Immigration and Customs Enforcement will soon beef up security at facilities in response to a recent slate of violence against the agency’s detention centers and offices across the country.
Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan instructed the Federal Protective Service to supply ICE facilities with enhanced security, according to a letter the Daily Caller News Foundation obtained. The directive is in response to a number of attacks against ICE property in recent time.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Our ICE law enforcement partners are coming under increased and ever more violent assault for merely doing their jobs. This is not just a threat to the law enforcement professionals within [the Department of Homeland Security] but an affront to the rule of law itself,” McAleenan said in a letter to distributed to DHS personnel on Sept. 12. “Make no mistake: Peaceful protest is a constitutionally protected, time-honored American tradition, firmly woven into the fabric of our shared American rights and values. But violence will not be tolerated.”
McAleenan referenced violent attacks on an ICE detention center in Washington state in July and an ICE office in San Antonio in August.
According to the Caller, McAleenan asked for “a detailed plan for securing all of our ICE facilities nationwide” and for ensuring the safety of the agency’s “hardworking workers.”
The Federal Protective Service will immediately begin providing additional security to the agency.
