Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents are Nazis. They have concentration camps set up at the border. They should be abolished. That’s the narrative that Democrats, the liberal media, and their activist goons have been peddling for months and the results have turned violent. In Tacoma, Washington, an activist with the extreme left-wing Antifa attacked an ICE facility. He was killed in the failed assault. Now, in San Antonio, two ICE facilities were fired upon. The attacks occurred in the early morning hours. The FBI is fairly certain that this was targeted attack as only the floors with ICE offices were stuck. The suspects knew what they were doing and whom they were targeting (via News 4 San Antonio):

Investigators say that multiple shots were fired on two floors targeting ICE officials. No one was hit, but windows were broken in the building. One person was injured, it's not clear how they were, though.

"I don't think there's a question that they knew which floors the ice offices were," FBI Special Agent in Charge Chris Combs said Tuesday. The building shot at has multiple tenants, with the ICE facility located on upper floors.

"All of the shots that we have found are on the floors where ICE had offices," Combs explained. "This is no question a very targeted attack. It's not a secret facility, you can go online, it's out there. So they did some research, they knew what floors ICE was on, they knew what buildings they were and and they hit those."

ICE ERO San Antonio Field Office Director Daniel Bible says the national discourse surrounding ICE and the topic of immigration is reckless, blaming today's shooting on politicians, media and activists.

“This attack at the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Field Office in San Antonio is completely without justification,” said Bible. “Political rhetoric and misinformation that various politicians, media outlets and activist groups recklessly disseminate to the American people regarding the ICE mission only serve to further encourage these violent acts. ICE officers put their lives on the line each and every day to keep our communities safe. This disturbing public discourse shrouds our critical law enforcement function and unnecessarily puts our officers’ safety at risk."

National Review reported that police are questioning a suspect in the shootings.  No one was hurt or killed, which is very good news. Yet, when will Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) be questioned as to whether her hyperbolic rhetoric about ICE is causing those to act violently? This was a targeted attack. 

Conservatives want immigration laws enforced, criminal aliens deported, and an overhaul of the VISA/green card system. We cannot handle hordes of people from Central America coming here because they have a sob story. Even President Obama said that poverty and crime are not reasons for asylum. They’re not. That’s another aspect of our immigration policy that needs to be changed as well. It’s a dangerous journey. Human trafficking is rampant. Terrorists can hide among the crowd; Nicaraguan police arrested ISIS operatives this summer. It’s a national security issue. And it’s totally irresponsible for these parents subjecting their kids though this when they everyone knows there’s a new sheriff in town who will enforce the law. This isn’t controversial of fascist. It’s the law. And the laws must be enforced. Apparently, that’s cause for people to start shooting federal offices.
