ICE chief Thomas Homan blames Congress for border separations

ICE chief Thomas Homan blames Congress for border separations

A loose but emerging coalition of politicians, activists and pro-immigrant protesters has deployed posters and slogans in its calls for the dismantling of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, which critics say has treated some would-be immigrants cruelly and unfairly.

In a couple of weekend tweets, Trump praised ICE as "one of the smartest, toughest and most spirited law enforcement groups" and said there's "Zero chance" that the border security agency will be abolished.

ICE and the Department of Homeland Security came under increased national scrutiny recently for their enforcement of a "zero-tolerance" policy that led to the separation of migrant children from their families at the US southern border.

On CNN Thursday, Gillibrand said ICE has "become a deportation force" and said, "you should get rid of it, start over, reimagine it and build something that actually works". Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made it a central plank of the campaign that led to her upset victory in New York's congressional primary this week.

"I'm here because I'm disgusted, outraged, and frightened by our government", Lisa Zieger, a 66-year-old Newark resident, said.

Trump's comments come as another senator, Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., expressed her support for replacing the agency at a Saturday rally protesting Trump's "zero tolerance" immigration policy.

"I'm a mom, and I think everyone I know that I've talked to about this issue has had a very visceral reaction", Sharaf said.

Republican politicians and attendant strategists seem to be welcoming this latest shift in the Democratic party paradigm, sensing that it may cause further internal fracture as well as form as a winning wedge for them with American voters, particularly those voters living outside of strong blue enclaves such as California and NY.

Earlier this week, the Texas Observer reported that 19 senior ICE investigators asked DHS Secretary Kristjen Nielsen to spin the Homeland Security Investigations division out of ICE.

Democrats have responded to the nationwide outcry over young immigrant children being separated from their parents to bring more attention to the #AbolishICE movement that calls for the agency to be disbanded entirely.

On Monday, Wisconsin Democratic Rep. Mark Pocan of Wisconsin introduced the first-ever bill to abolish the immigration enforcement agency.

"No matter what they do, we are here to stay", Sinclair said.
