An activist who carries the hashtag “Abolish Borders” on her Twitter profile stated she had met with the appearing chief of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on Tuesday.
“Yesterday I met with ICE’s new Chief of Staff [Michael Lumpkin] to make clear our demands for a world without ICE detention and a future where all people are able to live freely with the support of their community and loved ones, not behind bars as they navigate their immigration cases,” wrote Setareh Ghandehari, advocacy director of Detention Watch Network.
According to its web site, Detention Watch Network describes itself as a “national coalition building power through collective advocacy, grassroots organizing, and strategic communications to abolish immigration detention in the United States.”

She accused the president of reneging on his guarantees for a “humane immigration system.”
