Protesters gathered outside U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in New York City to protest the agency's tactics and the Trump administration's “zero tolerance” policy toward illegal border crossings.

Fox News' Todd Piro spoke to some of the Occupy ICE demonstrators, who were blocking the loading dock of ICE headquarters in New York City.

Protesters said they want to prevent ICE from doing its job, and some called for the federal agency to be dismantled altogether.

"I'm here because I think that separating parents from their children and deporting people who are just living their lives is wrong," one man said.

Several people said they want the U.S. to adopt an open borders policy, with one woman declaring, "No borders, no nations."

When demonstrators realized that Piro was a Fox News correspondent, however, they refused to speak with him any further.

The Washington Post reported that the Occupy ICE movement began in Portland, Oregon, and the success there has led to it spreading to other cities.

In addition to the demonstrations in Portland and New York City, protesters have gathered at ICE facilities in Detroit and Los Angeles, according to the Post.
