Authorities move to reopen ICE facility in SW Portland

Homeland Security police officers are trying to re-open Thursday an ICE facility in Portland Ore. that was shut down by protesters Letter: Criminal investigations hampered by deportations, detentions

In a tweet Sunday morning, President Trump said those who work in ICE are safe. "ICE has lost trust".

Eighty-year-olds with "Abolish ICE" pins on their walkers joined families with babies in strollers in the "Families Belong Together" march, which started in Foley Square, the site of New York Immigration Court, and crossed Brooklyn Bridge to Cadman Plaza, near the federal courthouse. ICE is under scrutiny as President Trump's "zero-tolerance" policies at the southern border have led to family separations, ultimately sparking nationwide protests Saturday.

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

"I was proud to join @QueensBarrios today for our #KeepFamilesTogether march in Jackson Heights and Corona, some of the most diverse neighborhoods in the United States (and the world!)", Ocasio-Cortez tweeted after attending the event.

"The president's deeply immoral actions have made it obvious: We need to rebuild our immigration system from top to bottom, starting by replacing ICE with something that reflects our morality and that works", Warren said. Her jacket had "I really don't care".

A former spokesman for ICE has defended his former colleagues by saying that the agents who are taking children from their parents and locking them in cages feel bad about it.

Rep. Mark Pocan (D-WI) is now hammering out legislation to abolish the agency.

"Referring to Schwab's description of the statements in question, ICE spokeswoman Liz Johnson told CNN, 'We disagree with Mr. Schwab on this issue and dispute his characterization".

Several prominent Democrats who are mulling a bid for the White House in 2020 have sought to bolster their progressive credentials by calling for major changes to immigration enforcement, with some pressing for the outright abolition of the federal government's chief immigration enforcement agency. She added, "Instead of being insulted with politically-motivated attacks, the men and women of ICE should be praised for risking life and limb every day in the name of national security and public safety".

"It's upsetting. Families being separated, children in cages", said Emilia Ramos, a cleaner in the district, fighting tears at the rally. The order also vastly expanded Ice's immigration enforcement powers, enabling agents to target essentially any undocumented migrant in the country.

"To the great and courageous men and women of ICE, do not worry or lose your spirit", Trump wrote in one tweet. ICE's time has come and gone; it is broken.

She was followed by Sen. "We should create something better, something different".
