Anti-fascist protesters from different groups were arrested after a rally outside the ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) office in downtown Seattle on Wednesday night ended up with property damages and scuffles with police.

Businesses and other buildings were vandalised by the activists who called for the abolition of so-called ICE forces. Demonstrators chanted slogans as they marched through the city centre decrying both the former and actual US Presidents Donald Trump and Joe Biden, as the latter was officially sworn on Wednesday.

Several US flags were burned and thrown to the ground by the protesters blaming both Democrats and Republicans for not fighting the agency criticised for immigrants' rights violations.

Similar rallies against the ICE took place in Portland and Sacramento following the inauguration ceremony in Washington DC.
