Amid the commotion, someone - protesters said it was guards at the facility - pepper sprayed the crowd and the truck continued into the parking lot. The center is used by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

"I saw that the truck was stopped, and then after some hesitation the driver stepped on the gas and revved up and started plowing forward, despite the fact that there were people standing right in front of the truck and people still sitting on the ground", she said.

The warden, Daniel Martin, is "conducting a top to bottom review of the incident, Wyatt correctional officers' response, and the Wyatt's protocols regarding protest activities outside of the facility", they added. They could be heard chanting, "The whole world is watching", as officers repeatedly asked them to move back.

"President Trump's immigration policies are immoral, and these Rhode Islanders were exercising their constitutional right to protest, " Raimondo said. Then, a man can be seen steering a large, dark-colored pickup truck toward the crowd, blaring its horn, and driving headlong into the line of protesters, who scream and leap to their feet or out of the way, but collectively continue to block the truck's path.

Hundreds of protesters have been arrested this summer in Never Again Action protests meant to disrupt activities at ICE detention facilities and other locations affiliated with ICE.

"It was terrifying because we didn't know what exactly his intention was", Amy Anthony, a spokesman for Never Again Action, told The Washington Post.

According to the Channel 12 report, the protest was peaceful until a auto tried to drive through the protesters who were sitting and blocking the parking lot entrance.

Woodworth is on leave pending an investigation by the Rhode Island State Police, and an internal investigation by the Wyatt facility. "This was a group of peaceful protesters who were pepper sprayed and nearly run over by correctional officers from the same facility we were here to protest".

Never Again Action said in a statement that about 600 people had gathered at the prison and that about 30 protesters had blocked entrances for several hours before the confrontation with the truck driver. Multiple videos have been uploaded to social media.

After the first ICE guard ran us over with his truck, the rest of them ran over & pepper-sprayed us. "Many protesters were trying to give the police statements and they refused to take our statements". They did not talk to the driver, they did not try to apprehend him. The group also later criticized police reaction to the truck incident, saying officers "stood by and watched, doing nothing".

The protest had been peaceful throughout the night until just before 10 p.m.

The black truck pulled up to a line of demonstrators on the sidewalk from the group "Never Again", a Jewish group that compares detention centers with Nazi atrocities during the Holocaust. He called for restraint as the investigation proceeded.

"Our state and our nation were built on the idea that everyone has a right to express their opinion publicly and peacefully", she said.

Never Again Action is a mass mobilization of Jews who have been holding demonstrations across the country in recent months to protest the Trump administration and ICE for separating migrants families and the current crisis at the border.
