Authorities move to reopen ICE facility in SW Portland

When Martinez tried to enter she claims she was pushed back by an ICE agent and not allowed

ICE operates under Nielsen's Department of Homeland Security.

Immigrant advocacy groups say they're thrilled - and surprised - to see the issue gaining traction among those not tied to immigration.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the 28-year-old former bartender who suddenly rose to prominence after defeating Rep. Joe Crowley in a New York Democratic congressional primary last week, started the calls to abolish ICE. "I don't think ICE today is working as intended", she said.

Many anti-Trump activists, who are driving the Twitter hashtag #abolishICE, have celebrated the moves by Gillibrand, Harris and others.

Protesters said they plan to stay in what remains of the tent city, and Thursday some were holding signs, blowing bubbles or playing music - Eazy-E and Wipers - aimed toward the federal officers.

Later, de Blasio tweeted his support for abolishing ICE.

If it seems like ICE and immigration policy in general is in the news just about every day - you're right.

Immigration attorney Linda Rivas said groups have met with USA authorities, congressional representatives and other leaders to discuss an escalating immigration crackdown that they say began decades ago.

The president's approach to immigration has come under renewed scrutiny since the revelation that the administration's "zero-tolerance" policy involved the separation of families at the U.S. -Mexico border.

Indeed, the would-be presidential candidates haven't yet detailed what they propose in ICE's place. "ICE will continue conducting operations to execute its mission and bring to justice those subjects who jeopardize the sanctity of our immigration laws and the safety of our citizens", said Gregory Brawley, director of ICE's Enforcement and Removal Operations field office in Philadelphia.

ICE has been in the center of the storm over family separations at the border. He also voted in 2006 for a Bush administration-backed border security measure. "The city of Portland does not enforce federal immigration law, and I have been clear that Portland police will not be used to break up a nonviolent occupation on federal property of a federal agency that has its own police force". "We know that when people have a outcome for illegal activity they do less of it and that's what we're trying to accomplish here". But local organizers are shouldering on-the-ground planning, many of them women relying on informal networks established during worldwide women's marches on Trump's inauguration and its anniversary.

"Martin Luther King never said, 'Black power, '" Stamp said.
