New York City: Tens of Thousands Protest President Trump's Immigration Policies

"Because they're going to get beaten so badly", Trump said, according to Fox News. "I have literally never seen Americans show up for immigrants like this", said Jess Morales Rocketto, political director at the National Domestic Workers Alliance, which represents nannies, housekeepers and caregivers, many of whom are immigrants. The heartless actions of this abused agency do not represent the values of our nation and the USA must develop a more humane immigration system, one that treats every person with dignity and respect.

But a Trump tweet this morning showed how easy the issue will be to demagogue: "To the great and courageous men and women of ICE, do not worry or lose your spirit". Two potential Democratic presidential candidates - New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand - have jumped on board the anti-ICE bandwagon, joining a growing list of far-left Democrats.

Nielsen said that under "his exceptional leadership, the men and women of ICE have made significant progress in restoring the rule of law to our immigration system and countering criminals such as human smugglers and those attempting to exploit children".

Momentum has been steadily building to do away with ICE, which was created in 2003, following this week's upset victory of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who successfully unseated a senior Democrat in the House of Representatives for the party's nomination. "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".

"Instead of being insulted with politically-motivated attacks, the men and women of ICE should be praised for risking life and limb every day in the name of national security and public safety", Johnson said.

Her comments follow similar sentiments expressed by Sen.

"To the great and fearless men and women of ICE, do not worry or lose your spirit." he wrote in a follow-up tweet. "Zero chance, It will never happen!"


Trump seems to relish the prospect of Democrats making the abolishment of ICE a campaign issue.

Immigrant advocacy groups say they're thrilled - and surprised - to see the issue gaining traction among those not tied to immigration. "I love that issue if they're going to actually do that". Before the border separation crisis, Harris had introduced legislation that would curb the expansion of immigration detention centers.

Whatever the details, the focus on ICE could cause problems for some potential candidates with more conservative records on immigration.

Many Republicans have been urging Democrats to be completely honest and to run on an "open borders" platform for years.

A few other more progressive Democratic candidates have adopted the anti-ICE messaging, including Cynthia Nixon, running for NY governor, and Matt Haggman, a running for Florida's 27th congressional district.

"We give them room to talk about better immigration policy", she said, comparing the circumstances to the civil rights movement, when Martin Luther King Jr., was viewed more favorably by white power brokers than more strident leaders like Malcolm X.
