Since then, calls to abolish ICE have grown from a whisper to a shout.

Cracks in the dam became visible 10 days ago, when a group of demonstrators confronted Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen at a Mexican restaurant in Washington.

U.S. Attorney for Oregon Billy Williams said his office is committed to protecting freedom of speech and peaceful assembly: "However, when individuals break the law by blocking employees and the public from accessing a federal facility, federal law enforcement will respond to restore normal business operations".

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) continued on Friday, saying, "We should abolish ICE".

The rapid escalation was years in the making. "And after ICE is changed as an agency, there will be enforcement of immigration laws", said Jayapal. Calls for its dissolution, once rare, are spreading.

Ice agents are under fire nationwide.

Rep. Mark Pocan (D-WI) is now hammering out legislation to abolish the agency. Pramila Jayapal of Washington state and Adriano Espaillat of NY on legislation to eliminate the agency.

ICE, which is tasked with immigration enforcement away from US borders, has been "emboldened" to inhumanely round up illegal immigrants and deport them, critics say. And these are the ones - you get rid of ICE you're going to have a country that you're going to be afraid to walk out of your house. "You need something there".

Leading progressives, like Sens.

But while there should be a body to deal with immigration, he argued, "ICE is not that". On the evening of June 28, all three of the network's prime-time shows aired segments attacking the Abolish ICE movement, as did Fox & Friends the next morning.

The agency is under mounting pressure amid a string of recent developments that have put ICE in a less-than-flattering light.

This week, activists picked up even more momentum.

"I'm not leaving this fight", Homan said, adding he will be able to speak more freely after he leaves office.

Law enforcement says they moved in around 5:30 a.m. and gave several warnings before they swept the area. "I think "Abolish ICE" is where it is today because of her leadership".

Protests have already begun to grow in size and frequency.

"You know ICE, these are the guys that go in and take MS-13, and they take them out".

Philadelphia City Council member Helen Gym recorded and tweeted out video of the scenes.

She was followed by Sen. At least one person appeared to be arrested as protesters lined up against the officers and yelled at them. "They're talking about everyone".
