1) I actually welcome the protest of Antifa and #OccupyICE - Till these protests were invented, funded and implemented by #DeepState / Soros Americans had no idea how much graft existed in Democrat run Urban Areas. America is working just like it should.
2) We set up our Constitution to allow the freedom of Speech, Debate and free association in the Public Square. Now that the attempt to turn the American Government into a National Socialist form of Governance is in the Public Square we can actually debate it.
3) So let's engage. Let's debate. Let's put the ideas out there and see what wins the day. I have confidence that our Constitutional Republic will survive the scrutiny.

Among this group of protesters who are now sitting in front of the police line is a person knitting. #OccupyICEPDX
The feds bring high-powered rifles, Portland brings a knitter. #OccupyICEPDX

So the feds gave the #OccupyICEPDX camp the order to clear out or face arrest.
Remember how the US flag was removed from the roof of the Portland ICE building? A new flag was added. This new flag says “refugees welcome.”

1. The Trump regime feels threatened by crying children because they — and all refugees — refute the Trumpist/fascist lie that humanity depends upon citizenship.
2. As Hannah Arendt wrote of refugees, they “have lost all distinctive political qualities,” “lost all other qualities and relationships—except that they [are] still human.”
3. Refugees and asylum-seekers embody our shared humanity. They prove that humanity does not depend upon nationality. They prove that Trump is a liar and a bigot.
