Democrats seeking their party's 2020 presidential nomination seem to be backing away from the #AbolishICE movement as a new poll shows the call to dismantle the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency has failed to catch on with voters.
Their move toward more centrist immigration positions seems somewhat isolating for Democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who has renewed her call to abolish the immigration agency.
Last year, many prominent Democrats -- including Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Kirsten Gillibrand and Bernie Sanders, who are all now running for president -- all boldly declared their support for doing away with the agency that was linked to the Trump administration's "zero-tolerance" policy on immigration, which has since been rescinded.
But with the 2020 primaries looming closer, Dems making a White House run are seeking out safer positions.
