The agency is responsible for more than just immigration enforcement, also overseeing areas like cybercrime investigations and counterterrorism work.
But Klobuchar refused to endorse that approach, and instead insisted that the focus should be on immigration policy.
The vast majority - 88 percent - opposed separating illegal immigrant families while they are in the USA, and they blamed the Trump administration for the policy.
"They literally want to wipe out ICE and start with something else", she said.
Be smart: "Abolish ICE" is the flawless antithesis to Trump's "Build a wall": It represents an entire immigration ideology in one simple phrase that resonates with their base.
Sanders, who previously hedged on the issue when asked during a CNN interview, pointed out in his statement Tuesday that he had voted in 2002 against the creation of ICE and its parent agency, the Department of Homeland Security.

The Trump administration has flatly rejected that option, saying it would amount to "catch and release" - when illegal immigrants are processed and released into the community on the usually false hope that they will return for their deportation hearings. Thirty-six percent said they should be allowed to stay. What are they going to do after that? "They can not be ordered by the White House to basically ignore their mission and the law, and that's what's happening".
On Monday, the White House targeted Harris and Warren individually on Twitter, accusing Harris of "supporting the animals of MS-13'".
He concludes: "The entire Republican platform can now be reduced to three words: whatever Trump says".
