IRONY: Portland’s Occupy ICE Protest BUILDS WALL, Creates Border Patrol To Keep Out Police

On Wednesday, The Daily Wire reported that “Occupy ICE” protesters in Portland had been given eviction notices and were ordered to pack up their belongings and demonstrate against vague notions of tyranny and oppression elsewhere.

But while some indeed cleared out (in a manner of speaking, at least), others decided to stay and fight, erecting — ironically — a “border wall” to enclose the Occupy ICE PDX encampment and stationing “border guards” around their tiny independent nation.

No, really. The border wall, which is in fact quite high (perhaps, say, to prevent border jumpers), went up over the weekend.


On Wednesday, bystanders noticed that Occupy ICE PDX had furthered militarized their border, stationing a “border patrol” around the perimeter and charging their new “wall guards” with monitoring their makeshift border wall around the clock.

Since Occupy ICE was only recently introduced to the concept of border protection, they didn’t manage to keep things under control very well. By Thursday morning, bulldozers from the city of Portland were rolling through the camps, followed by a team of “cleaners” who picked up discarded tents and wrinkled tarps left to rot in the urine-scented air.

Oddly enough, it may have been the border wall that doomed the protest. Many of the “hardliners” who elected to stay after being given eviction notices by Portland police will be charged with erecting temporary structures in the public way.
