Activists Block ICE in Bend Oregon
SPUSA comrades and about 400 other anti-racist activists descended on the center of Bend Oregon. their goal was to block ICE (immigration and Customs enforcement) from taking two community members they had detained earlier. These two gentlemen were kidnapped off the street by ICE. After twelve hours, federal agents in riot gear used tear gas to make their way to the buses and take the detainees. Bend is a sanctuary city. ICE never produced a warrant, and the city cops allowed ICE to operate.
