36 protesters arrested outside ICE detention center in N.J.
Updated 10:34 AM 7/1/19



Police arrested 36 protesters Sunday who blocked entrances to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention center in Elizabeth, authorities said.

“Thirty-six out of approximately 100 protesters were detained yesterday and transported to police headquarters,” said Kelly Martins, a spokeswoman for the city, said in an email Monday.

“The protesters did not have a permit to protest, but the police gave them a courtesy since they were not violent and peacefully protesting,” Martins said, adding arrests were made when protesters blocked entrances to the facility.

The protesters were charged with obstruction of a public passage, issued city ordinance summonses and released, Martins said.

“While at (police headquarters), the protesters invoked their Miranda Rights and refused to acknowledge any specific group they were affiliated with,” Martins said. “They are from various areas from throughout New Jersey and New York.”

Video from the scene showed Elizabeth police leading protesters away with hands zip-tied behind their backs as hundreds chanted “Hey hey, ho ho, racist ICE has got to go” and held signs reading “Never again means close the camps.”



The group “Never Again: Jews Against ICE Week Of Action” organized the protest – the first of several planned nationwide – comparing current conditions at detention centers to the Holocaust.

“We effectively shut down people’s ability to go into or out of the ICE facility for an hour and a half,” said Brandon Mond, spokesman for the group. “This is the first of many (protests) planned.”

“As Jews, we’ve been taught to never let anything like the Holocaust happen again,” the group stated in a Facebook post.

“Now, with children detained in unacceptable conditions, ICE raids targeting our communities, and people dying at the border while seeking safety in the U.S., we are seeing the signs of a mass atrocity,” the group stated. “We refuse to wait and see what happens next.”



The group started a GoFundMe page to cover its legal fees and to bail its members out. Money that is not used to cover legal fees will go to Movimiento Cosecha, an advocacy group for the rights of U.S. immigrants.

The conditions in immigration detention centers have been under scrutiny over concerns about medical care and hygiene.

Direct actions of profound solidarity, just like these, hold enormous power to change our country.

Thank you @NeverAgainActn, for your courage, compassion, and selflessness in pursuit of justice. https://t.co/Bl0B6ZFcAZ

U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez -- who referred to detention centers as “concentration camps” -- late Sunday tweeted her support for the group and encouraged her followers to donate money.

“Thank you @NeverAgainActn, for your courage, compassion, and selflessness in pursuit of justice,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.

Elizabeth officials were not immediately available to comment on the arrests Monday morning.

‘Never again;’ 1,000 activists stop traffic in Boston protesting ICE detention centers; 18 people arrested

7/3/19 9:33 AM



About 1,000 activists stopped traffic in Boston Tuesday night as they walked from the New England Holocaust Memorial to the Suffolk County House of Correction to protest U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention of immigrants.

The action, organized by a group of young Jewish activists, was part of a national movement to protest immigration detention by drawing a comparison to the Holocaust. A similar demonstration in New Jersey led to 36 arrests outside an ICE facility in Elizabeth.



We will put our bodies on the line. We will disrupt ICE from doing business as usual. Because we, as Jews, understand that #NeverAgain does not only apply to us. Never Again means now. Never Again para nadie. pic.twitter.com/IhNOIYZtdB

The protests were organized under Never Again Action.

“As Jews, we’ve been taught to never let anything like the Holocaust happen again. Now, with children detained in unacceptable conditions, ICE raids targeting our communities, and people dying at the border while seeking safety in the U.S., we are seeing the signs of a mass atrocity. We refuse to wait and see what happens next,” organizers wrote on their website.

Eighteen people were arrested in Boston Tuesday night, according to The Boston Globe.

“When we grew up hearing the words ‘never again,’ it’s referring to a moment like this,” Michaela Caplan, 23, one of the organizers of the event told The Boston Globe. Caplan told the newspaper her grandmother survived Auschwitz, but she lost more than 30 family members in the Holocaust.

The protesters - who stopped traffic in the heart of Boston during rush hour - chanted “Never Again” and “close the camps,” according to video of the protest.

Protesters Calling For Closure Of U.S. Border Camps Arrested At Philadelphia Fourth Of July Parade
July 4, 2019 at 4:30 pm



PHILADELPHIA (CBS/AP) – Police say 33 people protesting the treatment of migrants and asylum seekers were cited after briefly interrupting a Fourth of July parade in Philadelphia on Thursday morning. Hundreds of people gathered outside the Department of Homeland Security Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in Philadelphia demanding the closure of detention camps at the United States-Mexico border.

The Never Again Action, a Jewish-led group, organized the protest that began at 10 a.m.

They marched from ICE Philadelphia to the Fourth of July parade at Independence Hall.

Images from the scene show officers preventing protesters from traveling further onto the lawn of the Independence Visitor Center.

We’ve reached the Philadelphia 4th of July parade, where we’re met with a 3-deep line of police blocking our progress. We’re here to say that we cannot ignore reality and pretend like we’re all free in America, when we know that’s not true.
