More than a dozen Ice agents call for agency to be abolished

Meanwhile, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's stance that ICE should be abolished has gained prominence since her longshot victory in Tuesday's Democratic congressional primary over U.S. Rep. Joe Crowley in NY.

In a following tweet, he says abolition will "never happen!"

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

In an interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo Thursday, Gillibrand said that the agency should be "reimagined" with a "very different mission". On Tuesday, U.S. House candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez delivered a stunning Democratic primary upset in NY after campaigning on abolishing the agency, which was formed in 2003 as part of a post-9/11 federal overhaul that created the Department of Homeland Security. "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".

"I think we need to abolish ICE".

"They were blaring rock music all night, pulling all sorts of shenanigans in the windows, acting like frat boys, putting on masks", Jacob Bureros, an Occupy ICE PDX spokesperson, said.

"Even the cops don't like us anymore, because they're listening to the news also", said an agent who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

"I am pleased that ICE will continue to be led by an experienced and well-respected career law enforcement officer who will be a strong advocate for the agency's workforce", she added.




"If we can fix the Flores settlement agreement, we can keep the families together in a family facility until they see the judge, but they failed to fix it".

ROSE: Immigration hard-liners praise ICE, saying it's finally enforcing the laws on the books, and not much is likely to change under President Trump.

ICE did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Sperling said the goal was not to end the protest, but to make the building accessible to employees who are likely to return to work next week.

Pocan noted that ICE's duties do not include monitoring the nation's borders and deporting those who enter the country illegally.

Whatever the details, the focus on ICE could cause problems for some potential candidates with more conservative records on immigration.

Trump seems to relish the prospect of Democrats making the abolishment of ICE a campaign issue.

As the Texas Observer reported, the Department of Homeland Security "shifted HSI funds to other parts of ICE to cover the costs of civil immigration enforcement, including $34.5 million in 2016".
