Anti-Trump Los Angeles Councilman Is Latest Unhinged Democrat to Be Arrested at Protest to Shut Down ICE
Los Angeles police arrested unhinged Democrat councilman Mike Bonin Monday for blocking the entrance into the downtown Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
FOX News reported:
The LAPD arrested a Democratic Los Angeles councilman on Monday after he and other demonstrators blocked the entrances to a downtown Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention center for about an hour.
Dramatic footage showed Mike Bonin, a fierce critic of President Trump, being led away in plastic zip-tie handcuffs shortly before noon, after police informed protesters they were engaged in an unlawful assembly.
Images and videos posted to social media showed dozens of demonstrators waving signs and chanting slogans, with several blocking access to the detention center’s driveways and entryways.
Eighteen protesters were arrested in total, according to local reports. Bonin’s office acknowledged that the councilman had blocked the entrances to the ICE facility, and said that those arrested by the LAPD, including a local rabbi, were released shortly after they were booked.

Mike Bonin is the latest Democratic official arrested at an anti-ICE protest.
Democrats want to abolish ICE and open the US borders…
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) was the first senator to call for ICE to be abolished during an interview on CNN with Chris Cuomo Thursday night.

Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who won her Democratic primary race against establishment New York Rep. Joseph Crowley Tuesday night, strongly stands for abolishing the border-enforcement agency.
No justice – no peace.
We will fight, we will vote, and we will run until hate is dismantled.
Vote today and help us mobilize. AFTER VOTING, NYC #MuslimBan protests start at 6pm.

And this Democratic loon was arrested last week at an open border protest.
I was just arrested with 500+ women and @WomensMarch to say @RealDonaldTrump’s cruel zero-tolerance policy will not continue. Not in our country. Not in our name.
June 30 we’re putting ourselves in the street again.
