The agents work in ICE's Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) unit, which focuses on crimes including drug trafficking, human smuggling, and child pornography.

But the latest ICE protest, this time in the shadows of City Hall Friday evening didn't stop at a call for change in US Immigration Policy. "Its aggressiveness has made it no longer able to work in communities". Berman asked. "It could be ICE, it could be another agency in the future?"

Trump's defence of ICE was posted after some critics of the administration said the agency should be shut down. "They liberate towns. These are incredible people". "You are doing a fantastic job of keeping us safe by eradicating the worst criminal elements".

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen announced that Ronald D. Vitiello, a former top Border Patrol official, would take over as acting chief.

With an annual budget of about $6 billion, the agency employs more than 20,000 people in more than 400 offices in the US and 46 foreign countries.

Trump gets chance to reshape top court
A Tuesday Supreme Court ruling on the president's controversial travel ban made clear how this habit can be used against him. A furious Trump bashed the courts and his own Justice Department, but was forced to recast the ban again.

Gas prices, which have soared in recent weeks, spiked again Tuesday on news that the State Department is pressuring USA allies to cut off all oil imports from Iran - a policy that would sharply restrict global supplies.

Since Trump's election, immigration agents are arresting more undocumented immigrants, including those without criminal records, according to a USA Today analysis of federal data released in May.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions put the immigration policy into place in April. Over the final two years of the Obama administration, that number was 86 percent.

"I think its a winning issue for him", said Leon Fresco, an immigration lawyer who served as an aide to Sen. Immigration enforcement is important, both sides agree on that. And eight people were arrested outside an ICE building in Portland, Ore., that has been closed because of a round-the-clock demonstration.

Fox News is scrambling in response to the grass-roots movement to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which has begun seeping into mainstream progressive and Democratic politics. Those who want to abolish it - and there's already a bill in Congress to do so - believe that its culture has become irredeemably abusive and its responsibilities need to be distributed elsewhere within the government. But the agency has been criticized by liberal activists for its tactics, including workplace raids and the deportation of undocumented immigrants whose children are US citizens.
