MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Dozens hit the streets this morning to protest ICE, The Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency.

They say it's because of the agency's handling of immigrants seeking asylum at the southern border.

Thursday morning's rally and march was led by members of the Jewish community in Milwaukee.

The movement is called, "Never Again" and one of their major goals is abolishing ICE.

Dozens of marchers gathered in Cathedral Square this morning and chanted and sang songs.

Then they marched to the U.S. Citizens and Immigration Services office downtown to demand abolishing ICE.

They held signs demanding the immigration camps on the southern border be shut down.

One organizer says it has gone too far and that's why they were out there marching Thursday morning.

"We believe it has hit a boiling point in this country and history shares from our people that we have been persecuted, that we have been put into camps. We have to step up and say never again on our watch and not on our soil, organizer Sami Stein Avner said. 

There are rallies and marches like this happening all across the country under this "Never Again" movement.
