The so-called “Occupy Movement” that saw thousands of protesters camping for months on sidewalks in major cities across the country has re-emerged.

Instead of focusing on income inequality and wealth redistribution, the second generation of “Occupy” is rallying around the idea of dismantling the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Agency.

The agency has faced criticism for years from devoted immigration activists, but now the pressure to abandon current immigration policy has become more widespread.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, more than 700 marches and rallies took place throughout the nation on Saturday.

“Thousands of people attended the march from Dolores Park to Civic Center in San Francisco, which was led by folk singer Joan Baez,” the Chronicle said.

Protesters have set up tents in places like Portland (OR), Louisville (KY), Los Angeles (CA), and elsewhere.

In June, WikiLeaks published the identities and information of more than 9,000 supposed current and former ICE employees, according to the LA Times.
