https://democracynow.org - Democracy Now! was there this morning when New York City police officers violently shoved protesters and city council members aside as they escorted an ambulance away from 26 Federal Plaza with detained immigrant rights leader Ravi Ragbir inside to an ICE detention center. Ragbir, head of the New Sanctuary Coalition of New York, was detained when he checked-in with ICE, as hundreds held a silent Jericho prayer walk outside. An ambulance was called after Ragbir reportedly fainted when told he would not be released. This video shows NYPD shoving aside City Council Speaker Corey Johnson just minutes after Johnson came out from accompanying Ragbir to his check-in, and documents officers telling council member Ydanis Rodriguez to "stop resisting" arrest as he sat down on Broadway in front of the ambulance, and appeared to be cooperating with orders. At least 18 people were arrested today. Show more
