Activists show up for rally protesting actions of ICE agents

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Angered by recent arrests of undocumented immigrants by ICE agents, a large group of protesters showed up at the Immigration Customs Enforcement office in Portland on Monday afternoon to demonstrate their concern.

The rally began at 4:30 p.m. outside the ICE office at 4310 Southwest Macadam Avenue in Portland. 

Voz Hispana Cambio Comunitario and Milenio are the hosts of the event.

The description of the event on Facebook indicated the rally was planned "to protest the ... ICE campaign of terror in Oregon. Since Trump took office ICE agents have been terrorizing our community at courthouses, neighborhoods, workplaces and many other locations."

This is the second rally protesting the actions of ICE agents in Portland in the past week. Last Monday, several hundred activists staged a rally at the a building of the federal immigration agency.
