A bloc of protesters and immigration justice groups in New York held a protest on the 16th of September, in which sit-ins and later occupations of the federal ICE office occurred. After that, out of fear of being kettled and arrested, the protesters left the building and began marching outside the plaza. The police kettled them nonetheless and decided to arrest 26 of them on the basis of rioting (which noteworthily did not occur) which have up to today not been released. During the occupation, the protesters also had a loaded gun pointed at them by a private security guard.
