Hundreds of protests are planned across the country on Saturday to call for the reunification of immigrant families separated at the U.S. -Mexico border as part of the Trump administration's "zero-tolerance" border policy.

Nielsen said that under "his exceptional leadership, the men and women of ICE have made significant progress in restoring the rule of law to our immigration system and countering criminals such as human smugglers and those attempting to exploit children". "You abolish ICE now, you still have the same President with the same failed policies, whatever you replace it with is just still (going to) reflect what this President wants to do".
Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Elizabeth Warren of MA, have stopped short of calling for ICE to be terminated outright and the Congressional Hispanic Caucus has circulated talking points advising caution - arguing in a memo obtained by CNN that "abolishing ICE without changing President Trump's disastrous immigration policy will not solve the problem".
