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.

"All of the shots that we have found are on the floors where ICE had offices," Combs said, adding: "They knew what floors ICE was on, they knew what buildings they were in, and they hit those.

He called the shootings "cowardly, brazen, violent acts, absolutely without justification."

From the link:

“We cannot allow political discourse to lead us to the point of violence, where federal employees, innocent people doing their jobs, are put in harm's way," he said.

I agree and would apply this line of reasoning to all members of law enforcement.

I like how the first thing the right does when shooting events happen, is accuse liberals of politicizing the event. Here the ICE spokesperson started off politicizing the event...
