Nine people were arrested Thursday morning after federal officers in riot gear moved in to clear the entrance to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement holding facility in Southwest Portland.
In a series of tweets, Trump praised the agency as "one of the smartest, toughest and most spirited law enforcement groups of men and women that I have ever seen".
"We came to the United States seeking help, and we never imagined that this could happen". He will lead ICE as the Trump administration deals with scrutiny over the separation of immigrant children from their relatives at the US southern border. Kirsten Gillibrand and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio - echoed the "abolish ICE" calls this week.
U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan claims the agency's practices under Republican President Donald Trump's administration have indelibly tarnished its reputation.
Defending the work that they did and indicating that they provided a valuable and necessary service in protecting the American people from the "worst criminal elements", President Trump laid out a number of tweets indicating that there was absolutely no way that abolishment of ICE would take place under his administration.

Though other Democrats, including party leaders in the Senate and House, have not gone that far in their criticism, the debate over ICE has thrust an agency with 20,000 employees into the public spotlight after years of whiplash over the scope of its central mission since its founding in 2003.
His departure comes at a tricky time for ICE, which is now facing calls from immigrant-rights activists and some congressional Democrats that it be disbanded.
"I'm not leaving this fight", he said, adding that as a civilian he'll be able to say a lot more than he can now.
Activists and progressive leaders are pressing on, becoming more aggressive in their push to abolish the agency, an effort many in the movement view as both a way to open up the debate over decades of bipartisan US immigration policy and, crucially, win elections.
The issue is getting traction after this week's surprise upset by 28-year-old Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who made "Abolish ICE" a central tenet of her campaign against Rep. Joe Crowley, who had been the king of Queens. She didn't shy away from saying it.
Her comments follow similar sentiments expressed by Sen. From conducting raids at garden centers and meatpacking plants, to breaking up families at churches and schools, ICE is tearing apart families and ripping at the moral fabric of our nation.

He has since released a new line of mugs in revenge, which feature Elon Musk and the words 'Tesla stole my unicorn'. The Tesla CEO didn't credit the image, however, leading many outlets to assume Musk drew the cartoon himself .
And the Trump White House , while disorganized in other areas, made its relationship with the religious right a priority. While Kennedy was a conservative, he proved to be a somewhat unpredictable "swing" vote over his long career.
The worst fears - and highest hopes - excited by the prospect of a new Supreme Court justice may well be overblown. Trump said he would speak with one or two candidates, and plans to announce his selection on Monday, July 9.

Hardiman and Thapar were among the group interviewed by Trump before he selected Neil Gorsuch for a vacancy past year . Wade is very much in question", said David Cole, national legal director for the American Civil Liberties Union.
