Dozens of protestors have reportedly been arrested after a protest calling for the abolishment of ICE halted traffic in midtown Manhattan.
The group reportedly held banners in the middle of West 42nd Street and Fifth Avenue demanding the camps housing undocumented immigrants be closed immediately. The protest, which was not sanctioned by NYPD, reportedly caused heavy traffic delays during rush hour in the area. At one point during the protest, a toilet was also spotted in the middle of the street.
Police arrested at least two dozen participants, but even as the officers began taking people away in handcuffs, many protesters remained sitting and chanting. The exact number of arrests is unknown.
