Protesters were arrested in front of a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) building in Philadelphia Tuesday after violence erupted in the streets.
The large group of protesters, calling for the abolishment of ICE, has reportedly been outside since Monday, and have been taking part of the “Abolish ICE” movement, in regards to President Donald Trump’s zero tolerance immigration policy. Similar protests have occurred throughout the U.S. including in Washington, D.C., and various parts of California, but they fortunately have not turned out to be as violent.
In videos posted on social media, protesters with parts of their face covered can be seen clashing with police and what appears to be other protesters in the streets.
