    Five Arrested in Protest Outside Dallas ICE Facility
    Photos posted on social media show the police response to a protest outside the Dallas facility for Immigrations and Customs Enforcement. Police made five arrests for blocking a passageway.

    Five people have been arrested during a protest outside an Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility in Dallas.

    Police responded to the Saturday morning protest of about 75-80 people outside the facility on Interstate 35E. The group was outside the government building protesting to 'Abolish ICE.'

    Dallas police said the protest started peaceful but protesters started to block lanes of the service road to I-35E. Officers initially blocked one lane for protesters, but they moved into the other two remaining lanes, taking up the entire southbound service road.

    Officers blocked the service road from traffic and asked the protesters to move. When they refused to move, police made arrests of five people, according to a police supervisor on the scene.
