New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand becomes the first sitting US senator to publicly call for the elimination of Immigration and Customs Enforcement; reaction and analysis on 'The Five'.

It was not immediately clear what the president was referring to in saying the agency had "liberated" entire towns.

Two of Trump's tweets were about ICE.

Democrats have responded to the nationwide outcry over young immigrant children being separated from their parents to bring more attention to the #AbolishICE movement that calls for the agency to be disbanded entirely.

The question was posed to de Blasio following the Democratic primary results in New York's heavily-Democratic 14th Congressional District, which saw an upset victory from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) endorsed abolishing ICE, and Sen.




Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the 28-year-old NY progressive who pulled off a stunning upset primary victory over high-ranking Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.) on Tuesday, has made ending ICE part of her platform.

Why do Dems want to abolish ICE?

"Next it will be all police".

In a following tweet, he says abolition will "never happen!"

The president's forceful defense of the agency comes as immigration advocates are expected to hold large rallies across the country Saturday over the family separation controversy.

The call from ICE agents drew attention from Trump critics on social media, who said it put on clear display the fact that the president's immigration policies have centered on persecuting immigrants, contrary to his claims that ICE is focused on protecting USA national security.

The agents work in ICE's Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) unit, which focuses on crimes including drug trafficking, human smuggling, and child pornography. "We should abolish ICE".
