Washington Rep. Adam Smith talks "abolish ICE", Trump, immigration reform

The new liberal rallying cry raises more questions than it answered.

"That will mean restructuring the agencies that enforce our immigration laws, including ICE", Sanders said.

The common vein running through the Nutter and Kenney administrations is "Occupy", the catch-all descriptor for many progressive-led protests throughout the country. "You get rid of ICE, you're going to have a country that you're going to be afraid to walk out of your house", he told Fox News. It's short enough to fit on a bumper sticker - as does "Build the Wall", or "Abolish the IRS". And if Penn's findings are correct, most Americans are now closer to President Trump than present-day Democratic leaders. It also expresses the fear and outrage among immigrant communities who feel that ICE is terrorizing their neighborhoods.

- Fifteen percent of us registered voters said immigration was the top issue determining how they will cast their ballot in November, while 14 percent said the economy was their biggest concern.

Activists calling for an end to the city's contract with ICE have been camped outside the building on Cherry Street in Center City for four days. "Which, I know, is not what people who say "abolish ICE' only want-they too want to change our entire immigration system".

"When we have an "infestation" of MS-13 GANGS in certain parts of our country, who do we send to get them out?"

Congressional Democrats fared worse, with 60 percent saying they were more interested in political gain and 34 percent said they wanted to resolve the issue.

Voters, meanwhile, were more split on whether they believe Trump's immigration policies are based on a genuine interest in controlling the country's borders or racism.

Sexton is next step in Cavaliers' new era of player development
Young could maybe sell tickets and generate a little buzz in a way no one else in Thursday's NBA Draft (7 p.m., ESPN ) could. Collin Sexton to the Cleveland Cavaliers? Sexton averaged 19.2 points and 3.6 assists as a freshman for the Crimson Tide.

Sen. Bill Nelson dismissed the idea on Monday, quipping the Tampa Bay Times, "We ought to abolish Trump".

"I think it's incredibly important to lay out our principles, our vision".

However, the immigration issue is a tricky one in this area and cuts several different ways politically.

Customs and Border Protection, the parent agency for the Border Patrol, had the hard task of separating children from adults claiming to be their parents until a public firestorm forced President Trump to put a halt to the practice via executive order in June. It is CBP agents who have been charged with enforcing the administration's "zero tolerance" policy, detaining migrants and asylum seekers at the border and initiating the separation of undocumented families.

The poll showed that 49 per cent of respondents thought Mr Trump was racist, while 47 per cent said he was not. A majority of voters have consistently supported giving DREAMers a path to citizenship. Many lawmakers privately agree with these boosters.

As recently as three weeks ago, advocating the elimination of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement would have been unthinkable for any well-known Democrat.

The memo, obtained by The Daily Beast concluded that "abolishing ICE without changing President Trump's disastrous immigration policy will not solve the problem". Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) told CNN. Kamala Harris, another possible 2020 contender, did not.

Is the debate over ICE's existence worth having? Agents of the Immigration and Naturalization Service previously handled immigration enforcement. During his presidency, Bill Clinton helped create numerous laws we still use to deport people.
