Grand Rapids City Commission meeting adjourned after ICE protesters refused stop chanting

Scenes from the Grand Rapids City Commission meeting that had a crowd of protesters on Tuesday, Feb. 26, 2019.

Jilmar Ramos-Gomez was arrested in November after setting a small fire inside Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital and then standing on the rooftop helipad. He was later held for three days by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, who concluded he was a “foreign national illegally in the U.S.” even though he was arrested with a U.S. Passport.
