- Federal law enforcement officers have begun removing protesters encamped outside a US Immigration and Customs Enforcement field office in Oregon's largest city, officials said Thursday morning, more than a week after the demonstrations forced the Portland facility to close temporarily. Agents with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security then formed a human barricade outside the building and faced off with the protesters, who had backed up onto city property.
Demonstrators shut down the facility on June 20th.
The so-called "Occupy ICE" protest began last week in Portland and spread to other US cities, spurred by news and images of Central American children being separated from their parents after crossing the USA southern border under President Donald Trump's "zero tolerance" stance on illegal immigration, organizers said.
