More than 300 residents, local officials and Cornellians converged on the Ithaca Commons on Wednesday evening, protesting U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers’ arrest of José L. Guzman, who lives in Ithaca and who the agency said is a Mexican national.

Guzman, 32, was picked up by ICE officers on Tuesday afternoon and is currently being held at a detention center in Batavia. Three ICE officers pulled up next to him as he was walking down Cascadilla Street on Tuesday afternoon and asked him for his name before arresting him, according to a Cornell student who spoke to The Sun on condition of anonymity.

    I wish political leaders cared 1/10th as much about citizens as they do about illegals.

    Perhaps the Native Americans should form their own ICE and kick out these so called patriots who have stolen their land. Without Immigrants Trump would have no wives. Rounding up dark skin people is racist. I bet all the thousands of Europeans here illegally are welcomed with open arms.

      And your last sentence proved beyond a doubt that mass immigration will only bring the downfall of America. The European mass immigration into America destroyed the Native American tribes, and so the current mass immigration of third-world hordes into our country will likewise destroy USA.

    • Drugs Are Bad M’kay?

      Racism is bad, m’kay?

      lolz

      Showing in-group preference is bad? Someone better tell the Jews and Asians lolz

    Look at the faces of those protesters. Do you not notice it’s always the fat ugly women and low-energy effeminate beta males who carry the banner of “resist”?

      the creatures of Mordor: “The Age of Men is over. The Time of the Orc has come.”

    They are really trying to compensate for their otherwise tedious and meaningless lives are they. It’s only when they act like rabid dogs that they forget they are losers with no purpose in life.

    Indians came to North America from Asia. So if you really want to make ridiculous arguments about who can claim this land as an original inhabitant we live in, the answer is squirrels and birds. This is a sovereign nation. We have every right to decide who can come and stay.

    If Svante actually UNDERSTOOD the laws his police department is supposed to ENFORCE he would know that the Federal officers don’t have to notify local law enforcement.

    This city is amazing how they think they are their own little country surrounded by reality.

    Jose was here ILLEGALLY. You can label them undocumented, or as the hilarious headline today in the Cornell Sun, “UNLAWFULLY PRESENT MEXICAN NATIONAL”.

    LOL.

    Liberals.
