Efforts to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) escalated on Thursday with a protest against Trump in San Francisco -- that also protested local Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi for not standing up to the administration.
"Hundreds of demonstrators gathered in San Francisco Friday asking the most powerful politician in the Bay Area, and one of the most powerful leaders in U.S. government Speaker Nancy Pelosi, to use every lever she can to put a stop to ICE raids and cut off funding for controversial detention centers," NBC Bay Area reported Thursday.
"Hey hey, ho ho, racist ICE has got to go," protesters chanted.
"We’re here to stand up to Nancy Pelosi, because we worked to get her into that seat, and we expect her to represent us, and not give away the $4.6 billion that she gave away to keep these camps funded," said Carrie Sterns from Never Again.
Here are some of the scenes from the protest:
