Samuel Oliver-Bruno is in this van, in ICE custody. Bruno has been living in sanctuary in #Durham church for 11 months. Today, he left for ICE appointment, as he seeks deferred deportation. At that appointment, he was arrested. Church members, clergy, blocking van. @WRAL #WRAL
Several people here, at least, have said they are willing to get arrested in their efforts to protect Oliver-Bruno. #WRAL @WRAL
Oliver-Bruno’s son was just arrested by a Wake County Sheriff’s deputy. Deputy says he was arrested for assaulting an ICE agent. @WRAL #WRAL
Here is the immediate aftermath of the crowd seeing Oliver-Bruno’s arrest. @WRAL #WRAL
People here are singing and praying, and showing no signs of moving. #WRAL @WRAL
Oliver-Bruno’s pastor, Cleve May, was inside the USCIS with Oliver-Bruno and says plainclothes ICE agents tackled Oliver-Bruno to the ground. May argues that because the church members are here, Oliver-Bruno is still in sanctuary and shouldn’t be arrested. #WRAL @WRAL
Traditionally, ICE has not made arrests in churches as part of its “sensitive location” policy. #WRAL @WRAL
Morrisville Police just announced that the people surrounding the van have 10 mins to move, and that failure to do so may result in arrest. #WRAL @WRAL
The arrests are beginning. #WRAL @WRAL
Signal is bad out here, so my tweets are delayed in sending.
More than a dozen people were arrested, including Pastor Cleve May of CityWell United Methodist Church (where Oliver-Bruno has been in sanctuary). #WRAL @WRAL
Here’s the moment the last people were arrested, and the van carrying Oliver-Bruno pulled out. #WRAL @WRAL
The protest has now moved to the Cary ICE office. #WRAL @WRAL
For background, here’s our story from the day CityWell welcomed Oliver-Bruno into sanctuary. @WRAL #WRAL…
The magistrate’s office says 26 people have been arrested so far. #WRAL @WRAL
An ICE spokesperson says the appointment this morning was not with ICE, but with USCIS. He would not give Oliver-Bruno’s exact location — only saying he’s “in transit.” Traditionally, those detained by ICE in NC are taken to a detention center in GA. #WRAL @WRAL
(1 of 2) @clevemay1, a pastor at CityWell United Methodist Church, where Oliver-Bruno has been living, says he believes anger should not be geared solely at ICE agents, because they’re “doing a job they’re told to do.” #WRAL @WRAL
He adds: “If we can get angry on their behalf as we get angry at them, and if we can get angry at ourselves for electing a government that would tolerate this, if we can get angry enough and loud enough, maybe it will change.” #WRAL @WRAL
Here is the full statement from ICE regarding today’s events. @WRAL #WRAL

I asked ICE for a response/explanation of procedure, after @RepDavidEPrice/@GKButterfield statement that ICE has agreed to allow Oliver-Bruno to remain in U.S. in detention while his case is adjudicated. Here’s what ICE spokesman said. @WRAL #WRAL
I also asked ICE for an update on Oliver-Bruno’s location. I was referred to the agency’s online database, which shows he is still in Wake County. #WRAL @WRAL
