"The Democrats are making a strong push to abolish ICE, one of the smartest, toughest and most spirited law enforcement groups of men and women that I have ever seen", Mr. Trump tweeted.

Special Agents in charge of 19 different regions in the US signed a letter to the secretary of Homeland Security, asking her make them separate from Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

President Donald Trump has slammed the idea of abolishing ICE. "Even if they don't say 'abolish ICE, ' they can't not address it". Ocasio-Cortez is a self-described "democratic-socialist", who ran on abolishing ICE.

Though many who show up to the rallies across the country will be seasoned anti-Trump demonstrators, others are new to immigration activism, including parents who say they feel compelled to show up after heart-wrenching accounts of children forcibly taken from their families as they crossed the border illegally.

U.S. lawmakers are voicing the same demand, along with human rights organizations, who note that ICE is a relatively recent creation.

"Occupy ICE" camps have also been set up in several US states.

"Referring to Schwab's description of the statements in question, ICE spokeswoman Liz Johnson told CNN, 'We disagree with Mr. Schwab on this issue and dispute his characterization".

Vitiello is the current acting deputy commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and has served as a senior Border Patrol agent for several years. Officers were holding a boundary line between federal and private property, and they would maintain a round-the-clock security presence "for some time", he said. "So I beg everyone, please release these children, give my son back to me", she said through an interpreter, weeping.

"Because of (ICE's) reputation, no one wants to talk to them because they are afraid they are going to be deported", he said.

Republicans and immigration hardliners have welcomed the Democratic shift on the issue, believing that it spells electoral victory for the GOP outside of Democratic enclaves like NY and California. "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". "I think "Abolish ICE" is where it is today because of her leadership".

A federal judge ruled Tuesday that immigration authorities must unite families separated along the border within 30 days.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen announced the move, calling Mr. Vitiello a "well-respected career law enforcement officer" and promised he would be a good advocate for agents and officers.
