Ben Dorfman, a protester who has been sleeping at the camp for about three or four days, said he was woken up at around 5:30 a.m.by a person who came inside his tent and said law enforcement had arrived.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the 28-year-old who stunned the country when she unseated the Democratic heavyweight Joe Crowley in a primary for New York's 14th congressional district earlier this week, has also campaigned on abolishing Ice. "I think you should separate the criminal justice from the immigration issues, and I think you should reimagine ICE under a new agency with a very different mission and take those two missions out".

Donald Trump, who has vilified law enforcement agencies, the intelligence community, the military, and veterans, leapt to ICE's defense via Twitter, and attacked Democrats for supporting the agency's abolishment. He wrote that he released many House Republicans "prior to the vote knowing we need more Republicans to win in Nov".

But, while it was unlikely to gain much traction on the right, Trump on Saturday backed ICE agents and said there was "zero chance" of ICE being abolished.

Vitiello "brings to ICE the vision and leadership needed to continue the exceptional work the agency is doing to accomplish its crucial national security and public safety missions", Nielsen said in a statement.

"Just trying to stop ICE, really, and abolish that whole system, peacefully though", Kelly Bower, another protestor, said.

"We went up to [Capitol] Hill several months ago and told them what the loopholes were about the Flores settlement agreement", he said, referring to a 1997 law about establishing government standards for immigrant detention. On Tuesday, upstart progressive candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 28-year-old middle class Latina from the Bronx, shocked the political world by unseating longtime Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley in a NY primary.

"How can Senator Gillibrand call for the abolition of ICE when she obviously has no idea what to replace it with?" It quickly grew into a mini protest village.

She likened the situation to what followed the white supremacist rallies last summer in Charlottesville, Virginia. "I love that issue if they're going to actually do that", he added.
