Protest Encampment Cleared at ICE Building in Portland

She told news networks about the morning's ordeal claiming she was initially locked out of the office after having been pushed to the ground by the ICE officer

This week, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 28-year-old Democratic Socialist, won a primary against 10-term Representative Joe Crowley while campaigning on the abolish ICE movement.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the 28-year-old NY progressive who pulled off a stunning upset primary victory over high-ranking Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.) on Tuesday, has made ending ICE part of her platform.

Members of the Federal Protective Service lined up outside 4310 Southwest Macadam Avenue to initiate the reopening of the ICE building, which has faced closures after a camp of demonstrators protesting separations of families at the southern border first surrounded the site on Sunday June 17.

The activists rallying under the moniker Occupy ICE PDX - PDX is Portland's airport code - want to abolish ICE and end the Trump administration's zero-tolerance immigration policy. 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".

Protesters attempted to create a human chain in front of the federal facility's driveway, but eventually cleared the way to cooperate with law enforcement.

Trump blasts Harley-Davidson’s decision to shift production overseas
The EU targeted the United States vehicles as part of its rebuttal to Trump's tariffs on imported aluminum and steel. Harley's departure is particularly embarrassing for Trump since the president has repeatedly praised the company .

In an interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo Thursday, Gillibrand said that the agency should be "reimagined" with a "very different mission".

ICE had no official comment, but Buch said the idea would be similar to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and DEA under the U.S. Justice Department, with each having different leadership and missions. "And we need to build into any new structure the ability for ICE as an agency or whatever the new agency is, to be accountable back to congress".

It's unclear in what fever dream Trump witnessed ICE's liberation of town after town from the clutches of MS-13, but ICE's competency is not in dispute: they have none. New York Mayor Bill DeBlasio (D) said that the agency has "become a punitive, negative tool for division", and that its existence is "no longer acceptable".

As the Texas Observer reported, the Department of Homeland Security "shifted HSI funds to other parts of ICE to cover the costs of civil immigration enforcement, including $34.5 million in 2016". The lawyer sustained a broken foot and several cuts.
