‘We Should Stop Caging Human Beings’: Jewish Groups, Other Advocates Gather for ‘Close the Camp’ Rally in DTLA
Updated at 01:51PM, August 11, 2019



Members of Southern California's Jewish community and other immigrant rights advocates held a "Close the Camps" rally in downtown Los Angeles on Sunday, which marks a Jewish holiday of mourning and fasting.

"Tisha B’Av is a day of mourning for the plight of our refugee ancestors," says a statement by T'ruah, one of several Jewish groups who gathered outside the Metropolitan Detention Center. "On this Jewish day of mourning, we cannot ignore the cries of those whose tragedy is right before us, the many immigrants and asylum seekers who are being treated inhumanely by the Trump administration."

Tisha B'Av, which began Saturday and ends at sundown Sunday, commemorates the destruction of two ancient temples in Jerusalem.

The downtown L.A. protest was just one of many planned across the nation amid heightened tensions over migrant raids and overcrowded detention centers.

"We should stop caging human beings... They have a right to seek asylum," Aryeh Kohen of the group Bend the Arc said. “We should greet people at the border with doctors and social workers and not with the army or with cages.”

While the rally was mostly peaceful, at least two detractors showed up, including a man wearing Donald Trump gear yelling "shame on all of you" with a bullhorn.

Truck drives into row of Jewish protesters at ICE detention center in Rhode Island

(JTA) — A pickup truck drove into a row of Jewish protesters demonstrating at the street entrance to an ICE detention center in Rhode Island on Wednesday night. It appears no one was seriously injured.

Protesters were then pepper-sprayed, according to people present at the protest.

Hundreds of Jewish protesters had gathered at the Donald W. Wyatt Detention Facility, an Immigration and Customs Enforcement center in Central Falls, Rhode Island, and dozens blocked the entrance to the center’s parking lot. The protest was the latest demonstration by Never Again Action, a new Jewish group protesting ICE and United States immigration policy by getting arrested at ICE detention facilities.


At around 9:45 p.m., according to video, an eyewitness and social media posts from the protest, a black pickup truck driving 10 to 15 miles per hour drove into a group of about 30 people who were sitting in a row and blocking the street that fed into the detention center’s parking lot.

Video of the incident shows people screaming and running as the car moves slowly into the crowd. The crowd then broke out into a chant of “The whole world is watching.” Protesters surrounded the truck.

“The truck came in and people ran,” Lex Rofeberg, a protester who was not in the car’s path, told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency. “I don’t think someone got directly hit by the car.”

A person taking video of the event said “Everybody is OK, thank you for asking. I don’t think anyone’s hurt,” though the person later added that someone may have been hurt.

Never Again Action tweeted that the car belonged to a guard at the detention center.

“Oh my god,” the group tweeted. “An ICE Detention Center guard just drove their truck straight through a line of us sitting peacefully to block the parking lot. There don’t appear to be major injuries, still assessing the situation, police are moving in *on us* now.”

Oh my god. An ICE Detention Center guard just drove their truck straight through a line of us sitting peacefully to block the parking lot. There don’t appear to be major injuries, still assessing the situation, police are moving in *on us* now 😢

Minutes later, guards at the detention center pepper-sprayed the protesters.

“All of us who were in the vicinity caught some of the tear gas,” Rofeberg said.

“It was shocking, it was unexpected,” he added. “There’s some amount of risk when you go to an action like this. You don’t expect it to unfold like this.”

Correctional Officer Allegedly Drove Pickup Truck Into Group of Peaceful Protesters: He 'Ran Us Over'
By Christina Zhao AND Matt Keeley On 8/15/19 at 2:05 AM EDT
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: U.S. Is 'Running Concentration Camps On Our Southern Border'

A man, allegedly a correctional officer, drove a pickup truck into a group of Jewish peaceful demonstrators protesting outside the Wyatt Detention Center in Rhode Island on Wednesday night.

Hundreds of Jewish protesters, mostly members of Never Again Action, a group that advocates for the rights of migrants detained by ICE, gathered outside the Donald W. Wyatt Detention facility in Central Falls on Wednesday evening. The protesters stood blocking the entrance of the facility, linking arms while chanting for the abolition of ICE and the end to America's harsh immigration policies.

At around 10 p.m. local time, a dark-colored pickup truck drove slowly up to a group of roughly 40-50 protesters blocking the entrance to the location's parking lot, before driving straight through the crowd, according to a video uploaded to Twitter.

Amy Anthony, one of the protest's organizers, told Newsweek that the group has identified the man driving the truck as a correctional officer. "We have confirmed that the person driving the truck is a correctional officer who works for the detention facility," she said. "The driver was in his uniform when he hit the protestors. His rank and name were embroidered on his shirt and he was wearing a badge at the time."

Never Again Action claimed in a tweet that the truck belonged to an "ICE guard," however later clarified that he was a correctional officer in a press release.

Although Anthony says the group has obtained what they believe to be the driver's name, they have yet to confirm with law enforcement and has declined to provide details until his identity is officially confirmed.

Videos of the incident showed protesters screaming in panic as the car drove through the crowd. Shortly after the demonstrators began chanting "The whole world is watching" as they gathered around the truck.

Five protesters suffered non-life threatening injuries from being hit by the truck, Anthony told Newsweek. Two of the protesters were taken to hospital for their injuries. The extent of their injuries are currently unknown.

A dozen officers came out of the facility after protesters surrounded the truck and attempted to move the protesters, Anthony said. When the crowd did not disperse, the officers used pepper spray on several of the demonstrators, according to Anthony and a video of the incident.

Anthony also said that state and local police were on the scene, but did nothing to stop the driver.

"I can say that neither the local police nor the state police reacted in anyway to stop the driver or apprehend the driver or help the crowd," she said. "The police did not do anything. They did not talk to the driver, they did not try to apprehend him. Many protesters were trying to give the police statements and they refused to take our statements." She added that between 100 and 150 people witnessed the attack.

Never Again Action also shared a video of the aftermath of the incident to social media. "After the first ICE guard ran us over with his truck, the rest of them ran over & pepper-sprayed us. The police present just stood by and watched, doing nothing," the group tweeted. "#NeverAgainMeans doing what it takes to #ShutDownICE. We'll be back."

Despite the injuries her group faced, Anthony said Never Again Action is not deterred.

"Some of us were harmed tonight, but there are people ICE has detained that are harmed everyday. That's why we're doing what we're doing, and we're going to keep doing it," Anthony said.

Never Again Action is a mass mobilization of Jews who have been holding demonstrations across the country in recent months to protest the Trump administration and ICE for separating migrants families and the current crisis at the border.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Donald W. Wyatt Detention Facility did not immediately respond to Newsweek's request for comment.

Correction: This article previously stated that the officer driving the truck was an ICE guard. He is a correctional officer employed by the Wyatt Detention Facility. Although the facility has a contract with ICE, the officers and guards are not ICE employees.
