This week, Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Wis., said he plans to introduce legislation to eliminate the agency. DeBlasio made light of Ocasio-Cortez's primary victory when talking about ICE in his interview with Lehrer. The back of her jacket said, "I really don't care, do U?" and it became a rallying cry for protesters Saturday. After a brief update on the June 28 mass shooting at an Annapolis, MD, newspaper, Tucker Carlson - who uses his platform to promote white nationalism - opened his show by denouncing #AbolishICE as an "ideological revolution on the left" and fearmongering about the criminals and drugs that he claimed would flood the country without ICE.

"There are people who have all kinds of other grievances or gripes with the Trump administration and they're quite happy to use this one as the most productive and salient for the moment", he said.
Trump seems to relish the prospect of Democrats making the abolishment of ICE a campaign issue.
"If we can fix the Flores settlement agreement, we can keep the families together in a family facility until they see the judge, but they failed to fix it".
"That looks different in different places", she said. The ICE blockade subsequently grew into a tent city with "more than 80 tents, four portable toilets, six couches, a commissary and a medic's office".
Former Vice President Joe Biden voted as a senator from DE for the 2002 law, the Homeland Security Act, that paved the way for ICE to replace the Immigration and Naturalization Service.
