Protest Encampment Cleared at ICE Building in Portland

Protest Encampment Cleared at ICE Building in Portland

Despite the removal of the tents and a judge's ruling that families must be reunited, protesters say they'll continue their action in front of the building until Saturday, when nationwide protests against President Donald Trump's immigration policies are scheduled to take place. "Zero chance, It will never happen!"

Members of the Federal Protective Service lined up outside 4310 Southwest Macadam Avenue to initiate the reopening of the ICE building, which has faced closures after a camp of demonstrators protesting separations of families at the southern border first surrounded the site on Sunday June 17.

Homan was asked about the recent rhetoric from three New York Democrats: actress and gubernatorial hopeful Cynthia Nixon, Sen.

On Monday, Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Wis., said he would introduce legislation to eliminate the agency. Multiple candidates for prominent elected positions have endorsed the movement, including New York congressional nominee Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a Democratic Socialist who ran on the issue leading up to her upset primary win over Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY).

Once relegated to a fringe philosophy on the far-left of the Democratic Party base, suggestions to outright dismantle ICE entirely and to immediately press for the impeachment of President Donald Trump have started to enter the mainstream leftist lexicon as American political polarization deepens.

The White House has not commented on Vitiello or a permanent replacement.

Rep. Pramila Jayapal arrested at immigration policy protest in Washington D.C.
The protesters, mostly women dressed in white, chanted , "Say it loud, say it clear, immigrants are welcome here". Capitol Police arrested almost 600 people, who engaged in protests with several Democrat lawmakers.

Last week, a group of 19 special agents who oversee ICE's Homeland Security Investigations unit sent a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, requesting she spin HSI off from ICE and establish "two separate and independent agencies".

"Even the cops don't like us anymore, because they're listening to the news also", said an agent who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

"I'm a mom, and I think everyone I know that I've talked to about this issue has had a very visceral reaction", Sharaf said.

Homeland security investigators want out of ICE. Mr. Trump signed an executive order to end those separations, but many children still remain apart from their parents. We should create something better, something different.It is broken.

He has been a fierce advocate for ICE's deportation officers and a vociferous opponent of sanctuary cities, saying they put his officers in danger and risked community safety.

The activists pushing for ICE abolition, meanwhile, said they aren't anxious about potential blowback or any difficulties for Democrats facing more conservative voters, including those potentially swayed by Trump's repeated charges that Democrats favor "open borders".
