", which airs at 7 p.m., ET, on Sunday, saying, "These are parents themselves".

The groups said their goal is to have ICE abolished and get lawmakers to stop "caging migrants" in detention facilities.

Vitiello replaces Thomas Homan, who announced in May he would be retiring and leaving his post. ICE is not reasonable law enforcement.

Lake added: "Voters believe we need some enforcement of border security - not just for immigration, but for security".

But a Trump tweet this morning showed how easy the issue will be to demagogue: "To the great and fearless men and women of ICE, do not worry or lose your spirit". By contrast, 20 percent wanted family separation through arrests and jailing of parents.

Democrats and immigrants have ramped up their protests of late - as the midterm elections approach - to push their immigration reform agenda.

Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), who was among a group of roughly 600 people arrested this week following a protest inside the Hart Senate Office Building in Washington, DC, appeared on CNN's this morning and explained why ICE as it now exists is untenable. "I think we know that. That's the problem; it's the Trump policy that's the problem at our border".

Following a backlash over the now-defunct family separation policy was enacted at the US southern border, Trump has increasingly cited crimes committed by undocumented immigrants as a pressing issue for the administration to deal with, despite statistics showing undocumented immigrants are less likely to commit crimes in America, The Washington Post reported at the beginning of the year.
