New York Mayor Bill DeBlasio (D) said that the agency has "become a punitive, negative tool for division", and that its existence is "no longer acceptable". "Zero chance, It will never happen!" he added.

Fox News is scrambling in response to the grass-roots movement to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which has begun seeping into mainstream progressive and Democratic politics.

Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) became the first USA senator to join the growing ranks of progressives who want to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

While Gillibrand may have become the first sitting senator to signal her support for abolition on Thursday, a few of her colleagues in the House had already singled their support for the issue.

More than 600 marches could draw hundreds of thousands of people across the country, from immigrant-friendly cities like Los Angeles and New York City to conservative Appalachia and Wyoming under the banner Families Belong Together. One of the reasons the investigators want to leave ICE is because the political nature of immigration enforcement is making it harder for them to get their work done. "I don't think ICE today is working as intended", she said, to Cuomo's apparent surprise.

The heightened attention to ICE has also come from people like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the upset victor of a New York City primary earlier this week, who has led the calls to abolish the agency and reorganize immigration enforcement in the US.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement chief Tom Homan is serving his last day Friday as the controversial face of the Trump administration's crackdown on illegal immigration retires.

"It's much more aggressive in who it's going after throughout the country", said the Democrat whose district includes Iowa and Lafayette counties. Detroit protesters say they had some success in hampering ICE operations when they blocked some employees from entering the building Monday morning.

A federal judge ruled Tuesday that immigration authorities must unite families separated along the border within 30 days.

But Hemanth Gundavaram, co-director of the Immigrant Justice Clinic at Northeastern University in Boston, said ICE has been diverted from its stated mission, used as a tool by President Donald Trump to implement his "racist and xenophobic" immigration policy.

Ocasio-Cortez has made abolishing ICE a core campaign promise. A media relations contact with ICE's Detroit field office did not respond to email and telephone inquiries about the impact of the protest. The ICE blockade subsequently grew into a tent city with "more than 80 tents, four portable toilets, six couches, a commissary and a medic's office".

Homeland Security Investigations, which includes more than 6,000 agents, describes itself as an investigative arm of the Department of Homeland Security and a vital asset in "combating criminal organizations illegally exploiting America's travel, trade, financial and immigration systems".
