These Democrats want to abolish ICE

"Instead of using ICE to prevent terrorism, human smuggling, drug cartels and pursuing violent criminals, as it was created to do, Trump has abused his power to tear children from their parents and torment innocent families in search of a better life", Graham said. The problem is that the agency is responsible for a core government function: enforcing the nation's immigration laws. I want to make sure that they can contribute to their maximum potential as USA citizens.

Trump blamed Democrats for not being supportive of the country's Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, which helps patrol the border.

Just 25 percent of likely USA voters favor getting rid of ICE and 55 percent are opposed.

Vice President Mike Pence reiterated that the administration stands with ICE as he delivered remarks at the agency's headquarters.

The result was a substantial majority said illegal border crossers, and the children they brought, should be returned to home countries.

President Donald Trump accused Democrats of "demeaning" border agents as he once again pushed back against critics who called for abolishing ICE following his administration's child separation policy. "They want to send people home who just cross the border, and they don't see asylum as just having violence in a country, but really asylum being for people who are being politically persecuted", he said. "We know that there's a lot of injustices that are happening and we care for our neighbors and we care for immigration rights". Those who came here by choice to provide for themselves and their families, those who are called to and inspired by this country, I want them to be able to be free from the fear of deportation, to be able to continue to contribute to the success of their communities, to be on an earned path to citizenship. And more recently, ICE allegedly detained 92 immigrants on a plane for almost two days in what advocates called "slave ship" conditions.

Kenney spokeswoman Deana Gamble said the mayor shared activists' frustration with ICE.

"I think there's no question that we've got to critically re-examine ICE and its role and the way that it is being administered and the work it is doing", she told MSNBC. I will not allow the flawless to become the enemy of the good.

This is very controversial, the Trump administration argues that it allows for the release of risky immigrants. There doesn't seem to be a lot of nuance or middle ground. And I think he's, frankly, defining the conversation from the beginning in a way that doesn't benefit the American people, doesn't benefit the taxpayers and actually puts our national security at risk. There's no need to recount the number of times critics have called the president a Nazi, or a fascist, or just plain cruel.

Democratic Senate candidate Beto O'Rourke has resisted pressure to jump on the "Abolish ICE" train, but the congressman fell short of taking the idea entirely off the table during a recent interview with KUT-FM.

Congresswoman, thank you so much for speaking to us. "You know, it's like the same thing".
