9 arrests as federal police clear entrance to Portland ICE building

When Martinez tried to enter she claims she was pushed back by an ICE agent and not allowed

President Trump on Saturday defended Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in the face of calls by some Democrats to abolish the agency, saying the agents are "doing a fantastic job" and that scrapping the agency "will never happen".

In a couple of weekend tweets, Trump praised ICE as "one of the smartest, toughest and most spirited law enforcement groups" and said there's "Zero chance" that the border security agency will be abolished.

Across the nation, ICE has never seemed more visible as anger continues over the separation of families under the Trump administration's "zero-tolerance" policy.

"Yes Mr Mayor, #AbolishICE, but ALSO abolish your unsafe effort to deny legal representation to many immigrants across NY", tweeted Councilman Carlos Menchaca.

But the actor has surely made a remarkable comeback since Sanju has become Ranbir Kapoor's highest opening day grosser. This particular scene will make a bad impression about the jails and jails authorities of the Indians", it read.

Authorities detained nine people Thursday while trying to reopen a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement building in Portland, Oregon, that had been closed because of a round-the-clock demonstration. Kirsten Gillibrand of NY, take aim at the agency. 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'm here because I'm disgusted, outraged, and frightened by our government", Lisa Zieger, a 66-year-old Newark resident, said. One of the reasons the investigators want to leave ICE is because the political nature of immigration enforcement is making it harder for them to get their work done.

They all think ICE should be disbanded and its work handled by a different, more capable agency. "Portland Police Bureau officers recognized the need to assist motorists in identifying alternative routes around road closures due to actions related to Occupy ICE PDX", said the Portland Police Bureau on its presence around the ICE building.

The office was established only 15 years ago, a move meant to help "protect national security and strengthen public safety", in response to the September 11, 2001 attacks, as the agency's website says.

Bubba Watson shoots 63 to rally for 3rd Travelers title
ROGERS, Ark. - Nasa Hataoka and Minjee Lee each shot a 6-under 65 to share the second-round lead in the NW Arkansas Championship. It was a bit of a squirrelly round, figuratively and literally, for Rory McIlroy.

TAMEEM FRUCTER: ICE is enacting this unacceptable violence on families, on children, on human beings. The debate over the agency's future follows the widespread outcry in recent weeks after the Trump administration separated more than 2,000 migrant children from their parents. Detroit protesters say they had some success in hampering ICE operations when they blocked some employees from entering the building Monday morning.

When asked how she would replace ICE, she responded bluntly, "Nothing". Cortez was among the more vocal candidates calling for ICE to be shut down.

Ocasio-Cortez has made abolishing ICE a core campaign promise.

ROSE: ICE was created along with the Department of Homeland Security just 15 years ago.
