VIDEO: Police arrest Johns Hopkins protesters upset over ICE, school police

Police in Baltimore arrested at least seven individuals after protesters upset with the school’s contract with ICE and private police force took over a Johns Hopkins University building.

Some of the people arrested were students, but others were community members, according to The Daily Caller News Foundation. Sit-ins at JHU’s main administration building had occurred for a month beforehand, but protesters obscured security cameras and bound doors shut in May.

The university had to shut down or move financial aid, academic advising, and disability services due to the occupation.

“This is an effort to protect black, brown, queer and all marginalized people who Hopkins is actively endangering,” JHU student Turquoise Baker said, according to The Baltimore Sun.
