If you can imagine this now …
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) employees are facing a quickly escalating series of threats, including menacing protests against their own children and even shots “being fired at their offices.”
This action comes amid a “rising tide of anti-ICE rhetoric from the Left fueled by congressional Democrats, media voices and presidential hopefuls,” as Fox News reported on Wednesday.
Video published on Tuesday by Breitbart News shows protesters “in Florida from groups such as Never Again Action and Black Lives Matter Alliance of Broward County threatening workers and former employees of the GEO Group, a private contractor used by ICE,” the outlet also noted.
One protester even hurled personal threats against the family of GEO Group’s former general counsel, John Bulfin.
“We know where all your children live throughout the country … John Bulfin … You have kids in [bleeped out], you have kids in [bleeped out],” the protester yelled.
“We know everything about you and you won’t just be seeing us here.”

The footage, Breitbart pointed out, was taken just a day before shots were fired — early on Tuesday — at an ICE office and GEO Group office in San Antonio, Texas, in what the FBI has called a “targeted attack.”
This is obviously horrendous and unacceptable.
On Wednesday morning, acting Secretary Kevin McAleenan of the Department of Homeland Security said on “Fox & Friends” that people need to tone down the “dangerous” rhetoric that demonizes the hardworking ICE officials and employees who are trying to keep this country safe.
