One person was injured when shots were fired through the windows of ICE offices in two nearby buildings.
ICE ERO San Antonio Field Office Director Daniel Bible blames it on the hateful language used by the media, activists and Democratic politicians like AOC who called the ICE officers all sorts of vile names and who calls the detention centers, concentration camps.
Police had arrested a man after the shooting but later released him when they determined he had nothing to do with it.
“This attack at the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Field Office in San Antonio is completely without justification. Political rhetoric and misinformation that various politicians, media outlets and activist groups recklessly disseminate to the American people regarding the ICE mission only serve to further encourage these violent acts. ICE officers put their lives on the line each and every day to keep our communities safe. This disturbing public discourse shrouds our critical law enforcement function and unnecessarily puts our officers’ safety at risk.”
The Washington Examiner tells us:
Last month, protesters with Never Again blocked the entrances to ICE’s national headquarters in Washington, D.C.
In mid-July, police in Tacoma, Washington, fatally shot an armed man after they said he hurled Molotov cocktails at an ICE building.
On July 12, a group of protesters in Aurora, Colorado, took down an American flag and two other flags from outside an ICE facility and raised a Mexican flag and a defaced “thin blue line” flag, which commemorates law enforcement.
Emily Covington, a spokeswoman for the GEO Group, a private prison company that manages some of the agency’s holding facilities, said its Boca Raton, Florida, headquarters was protested at earlier this week as a result of “misinformation about the services the company provides and by escalating rhetoric from activists.”
