Liberal L.A. councilman gets busted for messing with ICE


Los Angeles City Councilman Mike Bonin was busted and handcuffed in front of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility in downtown Los Angeles on today. His crime? Was and a bunch of protesters sat down in the street, blocking the entrance to the ICE facility.


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.
