Protestors have been encamped at the Detroit/Mt. Elliott ICE Field Office (the Rosa Parks Federal Building, in a bitter irony) for the past two days. As of early this morning, all three entrances have been blocked. No ICE officers have been able to get inside.

The demands of the protestors include:

  • Closure of this facility
  • End to family separation
  • Reunification of families that have been separated
  • Reparations to those families who have been torn apart
  • Abolition of ICE
  • Prosecution of those who took part in these separations — acts of genocide

The citizen reporter providing this video, Eric Krawczak, observed that there have been lots of honks as people drive by. Police forces have been restrained so far, issuing only one order to dismiss.

Listen to the video for much more detail, with honks as the background soundtrack.

The protestors invite others to join for solidarity and mutual support.
