Democratic congressional candidates Kim Schrier, Jason Rittereiser and Shannon Hader have not embraced calls by some in their party to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement, better known as ICE.
The White House tweeted at Democratic Sens.
ICE may not be be to blame for separating families at United States borders, but the agency has always been dogged with claims of abuse. And the Bay Area has been one of the many Ground Zeros for the anti-ICE movement, with many similar movements in New York, Philadelphia, Cleveland and Florida. On the other hand, 55 percent said illegal immigrant families should be held in custody "until a judge reviews their case" - essentially the new Trump family detention policy.
Hader, a former division director at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, who returned to her hometown of Auburn to run for Congress, said ICE is on "the wrong track, with the wrong focus", but said she's not sure it should be done away with. Kamala Harris of California last week said the government "maybe" or "probably" should "start from scratch" on an immigration enforcement agency.
"Although ICE is clearly in need of significant reform, abolishing the agency charged with executing the administration's misguided policies won't change the policies".
Sanders, who previously hedged on the issue when asked during a CNN interview, pointed out in his statement Tuesday that he had voted in 2002 against the creation of ICE and its parent agency, the Department of Homeland Security.
The policy applies to families separated before Trump issued a June 20 order under considerable outside pressure to stop the policy of separating parents from children. Joe Manchin is seeking re-election. "They have strayed so far from the interests of the American people and the interests of humanity", she continued. But the policy resulted in an estimated 2,400 children being separated from the adults who illegally brought them into the country.

Those 40 and over are more strongly opposed to abolishing ICE than younger voters are.
"It's more important to replace Trump", he said.
"Abolishing ICE would mean open borders because it would eliminate the agency responsible for removing people who enter or remain in our country illegally, including drug dealers; gang members; and child molesters, rapists, and other sex offenders", the release said.
