Local authorities in Portland, Oregon assured residents they’ll be disinfecting and cleaning the “disgusting” OCCUPY ICE protest camp Thursday; pledging to sterilize the area after police cleared demonstrators Wednesday evening.
“The mayor’s office said it would pick up a portion of the tab for the clean-up, FOX 12 reported. Meanwhile, the Portland Police Bureau has cordoned off the site, calling it a biohazard,” writes Fox News. “Activists set up the camp near the local office of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement after an outcry over the agency’s crackdown on illegal immigrants.”
Local residents complained of makeshift tents, liquor bottles, human waste, furniture, and widespread drug use.
