The headquarters of the Michigan Republican Party, headed by a former Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agent, was reportedly vandalized this weekend with the message "F--- ICE" painted on the side of the building.

Party officials found the graffiti Saturday and reported it to police, party communications director Tony Zammit told MLive.

The party said the vandalism was aimed at state GOP Chairwoman Laura Cox, a former ICE agent.


Cox seconded her role as the target, tweeting the graffiti was “attacking" her previous position. 

“This criminal act by the radical left will not intimidate me or my staff. @realDonaldTrump is working to fix the crisis at our border and this deserves serious discussion, not graffiti,” Cox said.

Zammit told the news outlet the police did not identify a suspect after reviewing security footage showing a person vandalizing the building between Friday night and Saturday morning. He said police are seeking additional information from the public.
