This abolish ICE stuff is just so silly and such an obvious political sop.

There will always be a federal LEA that enforces immigration. So you're going to do what? Change the name? Fire everyone and then rehire everyone to a new agency that will be identical to ICE?
or maybe roll all ICE agents into the FBI? Or ATF? DEA? Then you still have the number of agents running around enforcing the exact same laws that ICE did.

Or... if "abolish ICE" is just a foil to strip away border security, just say that. "We want open borders."
of course then you, a committed progressive who favors centralized government power, have essentially delegated authority for border enforcement to Sheriff Joe and the boys.
all of the wires in this diagram head back to the same logical conclusion. Border integrity is a function of national sovereignty, and as such is a federal responsibility. Enforcement authorities derive from US code. So if you want change, shun political theater and fix the law.
