Portland rioters barricade door and set fire to ICE building with federal agents inside: ‘Burn the precinct to the ground!’

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement building in Portland was vandalized and set on fire late Saturday night. Videos show federal agents reacting by firing crowd control munitions at the crowd of black bloc rioters in Oregon’s most populated city.

Shortly before midnight, nearly 100 black bloc demonstrators gathered at the ICE building in Portland for a planned protest, according to independent journalist Grace Morgan.

The ICE building was vandalized with graffiti, including “DHS murders.” Agitators barricaded the front door of the building with a chain link fence.

Someone put a traffic cone on the security camera to prevent the rioters from being identified. Fireworks were launched at the ICE building.

Video shared by BlazeTV personality Elijah Schaffer showed rioters set the front of the ICE building on fire.

Footage posted by Post Millennial editor-at-large Andy Ngo showed federal agents attempting to get out of the building, but the barricade prevented them from exiting. Law enforcement was forced to exit out of the rear of the building.

“An #antifa gives the #BLM fist salute while the crowd cheers on the burning of the @ICEgov Portland facility last night,” Ngo wrote on Twitter. “Officers were trapped inside when antifa set the building on fire.”

The mob chanted, “Every city, every town, burn the precinct to the ground!”

Federal agents fired crowd control munitions, including pepper balls, on the mob outside the ICE building.

One black bloc member challenged a Department of Homeland Security officer to a fistfight.

The Portland Police Bureau did not mention Saturday night’s unrest and did not announce any arrests regarding the riot.

Despite President Joe Biden succeeding Donald Trump as president, protests and riots have been occurring regularly in Portland. Last month, violence erupted at the Mark O. Hatfield U.S. Courthouse in Portland, which was also set ablaze.

There has been a soaring crime rate in Portland, and city council members responded by planning to use unarmed park rangers to combat gun violence.
