Fires set outside ICE headquarters; no arrests made

Protests

PORTLAND, Ore (KOIN) — A group set fires and tagged the outside of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement building Saturday night, according to police reports.

Videos posted on Twitter show federal officers using what appears to be crowd control munitions to push the group back.

When PPB officers arrived, they found there were at least two fires, including one that appeared to be against the building, Portland Police officers reported. PPB later assisted Portland Fire & Rescue in snuffing out the fires.

Social media posts indicate the demonstration is in response to immigration policy under the Biden administration. The building has been a routine target for protests since last summer.
