The group of rioters vandalized the building with graffiti, writing “DHS murders” on the walls.
They also barricaded the front door of the building with a chain-link fence, according to independent journalist Grace Morgan.
Parts of the fence around the ICE facility in Portland OR have been dismantled by protesters & laid against the main entrances. Federal agents get on the loud speaker & warn not to trespass, including press. #PortlandProtests pic.twitter.com/cqiyflcZ26

Someone even put a traffic cone on the security camera to prevent law enforcement from identifying the rioters.

One video shows federal agents attempting to get out of the building, but the barricade prevented them from exiting.
The officers were forced to flee out of the rear of the building.
Watch the moment federal officers rushed out to respond after #antifa set the @ICEgov facility on fire last night. Antifa barricaded the front of the facility to trap people inside while the building was on fire. #PortlandRiots pic.twitter.com/NaXYzSJoj6

While the building was on fire, Antifa rioters held up the Black Lives Matter fist and chanted, “Every city, every town, burn the precinct to the ground!”
