ICE Agents Arrest One Person As Part Of Criminal Investigation
(by Jeff Shuttleworth) – U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement officers arrested at least one person in Berkeley this morning in furtherance of an ongoing criminal investigation, authorities said.
However, ICE agents didn’t make any civil arrests, a federal official said, commenting on background.
The activist group By Any Means Necessary (BAMN) said in a news release, however, that three people were arrested just south of downtown Berkeley today.
“ICE officers in plain clothes and wearing tactical vests entered a home and arrested three people,” BAMN said.
The group said it plans to hold an emergency protest in front of Berkeley’s Old City Hall at 2134 Martin Luther King Jr. Way at 4 p.m. today.
Berkeley police and Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin weren’t immediately available for comment on the ICE operation.
