The separation of more than 2,000 children from their parents and guardians at the U.S. -Mexico border has sparked worldwide outrage and growing calls in the United States for the abolition of the immigration agency on the front lines of the dispute.

On Saturday, protesters are set to march in over 700 cities, including Washington, DC, to demonstrate against family separations and Attorney General Jeff Sessions' "zero tolerance" policy that sparked the crackdown.

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. "Because they're going to get beaten so badly", he said in an interview with Fox News Channel's "Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo", according to an excerpt released Saturday. On Tuesday, U.S. House candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez delivered a stunning Democratic primary upset in NY after campaigning on abolishing the agency, which was formed in 2003 as part of a post-9/11 federal overhaul that created the Department of Homeland Security.

"I think that Ms. Ocasio-Cortez is right", de Blasio said.

They called for an end to the Trump administration policy that resulted in separating migrant families at the border and, as the viral protest heated up, began to chant: "Abolish ICE!"

Earlier this week, the Texas Observer reported that 19 senior ICE investigators asked DHS Secretary Kristjen Nielsen to spin the Homeland Security Investigations division out of ICE.

"I don't think ICE today is working as intended", Gillibrand said on CNN Thursday evening. "I know people aren't sympathetic to deportation officers, but they have a rough time with this too and I think more so under this administration".

Democratic leaders have also refrained from calling for the outright elimination of ICE, instead focusing on reforming the agency.

A week ago, Trump signed an order ending the separation of families, but some 2,000 children have yet to be reunited with family members, and immigration lawyers say the process of doing so will be long and chaotic.

Several progressive Democratic candidates have made the abolishment of ICE a central platform of their campaigns, and a handful of incumbent Democrats have taken up the mantle as well.

ICE spokeswoman Liz Johnson condemned calls to abolish the agency as "dangerously misguided".

"To the great and courageous men and women of ICE, do not worry or lose your spirit." he wrote in a follow-up tweet.

During my trip to the southern border, it was clear that ICE, and its actions of hunting down and tearing apart families, has wreaked havoc on far too many people.

Ocasio's upset of Crowley, the fourth-ranking House Democrat, raised the question over whether her more liberal positions were indicative of a party shifting further to the left.

An ICE spokesman could not be reached for comment on this story, but during a stop in North Dakota this week, Trump warned that if ICE were eliminated, the country would be "overrun with the worst criminal elements you have ever seen". So brave!' Trump tweeted.

Why do Dems want to abolish ICE?

Next it will be all police.

In a following tweet, he says abolition will "never happen!"
