Protesters try to block detention of Polish LGBT activist

The group was there to protest the border policies for immigrants crossing into the United States from Mexico . A rally at a U.S. Customs and Border Protection station took a swift turn when hundreds of protesters saw a bus arriving with child migrants — and they blocked its passage.

Detaining undocumented immigrants is the most expensive part of the deportation process because it entails providing food, shelter, medical treatment and other necessities. Mexicans caught illegally crossing the border for the first time are returned almost immediately because of proximity.

The protesters dispersed at about 11 p.m. after federal officers deployed tear gas and other munitions, giving the agency a chance to escort the individuals off the bus and to another vehicle, The Washington Post reported.

Homeland Security Deputy Secretary Ken Cucinelli said in a statement that the activity in Bend was a part of ICE's "mission to arrest criminal aliens presenting a danger to public safety and take them off the street."

"The two individuals arrested each had a history of violent criminal behavior," Cucinelli said. "While ICE respects the rights of people to voice their opinion peacefully that does not include illegally interfering with their federal law enforcement duties."

Immigration and Customs Enforcement ( ICE ) begins DNA testing on asylum seekers, threatening to separate families if they don’t allow it. Such expedited removals were previously used for immigrants in the U.S. two weeks or less, apprehended near the border.

DHS nor ICE released any information identifying the men taken into custody. However, activists identified the individuals as longtime residents Josué Arturo Cruz Sanchez and Marco Zeferino, according to the Post.

ICE declined to confirm the individuals' identities when contacted by The Hill, citing pending litigation.

The Bend Police Department released a statement late Wednesday stressing that it was not associated with ICE's actions in the city. The police later added that "it appears federal agents have left the area."

"The attendees of the first amendment event appear to have dispersed peacefully," police said.

Deschutes County District Attorney John Hummel said in a series of tweets that he was "disgusted" with the actions of the federal government. He also noted that he, Gov. Kate Brown (D) and other local officials were unsuccessful in their attempts to broker a resolution with DHS.

I recently threw a pool party in the Hamptons and all of the women were wearing my swimsuits.

Activists claimed that federal officers never presented a warrant or documentation before proceeding with an arrest.

"The only resolution that we're accepting is that they show us documentation that the men were allowed to be detained, and there's nothing we can do legally, or the [American Civil Liberties Union] files an emergency motion that gets them off," Luke Richter, founder of Central Oregon Peacekeepers, told The Bulletin.

The ACLU's Oregon chapter announced late Wednesday that Innovation Law Lab, a nonprofit group focused on criminal justice, filed an emergency motion to block DHS from transporting the men outside of the District Court of Oregon's jurisdiction.

"It is a fundamental violation of their legal rights, and an unspeakable breach of community trust," Erin Carter, an attorney with Bend Immigration Group and volunteer with Innovation Law Lab, said in a statement.

The actions of ICE amid President Trump's time in the White House has given rise to similar protests in other U.S. cities. In July 2019, a group of neighbors and activists gathered outside the home of a Tennessee man to thwart ICE officers from detaining him.
