Anatomy of a Trump speech: Politics, policy - and immigration

Trump blamed Democrats for not being supportive of the country's Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, which helps patrol the border. He noted the agency's work to counter MS-13 gang members.

Pence singled out a handful of Democrats who've called for the agency's abolition, including Sens.

ICE may not be be to blame for separating families at u.s. borders, but the agency has always been dogged with claims of abuse.

The occupation was one of several in USA cities in recent days, including protests at ICE offices in Portland, New York, Detroit and San Francisco. "Instead of targeting a single agency in a broken system, let's focus on comprehensive immigration reform that ensures ICE and other agencies are focused on truly securing our borders, not terrorizing communities and spending more time imprisoning families than criminals".

Rasmussen also found that despite President Trump's efforts to toughen border enforcement, voters still think it's easier for illegal immigrants to get into the United States and stay there than in much of the rest of the world. Philadelphia police clashed with demonstrators who've been camping out demanding the ICE office at 8th and Cherry be shut down. Kamala Harris of California last week said the government "maybe" or "probably" should "start from scratch" on an immigration enforcement agency. The letter calls for splitting the agency in two - one part for homeland security, the other for deportations.

The vast majority - 88 percent - opposed separating illegal immigrant families while they are in the USA, and they blamed the Trump administration for the policy. Joe Manchin is seeking re-election. "We give them room to talk about better immigration policy", she said, comparing the circumstances to the civil rights movement, when Martin Luther King Jr., was viewed more favorably by white power brokers than more strident leaders like Malcolm X.

Sanders is said to be seriously considering another presidential run in 2020.

Put the numbers together, and a substantial majority said illegal border crossers, and the children they brought, should be returned to their home countries.

"They have a right to protest here, so we want to maintain their safety and we also want to maintain safety of public here", Deputy Commissioner Wilson said. Eight-four percent - a huge number comprised of 94 percent of Republicans, 76 percent of Democrats, and 83 percent of independents - said that cities should be required to notify immigration authorities. Senators Elizabeth Warren and Kirsten Gillibrand, his potential opponents for the Democratic nomination, have both come out in favor of abolishing ICE.

One way some cities, counties and states become "sanctuaries" is this: they have made a decision to only honor ICE HOLDS for risky criminals or to limit information about release dates.

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

Those 40 and over are more strongly opposed to abolishing ICE than younger voters are.

He says President Donald Trump "will never abolish ICE" and is calling for an end to the "spurious attacks".
