Protesters have blockaded Portland ICE facility and are setting up an #OccupyICE tent camp

Published

Protesters in Portland, Oregon have besieged the city’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility and are putting up tents to house an indefinite protest.

An Oregon Public Broadcasting reporter visited the facility yesterday and today, and saw protestors standing in front of cars so that staffers could not leave. Supporters sent pizza, water and other provisions for the protestors. Someone brought a portable toilet to help with the protest.

“A group of us all decided together that it’s time to shut down ICE, and that’s what we’re doing,” protestor Tony Hadden told OPB. “We can’t let this go on.”

The protest grew overnight, with more tents being set up near the facility.

In an ironic touch, at one point someone from ICE reportedly asked the protestors to stop blocking their cars in “so they can get home to their families.”

"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert returned from New Zealand for a new show that aired Monday evening.

"I have been as far from the insatiable black hole of news that is Donald Trump as you can get on this planet.

I've heard there have been some developments over the last 10 days that did not go well for Donnie,"

The host ripped Trump's 71-minute press conference.

"Seventy-one minutes is not a press conference, it's a one man show," he explained. "If you liked 'Fleabag,' you'll love Donald Trump in 'Douchebag,'" he said.
