ICE Names New Acting Director Amid Immigration Turmoil

Protesters flooded more than 700 marches, from immigrant-friendly cities like NY and Los Angeles to conservative Appalachia and Wyoming.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) became the first sitting senator to say the US should "get rid of" ICE: "start over".

"ICE's time has come and gone", DeBlasio told WNYC's Brian Lehrer in an interview Friday morning. So there's nothing in abolishing ICE that would mean we'd then have open borders. "We wish Tom and his family all the best and know they will remain part of the DHS family".

Tens of thousands of protesters demonstrated Saturday across the United States against his "zero tolerance" policy calling for the apprehension of anyone illegally crossing the Mexican border into the United States and for the immediate reunification of more than 2,000 immigrant children separated from their parents when they entered the United States, who the government is holding in shelters.

Homan also gave President Donald Trump accolades for being tougher on immigration and more diligent to protect USA citizens than half a dozen presidents he has served under.

"The job they have is so unsafe", he said, warning that without ICE, people would be "afraid" to even leave their houses. But Williams added that ICE, "instead of becoming something that keeps terrorists and bad guys and drug dealers out, has become like an enforcement force, if you will, that goes and raids homes, raids jobs, makes people uncomfortable in their own land".




Trump on Saturday claimed he has "watched ICE liberate towns from the grasp of MS-13".

Gas prices, which have soared in recent weeks, spiked again Tuesday on news that the State Department is pressuring US allies to cut off all oil imports from Iran - a policy that would sharply restrict global supplies. "Organizations have called for families to be reunited and ICE to be abolished".

Trump said he "released many" House Republicans so they could vote against the immigration bill last week. "We even had a credible potential candidate for president in 2020 suggest we get rid of ICE, the border enforcement agency", said Mitch McConnell.

"Right before ICE was established - which is a new agency, It's only been established in the last many years - there was enforcement of immigration laws. Whatever you replace it with is just going to still reflect what this president wants to do", Duckworth explained.

Vitiello is a 30-year veteran of law enforcement and was tapped to lead ICE after President Donald Trump's pick, Thomas Homan, took himself out of the running and said he would retire this summer.
