US representative from Wisconsin proposes dismantling of ICE

US representative from Wisconsin proposes dismantling of ICE

Ronald D. Vitiello, who has been serving as the acting deputy commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, is now ICE's acting director and deputy director.

ICE provided data to The New York Times showing that 796 members of MS-13 were arrested in the fiscal year that ended in September, and 405 were arrested in the first quarter of the current fiscal year.

Gillibrand called for an all-out elimination of ICE.

"I believe that [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] has become a deportation force ... and that's why I believe you should get rid of it, start over, reimagine it and build something that actually works", Gillibrand said on Thursday.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who beat Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley of NY in the primary last week, ran on a platform of abolishing the agency, and so far, more lawmakers have echoed her call. Activists here had called for a shutdown of the nation's detention centers, immediate reunification of children with their families, asylum for all immigrant parents detained trying to enter the United States, and the abolition of ICE.

The Democrats calling for the elimination of ICE aren't obscure backbenchers. "I don't think ICE today is working as intended", she said, to Cuomo's apparent surprise. "When you see the interior immigration enforcement policies where we're targeting the wrong people and no longer going after the criminals. And after ICE is changed as an agency, there will be enforcement of immigration laws", said Jayapal.

Though other Democrats, including party leaders in the Senate and House, have not gone that far in their criticism, the debate over ICE has thrust an agency with 20,000 employees into the public spotlight after years of whiplash over the scope of its central mission since its founding in 2003.

"We saved 904 children through our investigations from being exploited, being raped, being molested, being filmed", he pointed out, according to the Examiner.

"We are always going to need immigration enforcement, Martha, we know that".

"To the great and fearless men and women of ICE, do not worry or lose your spirit", the president tweeted. "We don't need "family-friendly" cages". Immigration enforcement is important, both sides agree on that.

"Over the last two weeks, groups advocating for the migrant families have held protests outside ICE offices over this issue, including outside ICE's Washington headquarters on Wednesday, and marches in various cities", Giaritelli continued.

But the truth is that abolishing ICE isn't that radical.
