Andrew Gillum: Abolish ICE 'in its current form'

The new liberal rallying cry raises more questions than it answered.

It shows Homeland Security Investigations, a division of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), serving a federal search warrant related to the human trafficking of minors in West Oakland, California, as Bay City News reported at the time.

Sens. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., all floated as possible 2020 presidential candidates, have backed the call to abolish the agency.

Where do you stand on ICE? It's short enough to fit on a bumper sticker - as does "Build the Wall", or "Abolish the IRS".

"My priority is to abolish this administration's policy on immigration that separates parents from children and that denies people coming to this country to seek asylum for domestic abuse or gang violence", Cardin said. The party's position on immigration is unrecognizable to some Democrats. It also expresses the fear and outrage among immigrant communities who feel that ICE is terrorizing their neighborhoods. Republican Diane Harkey, a former state legislator who serves on the state's tax board, is vying against Democrat Mike Levin, an environmental lawyer. "We are calling for the abolition of Immigration and Customs Enforcement".

"Abolish ICE!" may make for good soundbite politics aimed at a small base of voters but what value does it have?

Russian Federation 2018, Round of 16: Uruguay vs Portugal match highlights
As well as Mbappe, Uruguay will have another tricky French forward, Antoine Griezmann, to contend with. Uruguay advanced to a quarterfinal against France , which beat Argentina 4-3 earlier Saturday.

"It's been really tough because we don't know what's going on in there", said Hadar Cohen, a protester who said she is a neighbor. They are tougher and smarter than these rough criminal (elements) that bad immigration laws allow into our country. Dems do not appreciate the great job they do!

And 53 percent said Trump was "exploiting the nation's immigration issue for political gain" compared with 44 percent who said he was interested in "resolving the nation's immigration issue". The city has asked ICE to get a judicial order to enforce such detainers, a step in the process the Trump administration refuses to follow.

"We can envision a blueprint for alternatives to detention" of the undocumented, the organizer said. In the last few weeks, more Democrats have joined the left-wing chorus of those who want to dismantle the agency.

President Donald Trump likened federal immigration enforcement to war on Tuesday, claiming that the work of deporting illegal immigrants is like "liberating a town or an area" in combat. The majority of the country sides with Democrats on immigration in general. "We need legislative reform that refocuses the agency on its intended objective, holds bad actors within the agency accountable and protects immigrants from Trump's heartless attacks". Meanwhile, 47 percent of respondents said he is not racist.

Penn's polling found other results favorable to the Trump approach to immigration. It's why so many Democratic lawmakers refuse to jump on the "Abolish ICE" bandwagon. Let us create a humane and rational immigration system. Many appalled protesters are looking for someone to be mad at besides Trump, and while ICE isn't responsible for rounding up and separating immigrant families at the border (that's Border Patrol), the anger being directed at ICE is warranted.
