Immigration enforcement is like liberating a town in combat: Donald Trump

Immigration enforcement is like liberating a town in combat: Donald Trump

"And it can't be allowed to continue".

"These are tough people", Trump said at an event in West Virginia on Tuesday. And I think he's, frankly, defining the conversation from the beginning in a way that doesn't benefit the American people, doesn't benefit the taxpayers and actually puts our national security at risk. "ICE is not welcome in this country".

Democrats who use the phrase say it doesn't mean they want no enforcement at the border at all.

The violent gang La Mara Salvatrucha, also known as MS-13, formed decades ago among Salvadoran immigrants who immigrated to Los Angeles primarily among Salvadorans.

Trump urged ICE agents to "not worry or lose your spirit", adding: "The radical left Dems want you out".

"We need to set up a commission that looks at the alternatives to ICE and really starts to understand how do we have these functions in a way that is accountable, transparent and humane", Jayapal told The Hill. "ICE also works to prevent the illegal export of US technology that could be used or repurposed to do harm". A rally was also held Saturday in Oakland at Lake Merritt.

Congressman Beto O'Rourke, the Democratic candidate challenging U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris, another possible 2020 contender, did not.

Calls to reform the agency have come from ICE employees. Joe Manchin is seeking re-election.

"Tell the people 'OUT, ' and they must leave, just as they would if they were standing on your front lawn", he continued in another tweet. Every time they've made us move or taken something, we've made it worse.

Melania Trump expected to visit west Phoenix shelter for migrant children Thursday
Southwest Key is a nonprofit that runs 26 immigrant shelter facilities for children across Texas, Arizona and California. The First Lady is touring immigration detention facilities in Arizona on Thursday.


Cristobal Alex, president of the Latino Victory Project, a political action group that backs pro-immigration candidates, rejected ICE as a "litmus test".

However, he said there could be concern around immigration enforcement more broadly.

Philadelphia's policy on undocumented immigrants only requires local officials to turn in those individuals to federal authorities if they present a criminal warrant or an order from a judge, not if ICE presents an administrative warrant.

"It's more important to replace Trump", he said.

"They (poll respondents) rejected family separation while narrowly favoring family detention", Penn said in an email exchange. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) have joined the movement to dismantle the agency altogether, according to CNN.

Perhaps no Trump policy has provoked more emotional reaction than the practice of separating illegal border crossers from the children they brought with them to the U.S. There's no need to recount the number of times critics have called the president a Nazi, or a fascist, or just plain cruel.

At the Working Families Party, Stamp said she sees the activists taking a position that "offers space" to other Democrats activists know won't agree with them.

The Republican president has sent mixed signals to Congress on immigration in the last month, telling legislators that he wants changes to the system and then directing them to wait until after the November election when the make-up of the Senate could be more favorable to Republicans.
