Approximately 200 protesters were bussed in from all over the state by the League of United Latin American Citizens. The demonstrators had formed a mob to attempt to stop the transport bus from moving the illegal aliens to another facility.
Appearing on ‘Fox & Friends‘ Sunday morning, reporter Griff Jenkins detailed how “one of the agents inside here when this bus was moving, when the melee was going on, was trying to control the crowd, was trying to ensure that he also did not step on a smaller little old lady, he broke his ankle. His ankle is broken this morning.”

A group of approximately 25 lawmakers also attended the protest. Jenkins reported that he had asked them how they felt about the fact that these detention centers were opened under the Obama administration, but they refused to comment.
Last week, an ICE office in Oregon was shut down as far-left activists from Occupy PDX camped in front of the building creating a safety concern. UPI reports that at least 100 people were involved in the occupation.
