KENT COUNTY, Mich. -- Kent County leaders are met with immigration activities Monday who are calling for the the county to cut its contract with Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE).

This meeting comes after the activities attended and disrupted the last two county board meetings.

County leaders offered to meet with the members of the group to talk more about their concerns and the contract.

The activists believe the county is making money from the contract, however, county officials say that isn't the case and they are just simply following the law.

Despite the meeting, the county leaders say they are unable to change or cancel the contract which resulted in the activist members getting up and walking out.

Nearly 2,000 residents have signed the petition calling for the contract to end.

    These ‘activists’ who demand that the county break a contract and disrupt county meetings ought to be banned from attending. I don’t know if the county can do that just to exclude the jerks, but in the past they’ve interfered with the business of elected officials. Ban them permanently.

    “Activists” do not run and control this country/state or local government,
    And they have no right whatsoever to be making “Demands” to anyone about anything.
    If they are so dead set on being such militant social justice warriors,
    I suggest that they pull up their “anchors” and go back to their own country of origin and try this BS there.
