ICE Protest

Miranda Cortez, 5, holds up her 'No ICE' sign after marching to the courthouse before a county commissioners meeting Monday, July 10, 2017, in Jerome, Idaho. Hundreds of people from throughout south-central Idaho came to the Jerome County Courthouse July 10 to protest plans to lease space in the county jail to hold immigration suspects. Anticipating a crowd, the hearing was held in the courtroom rather than the county commissioners’ regular meeting room, but even this wasn’t enough space — even after the jury box was opened for people to sit, every seat was still full, so protesters lined the walls of the courtroom while more waited outside in the hallway and stairwell.
