"Occupy ICE" Blockades ICE offices in Portland (Tent City sanctioned by Mayor)
Willamette Week ^ | June 23, 2018 | Aaron Mesh

The occupation of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement headquarters on the South Waterfront has over six days expanded from a scattering of chairs to a village of more than 80 tents, four portable toilets, six couches, a commissary and a medic's office.

The protest now closely resembles the Occupy Portland camps that seized two downtown parks in 2011. Once again, a Portland mayor has sanctioned the takeover—but this time, the target is a federal agency, and the goal is to directly impede its work.

Mayor Ted Wheeler has pledged to not intervene with Occupy ICE, saying he considers the work of federal immigration agents "un-American" and doesn't want Portland police to aid ICE's operations.

The blockade would now be difficult to dislodge anyhow.

"We've seen tremendous support," says Mary Ann Warner, an occupation organizer. "We're seeing so much food. I don't think anyone's going hungry."

The protest, blocking the front doors and driveway of ICE's building along Southwest Macadam Avenue, has forced the suspension of agency work since June 18. The Portland occupation, the first nationwide, is an attempt to disrupt President Donald Trump's "zero tolerance" policy that has treated refugees seeking asylum as criminals and separated small children from their parents.

ICE shut down its Portland office after protesters blocked the entrance.

For starters, arrest the mayor and local law enforcement leadership for supporting an attack against the federal government.

Yep. And the dumbasses have them sitting in the sunlight. Their antipsychotics will quickly lose all their potency—then look out.

The curious thing is none of these individuals have any kind of occupation or value to the local community. My guess is that they get a couple hundred dollars monthly from ‘dad’, and they live off that.

Feds ought to just pick them up and transport them to some holding camp in the middle of some Alaskan range.

I took my boys up to Portland for a summer camp. Total cost for a place to stay while I was up there was about 1500 bucks.

Dang! I coulda just camped out in a tent and saved a bunch money!

I don’t think Trump will let these Occupy things take over like in the Obama years

What would happen if they just disappeared and were never heard from again?

Where's Hoffa?
