Protesters rally outside ICE building, clash with federal officers

Protests

Crowd appeared to mostly dwindle by 12:30 a.m.

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Protesters rallied outside of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement building in south Portland late Tuesday night.

Although the gathering was relatively small in size compared to larger protests that have taken place in Portland, the night did escalate when federal officers exited the ICE facility. In video posted to social media, federal agents can be seen coming out of the building, grabbing a person holding a sign and throw them to the ground. They then appear to handcuff that person and take them into custody.

There’s no word on what led up to the incident — but KOIN 6 News has reached out to the Department of Homeland Security for comment. No response has been given at this time.

Another video shows agents pushing back the group while people yelled profanities and threw items at agents. The crowd appeared to mostly dwindle by 12:30 a.m.

This is a developing story.
