Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren called for the abolition of ICE during a rally on Saturday morning.
“The president’s deeply immoral actions have made it obvious we need to rebuild our immigration system from top to bottom starting by replacing ICE with something that reflects our morality and that works,” Warren said, according to The Hill.
“President Trump seems to think that the only way to have immigration rule is to rip parents from their family, is to treat rape victims and refugees like terrorists, and to put children in cages,” she continued. “And this is not the way to run our country.”
At the #FamiliesBelongTogether march tomorrow, we’ll show @realDonaldTrump that the real power is with the people. I’ll be rallying in Boston. Will you join us? #TogetherAndFree pic.twitter.com/k1r0jPYRnS

Warren also made a trip to the detention centers along the southern border earlier this month.
She joins a litany of other Democratic Congress members and hopefuls in calling for an end to ICE.
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand told CNN’s Chris Cuomo that she thought it was time to end the agency. (RELATED: KIRSTEN GILLIBRAND: FIRST SENATOR TO CALL FOR ICE TO BE ABOLISHED)
