And a KGW report says:
Multnomah County leaders on Saturday addressed reports of increased activity by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers at the courthouse and condemned any potential ICE activity at the courthouse.
In a statement (Multnomah County leaders), said they have not yet determined if ICE officers have been more active at the courthouse.
The statement was signed by Multnomah County Chair Deborah Kafoury, Vice Chair Commissioner Jessica Vega Pederson, Commissioner Loretta Smith, Commissioner Sharon Meieran, Commissioner Lori Stegmann, Judge Nan G. Waller, and Sheriff Mike Reese.
They expressed concern that an increased ICE presence could deter people from visiting the courthouse to access its services.
“This is devastating for the people accessing our services, and in many cases, counterproductive to a lawful community,” the statement read.
They also urged ICE officers to recognize that courthouses are a sensitive location and to consider the impact of their actions.
“We can't have people afraid to access justice in Multnomah County. “
One of the reports came on Friday from Mat dos Santos, the legal director for the American Civil Liberties Union of Oregon. He tweeted, "ICE is going into MultCo courts & arresting people and sending them to detention/deportation hearings. Some w/o criminal conviction."
Protests are held in Seattle, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Denver and other airports.
"The federal court for the Eastern District of New York issued an emergency stay halting President Donald Trump’s executive order banning entry to the US from seven majority-Muslim countries tonight, following widespread protests at airports around the country."
But we hear from California:
There are thousands here and more coming. They're asking for more to come and to bring food and water. We're staying until SF federal court issues a stay, as did NY.
And in Los Angeles:
We see UNITE-HERE Local 11 joining in the protests, no doubt building on the strength they built in the airport in their fight for a $15 minimum wage, and Black Lives Matter and young women of color in the lead and giving everyone a needed reality check.
