Sixteen people who were arrested after demonstrating outside a Miramar Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility Wednesday have been released from the Broward County Jail in Fort Lauderdale. One other person was transferred to the jail in Pompano Beach and is expected to be released soon.

The 17 protesters were charged with unlawful assembly, a second-degree misdemeanor, and obstructing a roadway, a first-degree misdemeanor charge, after gathering in the intersection of SW 29th St. and 145th Ave. to call on Mayor Wayne Messam to shut down the ICE office.

Broward County released its 2017 water quality report Monday.

The report, from the county's Water and Wastewater Services office, shows drinking water across Broward County had low, acceptable levels of all chemicals during 2017.

“Once again, our water met or exceeded all standards of the federal Safe Drinking Water Act,” Alan Garcia, the Director of Water and Wastewater Services, wrote in a statement Monday.

For survivors of the Parkland School Shooting, Wednesday’s fireworks celebrations for the Fourth of July could be a source of anxiety.
