Liberal protesters in California scrambled to protest as they believed ICE agents were making an immigration raid on neighbors.
They gathered outside of an Oakland home Tuesday where Homeland Security officials were actually executing a federal criminal search warrant in connection with a child sex trafficking ring.
The protesters wrote “OPD is a disgrace” in chalk on the sidewalk, slamming the Oakland Police Department and declaring “we love our neighbors” with an oversized banner.
A group of Democrats protested @ICEgov today in front of a house where ICE and @DHSgov were making arrests to stop a child sex trafficking ring. They LITERALLY protested Law Enforcement arresting illegal immigrant’s accused of sex trafficking CHILDREN. pic.twitter.com/2iQoSco3Ar

Clueless young liberals speaking with KPIX-TV admitted that although they didn’t know the details of what the federal agents were doing, the fact that they saw “a bunch of cop cars, a bunch of other cars that are apparently ICE cars,” was alarming given that there are “a lot of injustices going on.”
Meanwhile, the “injustices” suffered by children allegedly being trafficked for sex is being dwarfed by the left’s virtue signalling.
“Ice is not welcome in this country,” another neighbor proclaimed. “I don’t support what they do.”
Perhaps someone needed to explain to him the absurdity of his comment in light of the bust of a potential child sex ring in his own neighborhood.
“We’re really calling on the community to say that this is not okay, we’re gonna fight back,” neighbor Hadar Cohen said, holding a sign saying “No person is illegal.”
“We’re not gonna let people just disappear like this,” she added.
Oakland Police confirmed to KPIX that “this was in fact a federal criminal search warrant executed in connection with human sex trafficking of juveniles right here in the 700 block of 27th street,” reporter Neda Iranpour shared.
The ridiculous knee-jerk reactions of the left, especially as law enforcement was in the process of doing their job of rescuing human trafficking victims, were mocked and lambasted on Twitter.
I wish the video would have continued to show them after they found out what ICE was doing there.Especially after the comments they made. People need to let ICE do their job.

Why do they pay no attention to the point – human sex trafficking! C’mon people! That’s what is being made possible by our borders being kept open. ICE are heroes, not our enemies!

Why are all these people being interviewed? They’re clueless and I guess it says a lot about that reporter too. She was told already it was a child trafficking case. Don’t they all realize how horrible that is.#LiberalismIsAMentalDisorder

What this video shows is that emotion and people who use it as their filter have agreed to allow #IllegalImmigration and local #SanctuaryCity policies to keep them from knowing a human trafficking (slavery) business exploiting their #Progressive policies was right next door.

Do these people keep ready made protest signs by their front door for such occasions?

Hey what’s going on?I don’t know!But I’m protesting what ever it is! Hey, they are sex trafficking children, did you know? No, I didn’t but I’m still protesting! Because it’s ICE you know. Sex trafficking kids is OK, but ICE,is bad for protecting kids. Bless their ignorant heart.

Meanwhile, ICE officials are on a nationwide manhunt for illegals accused of heinous crimes against two young sisters. Perhaps, angry leftists will protest that too?
