Federal agents served a search warrant on the West Oakland home of an immigrant family from Guatemala Wednesday morning, according to the Department of Homeland Security and Oakland police.

The Oakland Police Department said Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) agents served a warrant in connection with an investigation of sex trafficking of juveniles.

People were seen being taken away from the home, including at least one person covered by a blanket and led to a waiting car by unidentified people in plain clothes.

The raid by federal agents prompted a gathering of neighbors and supporters protesting against the presence of ICE and advocating for the rights of undocumented immigrants.
