"Right before ICE was established - which is a new agency, It's only been established in the last many years - there was enforcement of immigration laws". And it's a growing movement.

Ocasio-Cortez has made abolishing ICE a core campaign promise. The order also vastly expanded Ice's immigration enforcement powers, enabling agents to target essentially any undocumented migrant in the country. NPR's Joel Rose reports.

The problems occurred as two opposing protest groups - Patriot Prayer and antifa - took to the streets.

In Trump's hometown of New York City, another massive crowd poured across the Brooklyn Bridge in sweltering 90-degree heat, some carrying their children on their shoulders, chanting, "Shame!"

Recently, "Occupy ICE" protests have sprung up across the nation.

Several other prominent Democrats have joined her call, including Sen.

BUREROS: It has not been around that long, and it does not need to exist.

DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen says the new nominee has the leadership needed to accomplish the crucial national security missions facing the country today. And now a handful of Democratic lawmakers in Congress think it should be eliminated or reorganized to deport fewer immigrants. On Tuesday, upstart progressive candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 28-year-old middle class Latina from the Bronx, shocked the political world by unseating longtime Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley in a NY primary. She spoke to NPR's Morning Edition. "We're not talking about shutting off the united states from the world".

ICE, which is tasked with immigration enforcement away from US borders, has been "emboldened" to inhumanely round up illegal immigrants and deport them, critics say.

Marchers gathered in Raleigh, in Pittsburgh, in Louisville, in Houston, in Antler, North Dakota, population 27. "I know people aren't sympathetic to deportation officers, but they have a rough time with this too and I think more so under this administration". It's not nice, but their mean.

In May, ICE conducted a weeklong enforcement operation targeting criminal aliens throughout Philadelphia that resulted 49 arrests. Singer-songwriter Alicia Keys read a letter written by a woman whose child had been taken away from her at the border. It's something that's been going on for a while.

Kevin Kelly, the agent in charge of Buffalo's Homeland Security Investigations office, is one of those who signed. "Even if they don't say 'abolish ICE, ' they can't not address it". The office had been closed for more than a week because of an occupation by activists.
