Boston's "Families Belong Together" rally on June 30.

Video of neighbors protesting as U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents broke up a child sex trafficking ring in their neighborhood has resurfaced, as politicians and activists call for the agency to be abolished. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) have all called for the abolition of ICE after socialist congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez won a surprise victory in the primary for New York's 14th District with the policy at the heart of her campaign. "Before the encampment was cleared, Philly-based writer Malcolm Harris tweeted, "@PhillyMayor best believe if you won't defend our sanctuary city we'll find someone who will.

ICE "has become a deportation force", Sen.

Sen. Joe Manchin III, D-W.Va., is one of three red-state Democrats who voted past year to confirm Trump's first Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, and who Republicans hope will support this nominee.

But replace it with what? More moderate Democrats understand that allowing their radical left arm to drive the agenda on this issue would be political suicide.

Demonizing a government agency is an old, exhausted strategy - one that rarely if ever has worked. Penn's questions still do, at least in the way they are worded.

"I think many Vermonters would agree with the proposal that the Border Patrol should be operating at the border rather than conducting checkpoints 100 miles from the border", Davis said. Republicans saw those departments as symbols of everything that had gone awry in a sprawling, increasingly intrusive federal government. According to their website, they are a "a network of volunteer lawyers and community organizers who stand ready to respond to immigration raids and increased enforcement affecting Los Angeles County and beyond".

For Kenney, the "Occupy ICE" encampment made it less than three days before protesters were shoved to the ground and handcuffed with zip-ties, just steps from the Police Department's "Roundhouse" headquarters. He emphasized again that the policies are set by the President.

The White House tweeted at Democratic Sens. "Commerce, Education and the. what's the third one there?"

Building a wall and taking on unfair worldwide trade were perhaps the two most salient issues that sparked the movement of formerly Democratic voters in swing states such as Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania into Mr. Trump's winning ranks.

Oops. The reason ideas like this never get anywhere is that most Americans see these agencies as having vital missions to perform. "Most ICE offices and programs have a role in preventing terrorism". "In fact, ICE doesn't operate at the borders".

The agency was created in 2003 as part of the major government reorganization that took place in the wake of 9/11.

Calling for the elimination of ICE is ludicrious.

Abolishing ICE might be popular among the radical Left, but it is a platform unlikely to win votes among the majority of hard-working Americans.

Perhaps no Trump policy has provoked more emotional reaction than the practice of separating illegal border crossers from the children they brought with them to the U.S. There's no need to recount the number of times critics have called the president a Nazi, or a fascist, or just plain cruel.
