Meanwhile, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's stance that ICE should be abolished has gained prominence since her longshot victory in Tuesday's Democratic congressional primary over U.S. Rep. Joe Crowley in NY.

"She had an actual campaign strategy that revolved around ICE, and it was very smart, because (incumbent Rep. Joe) Crowley was weak on immigration and she knew that he would never be able to get where he needed to be to win that primary", McElwee said. He added that the "radical left Dems" would try to abolish all police if ICE was abolished.

Indeed, the would-be presidential candidates haven't yet detailed what they propose in ICE's place.

Though many are seasoned anti-Trump demonstrators, others are new to immigration activism, including parents who say they feel compelled to show up after heart-wrenching accounts of children forcibly taken from their families as they crossed the border illegally.
"Some of these unsafe individuals had been released to the streets instead of being turned over to ICE on our detainers, which compromises the safety of the homeland that ICE officers strive to protect every day".
