Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) became the first US senator to join the growing ranks of progressives who want to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

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

Rep. Mark Pocan (D-WI) is now hammering out legislation to abolish the agency. "And I think that you should separate the criminal justice from the immigration issues and I think you should reimagine ICE under a new agency with a very different mission". In the House, three Democrats support abolishing ICE and a fourth, Rep. Mark Pocan (WI), introduced legislation to abolish ICE and investigate possibilities for "a humane immigration enforcement system".

"Some of these risky individuals had been released to the streets instead of being turned over to ICE on our detainers, which compromises the safety of the homeland that ICE officers strive to protect every day. I think what has to change are the policies, and the people that are making these policies are making horrendous decisions like separating kids from their parents", Klobuchar said.

She was followed by Sen.

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. This is a frequent claim for the president, and Donald Trump has been criticized before for making claims that MS-13 had taken over entire towns and cities.
