SWAT team breaks blockade at Centennial ICE facility; protesters taken into custody

Protesters at an ICE facility in Centennial were taken into custody Thursday afternoon as SWAT team members from the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office removed them from a blockade.

The scene unfolded late in the afternoon at 12445 E. Caley Ave., an Immigration and Customs Enforcement field office.

Several protesters who were bound together, arm in arm, blocking access to a parking lot at the building were removed and arrested. Other protesters chanted and tried to slow down the SWAT team as it slowly and methodically moved in on the human blockade.

The group protesting U.S. immigration policies has been at the site since Sunday. Members have pitched tents, sat in chairs and cooked meals there.
