PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Police have cleared out the few remaining protesters left at the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement headquarters in Portland, Oregon, with no arrests.
Several news outlets report that police moved into an encampment at 4:30 a.m. Wednesday and that about a dozen remaining protesters left the area.
The activists had been protesting since June 17. They want to abolish ICE and end the Trump administration’s zero-tolerance immigration policy.
Authorities on Monday told protesters to leave by Tuesday evening or be arrested, and hundreds did leave by the deadline.
Portland Police spokesman Sgt. Chris Burley says police on Wednesday morning moved “slowly and methodically” through the camp and there were no injuries and no arrests.
City workers will remove wooden structures at the camp and clean up the area.
