Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., joins activists at the Supreme Court as President Donald Trump prepares to choose a replacement for Justice Anthony Kennedy, in Washington. Several prominent Democrats who are mulling a bid for the White House in 2020 sought to bolster their progressive credentials this week by calling for major changes to immigration enforcement, with some pressing for the outright abolition of the federal government’s chief immigration enforcement agency. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York has said Immigration and Customs Enforcement, known as ICE, has “become a deportation force.”

‘Abolish ICE,’ the left says

From CNN: “With the President grossly misusing ICE and the agency broken beyond repair, I'm proposing legislation to abolish the agency.”

2. Abolish ICE. It’s doing more harm than good. 

From USA TODAY: “The idea of abolishing ICE is not radical or without merit. It's harming immigrant communities and hampering investigations, and we don't need it.”

3. These Democrats want to abolish ICE

From CNN: “More Democrats have joined the growing list of names who want to abolish US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, more commonly known as ICE.”
