At around 10 p.m., KATU News crews reported more than 100 people in the area, chanting in front of the building. Crews later reported that officers had come out of the building and faced off with protesters in the streets.

Portland Police officers were also present at the gathering and they have also issued warnings for the crowd to stay out of the street.

"The Federal Protective Service (FPS) is returning to the Immigration Customs Enforcement building. Move away from FPS officers, off the roadway and onto nearby sidewalks," Portland Police tweeted.
