So last night at the Wyatt Detention Center in Central Falls, a prison guard ran over a Jewish group called Never Again Action who had organized a march at the prison to protest the Trump administrations immigration policies.
Pretty messed up stuff.
BREAKING: Here is HD video of an ICE guard driving his truck into us as we sat peacefully blocking the Wyatt Detention Center.
We’re putting our bodies on the line because we see the camps and the roundups. We’ve learned from our ancestors: NEVER AGAIN FOR ANYONE. pic.twitter.com/KnOu5xoOEb

The peaceful protesters were also pepper sprayed.
I’m assuming someone will be without a job very soon!
PS – Congressman Cicilline is pissed!
Very disturbing videos taken last night outside the Wyatt Detention Facility.
The right of a free people to protest their government is fundamental to our democracy.
Wyatt needs to fully cooperate with the State Police and the Attorney General during their investigation.

As is Governor Raimondo!
I share the outrage Rhode Islanders are feeling about the incident depicted in the video at the Wyatt Detention Center. Our state and our nation were built on the idea that everyone has a right to express their opinion publicly and peacefully.
