StreetNews Report:

Local Portland activists held a large rally to stop the ICE immigration holds that are now enforced by not only Portland, but cities and states nationwide. This early rally was held at the Multnomah Building in southeast Portland, the hub of operations for the Multnomah County Sheriffs Office and over 70 people were present with no presence of the mainstream media. Organizers with AFSC, Causa, Dream Activists, ACT, Portland Jobs With Justice, and VOZ (A latino/hispanic immigrant workers' rights organization) led the event and gave great speeches of how deportations stem from innocent situations and deeply affect families of those deported. A delegation of citizens entered the building and made their mission known as they traveled upstairs and into the office of Sheriff Daniel Staton, where they question a staff member which stated that Staton was in meetings and unavailable all day. The delegation proceeded to request a representative to deliver a message and letter to, and the MCSO "Business Relations Deputy" aquiesced to the demand and heard them as well as told them that he will deliver the letter. A response from Sheriff Staton is now pending and remains to be addressed. Escucha, Estamos En La Lucha!
