The L rad yelled a few times, but has been silent. I imagine there are a few inside. https://t.co/BucUY4vkQ5
There's been a helicopter circling overhead had a little bit of a distance, but within the restricted zone, that appears to be some police reconnaissance, and I expect at some point a large contingent of agents to come in vehicles.— Dr. Juniper L Simonis; The Professor (@JuniperLSimonis) February 21, 2021
And obscene amount of crows caw overhead
A large group of federal officers in full riot gear suddenly emerge from the ICE facility just after 6 pm.
Someone decided to light a fire in a garbage can on the sidewalk, and the DHS response was to send out over 25 agents in gas masks and full riot gear— Dr. Juniper L Simonis; The Professor (@JuniperLSimonis) February 21, 2021

Officers go back into the ICE building after moving the trash can on fire behind the gates of the facility.
The demonstration comes to an end by around 7 pm.
Thank you to everyone who showed up today it isn't easy to be cold on purpose. It means a lot to us that you care about social justice and that you would show up short notice. Stay tuned for 3 ish tomorrow and TBA Monday at ICE.— Cozcacuauhtli (@cozca503) February 21, 2021
