Police in San Antonio have arrested a man for firing into an ICE field office.
The FBI put out a statement saying "an attempt to attack federal employees is a federal crime with serious consequences. The FBI will relentlessly pursue every lead in this case to find the individuals who are responsible”.
The FBI adds that they have "opened an investigation into the shootings and is currently processing the crime scenes and reviewing surveillance footage.”
No injures were reported.
As the Washington Examiner's Anna Giaritelli notes, "the attack is the latest in a string of incidents targeting ICE facilities nationwide". She reports:
Last month, protesters with Never Again blocked the entrances to ICE's national headquartersin Washington, D.C.
In mid-July, police in Tacoma, Washington, fatally shot an armed man after they said he hurled Molotov cocktails at an ICE building.
On July 12, a group of protesters in Aurora, Colorado, took down an American flag and two other flags from outside an ICE facility and raised a Mexican flag and a defaced "thin blue line" flag, which commemorates law enforcement.
Emily Covington, a spokeswoman for the GEO Group, a private prison company that manages some of the agency's holding facilities, said its Boca Raton, Florida, headquarters was protested at earlier this week as a result of "misinformation about the services the company provides and by escalating rhetoric from activists."
