President Donald Trump accused Democrats of "demeaning" border agents as he once again pushed back against critics who called for abolishing ICE following his administration's child separation policy.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the insurgent Democratic Socialist who won a stunning primary upset in NY last week, ran on this issue.

Potential 2020 presidential hopefuls are joining the bandwagon. Sen.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) became the first sitting senator to say the US should "get rid of" ICE: "start over". Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) have joined the movement to dismantle the agency altogether, according to CNN. In recent weeks, more politicians have endorsed a frequent rally change to "Abolish ICE".

But replace it with what?

Many protesters held signs with the slogan at marches across the country this the weekend, and several leading Democrats echoed the grassroots catchphrase.

Just ask the Republicans.

"I don't know", Cicilline acknowledged. Republicans saw those departments as symbols of everything that had gone awry in a sprawling, increasingly intrusive federal government. "As long has we have Trump he's the one in charge of their policies".

Voters, meanwhile, were more split on whether they believe Trump's immigration policies are based on a genuine interest in controlling the country's borders or racism. "In fact, ICE doesn't operate at the borders".

Lastly, they are calling for the City of Philadelphia to have no cooperation policy with ICE. Detention and deportation, which grew sharply under President Barack Obama, have also become more common since ICE's creation.

It's not as if ICE is some longstanding agency that should be considered untouchable.

Mr. Trump ignited the debate with his zero-tolerance policy at the border, announced by the Justice Department in May, which involved jailing most border jumpers.

On the issue of separations, Penn began with a threshold question: "Do you think that people who make it across our border illegally should be allowed to stay in the country or sent home?" But Trump's claim that Democrats want "open borders", like so much of what Trump says, is a lie meant to mislead the American people.

This is the fight that Trump wants to have, over security and law enforcement, rather than massive detention centers and frantic parents who can not find their children.

Locally, protesters are calling on Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney, who has been an outspoken advocate for immigrant rights, to end the city's Preliminary Arraignment Reporting System (PARS) data sharing contract with ICE.
