While the media has been breathlessly covering the protests, ICE has been quietly doing its job protecting our borders.
They have also been clearing the streets of those who break our immigration laws.
But now, the rioters who have filled blue cities with chaos just tried to stop ICE from doing its job.
Hundreds blocked ICE agents from conducting business. So, the federal officers took actions into their own hands:
Federal agents in Bend, Ore., clashed with hundreds of protesters late Wednesday night after an hourslong standoff sparked by the arrest of two men by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers, who said they were a “threat to the public.”
The protest spanned hours, as two unmarked ICE buses were blocked by protesters who apparently witnessed the arrests.
Bend, OR is apparently run by far-left radicals. The city’s police called the rioters “peaceful” protesters, a common line used by the media.
The local police refused to cooperate with ICE in their work apprehending criminals. When hundreds of activists tried to block an ICE bus, the police apparently did nothing to help.
It seems, to leftist local cops, it’s okay if protesters endanger themselves and others by standing in the middle of the road.
ICE arrested two men and was forced to intervene against the protesters.
Deschutes County District Attorney said he was “disgusted” by the government for trying to protect American citizens. He also said he was “proud” of dangerous rioters who continue to disrupt cities across the country.
Radical activists have co-opted whatever few peaceful protests went on in early Summer. Antifa, BLM, and other self-proclaimed Marxists have burned down businesses, homes, and churches.
They have vandalized historic monuments and assaulted police and bystanders.
Instead of stopping the widespread danger, Democratic leaders have called for the defunding of police.
All the while, the mainstream media celebrates radical, anti-American activists who endanger countless lives.
Numerous cities have already voted to defund their police departments. That quickly resulted in a surge of violent crime.
Recent surveys reveal the vast majority of Americans do not want police departments defunded or fewer cops on the streets.
- Protesters in Bend, OR blocked an ICE bus, forcing federal officers to arrest two men.
- Local police sided with rioters, refusing to deescalate the situation.
- Democrats leaders, including the county AG, said they were “disgusted” by our government.
