Many anti-Trump activists, who are driving the Twitter hashtag #abolishICE, have celebrated the moves by Gillibrand, Harris and others.

Fueling its sudden ascent have been a series of recent shocks to the system.

The rapid escalation was years in the making. Calls for its dissolution, once rare, are spreading.

The HSI special agents recommend spinning off their office to continue investigating national-security threats, child pornography and transnational crime, with deportations taking the focus at its sister agency, Enforcement and Removal Operations.

On Monday, Rep. Mark Pocan (D., Wis.) announced he plans to introduce legislation that would abolish the immigration enforcement agency. Pramila Jayapal of Washington state and Adriano Espaillat of NY on legislation to eliminate the agency.

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'd retire this summer.

"The culmination of all those things, going to the border and then when the president started talking about getting rid of due process, was it", he said.

"I have people already reaching out to us that want to sign on", he said.

But there is dissent now in the Democratic ranks.

"But what I think it allows us to do is talk about the facts", he said.

Trump tweeted from New Jersey that he didn't press GOP lawmakers to support the plans because it wouldn't have cleared the Senate. "Portland Police Bureau officers recognized the need to assist motorists in identifying alternative routes around road closures due to actions related to Occupy ICE PDX".

"That looks different in different places", she said. It quickly grew into a mini protest village.

The report added that the MS-13 gang actually originated in the United States in Los Angeles among Salvadoran immigrants, and only spread to Central America after some of the gang members were deported there.

She was followed by Sen.
