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
