Arrests made as groups rally in Hartford to abolish ICE, detention centers

Arrests made as groups rally in Hartford to abolish ICE, detention centers

Also on Sunday, Connecticut Democratic Sen.

Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren of MA, who could run against Trump in two years, said over the weekend, "The president's deeply immoral actions have made it obvious we need to rebuild our immigration system from top to bottom starting by replacing ICE with something that reflects our morality and that works". The agents reportedly said that ICE is supposed track down drug cartel leaders, child pornographers and human traffickers; but instead, the letter said, agents are spending time and resources going after undocumented immigrants, and the agency is becoming a "political pawn".

"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", she said on "This Week". Such rhetoric could prove unhelpful to the 10 Democratic senators seeking re-election this fall in states Trump carried in 2016, where conservative views on immigration prevail.

"This is ugly and this is wrong and this is not the way to run our country", she said.

This is the fight that Trump wants to have, over security and law enforcement, rather than massive detention centers and frantic parents who can not find their children.

So when you see Ocasio-Cortez, Warren, Durbin, Waters and whatever other Democrat socialist out there calling for the abolishment of ICE, realize that while their followers are being tricked into marching for something they do not understand, the Democrats know exactly why they're doing it - even if it won't really help them in November.

Still, not every immigrant advocacy group takes the same view.

There are fair criticisms that ICE has become unwieldy and that its reputation sometimes interferes with its ability to do its job. And that's a problem, many say.

When CNN's Van Jones asked James Schwab, a former spokesman for ICE's San Francisco division, if he believes the agency should be abolished or shut down, Schwab said, "It just doesn't make sense to me".

In April, the Intercept obtained 1,224 complaints of sexual and physical abuse in immigration detention centers. Thirty-six percent said they should be allowed to stay. According to their website, they are a "a network of volunteer lawyers and community organizers who stand ready to respond to immigration raids and increased enforcement affecting Los Angeles County and beyond".
