Tweeters are pointing out that the anti-ICE rhetoric and hysteria of AOC and Julian Castro may have contributed to the shooter's ire.

But the left is never responsible for its rhetoric...only we are.

...  "They have a 24/7 command center in there so there were people in the building," a former senior ICE official who spoke with an official based at the office told the Washington Examiner.

San Antonio police would not confirm the incident or arrest. However, San Antonio Police Department spokesman Officer Douglas Greene said the FBI's San Antonio office was handling the investigation.  ...

ICE blames overnight shootings on politicians, media and activists as suspects on loose
by SBG
 San AntonioTuesday, August 13th 2019

...   Investigators say that multiple shots were fired on two floors targeting ICE officials. No one was hit, but windows were broken in the building. One person was injured, it's not clear how they were, though.

"I don't think there's a question that they knew which floors the ice offices were," FBI Special Agent in Charge Chris Combs said Tuesday. The building shot at has multiple tenants, with the ICE facility located on upper floors.

"All of the shots that we have found are on the floors where ICE had offices," Combs explained. "This is no question a very targeted attack. It's not a secret facility, you can go online, it's out there. So they did some research, they knew what floors ICE was on, they knew what buildings they were and and they hit those."  ...

A person was detained shortly after the shooting, but was released after it was found out they were not connected with the shooting.

If you know anything about the attack, the FBI is asking you to contact their San Antonio field office. The FBI says it is worried of another possible shooting.

"We are concerned that there could be additional attacks, we have to stop that," Combs said. "We can not allow political discourse to lead us to the point of violence, where federal employees, innocent people doing their jobs are put in harms way."

I blame Trump. He extincted the dinosaurs, so he can't be trusted and must be to blame.

And, the suspect who was held has been released.  Looks like they have no idea who did it at this point.

Gun Fired Into Office Makes Fourth Attack On ICE In Past Month
August 14, 2019 By Chrissy Clark

On August 13, a man was arrested for allegedly firing shots at two Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) offices in San Antonio, Texas. Investigators told News4 multiple shots were fired into an office building. The bullets were aimed at the upper floors, where ICE employees conduct administrative and executive business. No one was hurt, but a window was broken.

San Antonio Field Office Director Daniel Bible blamed the media, activists, and politicians for rash of violence against ICE’s public safety employees.  ...

This shooting is the fourth anti-ICE incident in the past month, according to Washington Examiner immigration reporter Anna Giaritelli. The other three occurred in Aurora, Colo., Tacoma, Washington, and Washington DC.  ...

In a July 2 tweet, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) called ICE detention centers “concentration camps.” Aurora’s protesters said they were “March to Close Concentration Camps.”  ... Read entire article at The Federalist

Leftist attack on ICE office in San Antonio may be a portent of worse to come
By Monica Showalter

San Antonio's ICE office was hit with a barrage of bullets in the wee hours of the morning, mercifully striking no one, though there were people working in the specially targeted office.

Obviously, what happened was a political act, rooted in die-hard opposition to any enforcement of U.S. borders. According to the Washington Examiner, it was the fourth such act targeting law enforcement in just a few weeks:

You mean all that irresponsible and reckless rhetoric is creating a reaction?   :shrug:

The dimmies whine that Trump and the Right are inciting violence, but the violence seems to be coming more from their own rhetoric.

...Local law enforcement responded around 3 a.m. CT Tuesday to shots fired at the ICE field office located north of Interstate 410 near Brookhaven Drive, the FBI confirmed in a statement provided to the Washington Examiner.

"Shortly before or after, shots were also fired at a nearby building. Both buildings also house businesses completely unrelated to ICE operations....
