  • Kirsten Gillibrand becomes first senator to call for abolishing ICE

Though many who show up will be seasoned anti-Trump demonstrators, others will be new to immigration activism, including parents who say they feel compelled to show up after heart-wrenching accounts of children forcibly taken from their families as they crossed the border illegally.

A tear down of the camp, which includes wooden pallets and tents, started shortly after by officers.

"Everyone knows this has been a possibility from day one", protester Lilith Sinclair, a protester, said. She said one of those songs was Metallica's "Enter Sandman". And eight people were arrested outside an ICE building in Portland, Ore., that has been closed because of a round-the-clock demonstration.

This week, activists picked up even more momentum. "Then, at 5:30 a.m., they came out".

Officers moved in on the encampment of Occupy ICE PDX demonstrators at about 5:30 a.m. PT, the U.S. attorney's office in OR said. "Some of them did", Sperling said.




"And these are the ones - you get rid of ICE, you're going to have a country that you're going to be afraid to walk out of your house".

Singer John Legend serenaded the crowd and Democratic politicians who have clashed with Trump had strong words for the president, including U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters who called for his impeachment. "Some of the folks who were in there, they had dinner and they were playing some music", Sperling said.

His departure comes at a tricky time for ICE, which is now facing calls from immigrant-rights activists and some congressional Democrats that it be disbanded. Immigration enforcement is important, both sides agree on that. Some ICE officers wore black scarves over their faces.

TAMEEM FRUCTER: ICE is enacting this unacceptable violence on families, on children, on human beings.

Laura Ingraham complained that "Occupy ICE protesters want to, again, make it impossible for our immigration investigators to do their jobs". Protesters remained in the area, with some approaching the officers intermittently, talking with them or appearing to record them with cell phone cameras. Danialle James, 32, was still in her pajamas as she yelled toward the line of officers in riot gear. The back of her jacket said, "I really don't care, do U?" and it became a rallying cry for protesters Saturday. On Tuesday, U.S. House candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez delivered a stunning Democratic primary upset in NY after campaigning on abolishing the agency, which was formed in 2003 as part of a post-9/11 federal overhaul that created the Department of Homeland Security.
