A Cambridge man is facing charges after he allegedly posted a 500-dollar reward for the killing of a federal immigration officer.
Federal prosecutors say Brandon Ziobrowski tweeted in July that he would pay 500-dollars to anyone who kills an ICE agent.
He was arrested yesterday in New York and is facing a federal charge of using an interstate device to transmit a threat to injure or kill another person.
Ziobrowski's arraignment is set for next week in Boston federal court.
US Attorney Andrew Lelling says that the fact that the defendant voiced a political view was never the issue.
That he threatened violence and tried to follow through on it, was.
