Demonstrators at a protest outside an Aurora, Colorado Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention facility on Friday removed an American flag and replaced it with the Mexican flag. They also defaced a Blue Lives Matter flag before flying it upside down next to the Mexican flag.

CBS4 reported that the Blue Lives Matter flag was spray-painted with the words “Abolish ICE” in red.Journalist Isaac Vargas first posted the video to Twitter.

WATCH:

The demonstration saw hundreds of protesters gather in objection to the treatment of illegal immigrants within the facilities, and comes ahead of the announced ICE raids in multiple cities across the country, including Denver.

“The original flags outside the ICE facility, including the U.S. flag and Colorado flag were placed on the flag poles after the crowd dispersed. The Mexican flag and spray-painted Blue Lives Matter flag were removed,” CBS4 reported.

As The Daily Wire previously reported, ICE agents will begin searching for 2,000 illegal immigrants on Sunday. The focus, ICE told The New York Times will be placed on those illegal immigrants who pose a threat to their communities.

“”As always, ICE prioritizes the arrest and removal of unlawfully present aliens who pose a threat to national security, public safety and border security,” an ICE spokesman told the Times.

“However, all of those in violation of the immigration laws may be subject to immigration arrest, detention and – if found removable by final order – removal from the United States,” the spokesman added.

Left-wing media outlets presented the raids as targeting families, largely ignoring or downplaying the fact that the target of the raids are dangerous illegal immigrants.

President Donald Trump had announced the raids several week earlier, but delayed them after political pressure and warnings from ICE officials, who raised safety concerns. The details of the raids had been leaked to the press, putting ICE agents in danger.

Weeks later, and we face the same situation. The raids have been announced by the media (and Democrat congressmen have posted the rights illegal immigrants have in order to avoid being arrested) and ICE agents are in danger.

They have already been protested around the country and portrayed as racist authoritarians. In Portland, OR, last year, protesters “trapped” ICE agents inside their offices while police refused to help. Members of the violent left-wing group Antifa (which ostensibly stands for “anti-fascist” while employing fascist tactics) joined in the protests. The danger prompted the union that represents ICE agents to call out Portland’s Leftist mayor for putting employees in harm’s way.

“Your current policy forbidding Portland law enforcement agencies from assisting employees of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency who request law enforcement assistance while at or away from work is a violation of the United States Constitution’s Equal Protection Clause,” the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council’s lawyer said in the letter. “As you are aware, the 14th Amendment forbids the government from denying any person or persons equal protection of the laws.”

The 10 cities that will be the focus of the ICE raids are: Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, New York, and San Francisco. New Orleans was also on the list but was removed due to tropical storm Barry.

      Why just arrest the anti Americans when they will get nothing but a slap on the wrist? Stop this treasonous behavior for once and for all–shoot their hineys after warnings, if they INSIST on not stopping such ludicrous behavior they deserve it!!! This is WHY America is going down the tubes, too much pampering of CRIMINALS AND ILLEGALS.

    These people love Mexico flag so well, move to Mexico. These is USA and we fly USA flag. If Colorado had a good governor he would have stand up and stated this is the great state of Colorado ,we do not disrespect the flag and protesters will be jailed. But sorry to say we have a gay democratic governor and no back bone to do the right thing.

    Denver has turned into a complete sh*t hole. I am so glad I moved away over 20 years ago. It is a mess. I am afraid for my friends and family there.

    Bring in the military, and prosecute all responsible governmental officials responsible for the lack of police response for violation of constitutional rights. Enforce the current laws.

      Burn the bitch and I’m American Hispanic. People come here for a better life the right way, the legal way. That Mexican flag means nothing to me, I was born here and I owe no damn allegiance to the Mexican flag although my heritage is Spanish-Mexican. Finding out more and more the so called civility and culture of the Mexican people and I don’t want any part of it. Some are okay, but most I wouldn’t trust because of their hate towards Americans even towards Hispanic born Americans.

    The American Flag is a symbol of Americans that have given all to defend our country and its freedom. No one should have the right to remove it and replace with a foreign flag. They get that right only when their country battles us and wins. As a traitor to our country the person or persons responsible for this act should be put on trial and if convicted be hung by the neck until dead.

    I don’t approve of USA policy on abortion and homosexuality. Does this mean I have a right to go vandalize, harass, and verbally/physically attack their property or people? If the USA doesn’t start enforcing the laws on our books and taking down those that are creating lawlessness, then our land will be ruled by lawlessness. That’s what starts revolution and civil war. We have already gone longer without civil war than we did before the first one. This land is more divided than it was in April 1861. This country is bursting at the seams with discourse and entitlement. Entitlement means you must take away from those that have (worked) to give to those that don’t have (not worked). We cannot keep going like we are, and are bound to crack due to all the stress. A war of religion and values is coming, and I fear our worst enemies are just waiting like a hungry tiger to pounce on us when we are fighting each other. God help us, and God Bless the USA and forgive her!
