Following a backlash over the now-defunct family separation policy was enacted at the US southern border, Trump has increasingly cited crimes committed by undocumented immigrants as a pressing issue for the administration to deal with, despite statistics showing undocumented immigrants are less likely to commit crimes in America, The Washington Post reported at the beginning of the year.

Democrats have responded to the nationwide outcry over children of illegal immigrants being separated from their parents to bring more attention to the #AbolishICE movement that calls for the agency to be disbanded entirely.

The issue is getting traction after this week's surprise upset by 28-year-old Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who made "Abolish ICE" a central tenet of her campaign against Rep. Joe Crowley, who had been the king of Queens.

Eleanor was one of thousands who marched across Brooklyn Bridge, where many drivers honked in support.

Shortly after appearing on the show, the senator took to social media to elaborate she had come around to support the opinion ICE was now a "deportation force" and needed to be replaced with "something that actually works". "I'm here for the long haul", she said.

Germany leaves Russian Federation after crashing out of the World Cup
Having lost to Uruguay 3:0 Russian Federation still made it to the 1/8 finals where it is going to face the Spanish team. The 29-year-old has been regularly criticised for failing to produce consistent displays for the north London side.

On Monday, Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Wis., said he would introduce legislation to eliminate the agency.

Calls to abolish the Immigration and Customs Enforcement, a Homeland Security agency tasked with enforcing immigration laws, reached a fever pitch this week when well-known Democratic politicians joined the fight to shut down the agency.

A former spokesman for ICE has defended his former colleagues by saying that the agents who are taking children from their parents and locking them in cages feel bad about it.

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently stated, "The president often says a country without borders, is not a country". "If it's a binary choice and people think it's the end of immigration enforcement, that's not a good place for us to be".

"We're calling out the state of OR for allowing ICE ... to operate within our borders", Sinclair said.

Angel Padilla, policy director at the grassroots group Indivisible, said ICE "terrorizes communities" and that Gillibrand's move "demonstrates where the progressive base is". His "zero tolerance policy" led officials to take more than 2,000 children from their parents as they tried to enter the country illegally, majority fleeing violence, persecution or economic collapse in their home countries. "Four years ago, over 3,000 Santa Maria residents rallied to oppose the ICE facility, citing ICE's inhumane practices, objections which were ignored by city council at the time".

As a result, children were separated from their families and held first in "processing centers", then in shelters.
