Shots fired into ICE offices in San Antonio

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement on Tuesday blamed "political rhetoric" and "misinformation" about President Donald Trump's detention policies after shots were fired into two buildings housing ICE offices in San Antonio overnight.

No one was injured, but "had the bullets gone two inches in another direction, we could be here today talking about the murder of a federal official," said Christopher Combs, the FBI's special agent in charge in San Antonio.

Investigators said at a news conference that multiple shots were fired into offices of ICE's Immigration Enforcement and Removal division about 3 a.m. Regional offices of The GEO Group Inc., a private prison company that operates ICE detention facilities, are in the same building.

ICE said in a statement that shots were fired into a second nearby building that also houses ICE-related offices. The address of that building wasn't specified.

1. Interesting

Perhaps it's just a little warning from MS-13, to remind ICE to keep going after the low hanging fruit on the immigration tree...and to leave alone those who can and will fight back!

Maybe it's the traffickers that some on the CBP work with...a friendly reminder not to dig too deep!

Or, it might be ICE trying to make themselves look like targets of pro-immigrant groups!

There are so many and varied suspects...who could be responsible!

5. What time is it, kids? It's tin hat time!

"Regional offices of The GEO Group Inc., a private prison company that operates ICE detention facilities, are in the same building."

Okay, so we know T will shitcan anything to give in to big business. So, as I adjust my tin hat, I'm wondering whether there's a connection between The GEO Group and all the immigration arrests. IOW, are the arrests and the detentions just a way to drive business to The GEO Group?

15. I worked in the bldg for years. Many, many times I noticed

the heads of both "talking". So much so that i was curious as to who GEO was and googled them. Thats when i figured out the reason. This was 10 years ago.

10. No rush to judgment here, nosiree

Did the bullets come engraved with misinformation or political rhetoric? Was ICE the target, or was The GEO Group the target? Or were the shots just randomly fired and happened those buildings? How many federal agents are routinely present at 3 a.m. in the GEO Group offices, who could have been murdered by these shots?

There are lots of guns in our society, and hard as it is to imagine, some of the people in possession of those firearms aren't very responsible. I'd say it's far too early to politicize this, especially without any information on who was pulling the trigger. Obviously, the FBI has no problem doing that in this particular case, for some reason.

14. As above, ICE has officers working 24/7. The shots hit the

floor that they were on. GEO is in the same bldg, but not the same floor.
