Trump tweeted Saturday morning from New Jersey that 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". According to Trump, the abolition of ICE "will never happen".

This came on the same day as a protest in downtown Dallas of family separations at the U.S. -Mexico border.

On CNN Thursday, Gillibrand said ICE has "become a deportation force" and said, "you should get rid of it, start over, reimagine it and build something that actually works".

"Well I hope they keep thinking about it". President Donald Trump has since signed an executive order reinforcing the policy but asking that families be held together, instead of separately.

A federal judge ruled Tuesday that immigration authorities must unite families separated along the border within 30 days. "They are escaping conditions that us imperialism caused".

In Washington and across the country, thousands of people rallied to oppose the Trump administration's draconian immigration policies, including in Portland where dozens of protesters set up a protest camp next to an ICE facility.
