Anti-ICE Protesters Remove American Flag, Raise Mexican Flag, Vandalize ‘Blue Lives Matter’ Flag Ahead Of Raids

Aurora, Colorado has gone full-blown progressive radical these days. Authorities there had to restore an American flag to its rightful place Friday evening after protesters demonstrating outside a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility pulled down the star-spangled banner and flew the flag of Mexico in its place. There was also a flag with foul language on it raised. Classy.

While they were at it and for good measure, they also took down a “Blue Lives Matter” flag that honors law enforcement, spray-painted it with the words “Abolish ICE,” then raised the flag upside-down, on a pole next to the Mexican flag, according to local media. It’s so breathtakingly anti-American it churns your stomach.

Approximately two-thousand radical pro-open borders protesters gathered in Aurora, CO outside the federal facility that holds illegal immigrants, to protest ICE raids scheduled to begin Sunday in Denver and other major U.S. cities. Police Chief Nick Metz said the majority of protesters remained peaceful and some even thanked officers for their evening efforts. I doubt there were very many of those but the media will play that aspect up, count on it.

This protest is part of a network of #LightsForLiberty events, also dubbed the “March to Close Concentration Camps.” They are demanding that detention centers at the U.S.-Mexico border be closed and for all immigrants being held in those locations to be granted entry into the U.S. In other words, throw open our borders and kiss our sovereignty and security goodbye.

Starting tomorrow, ICE agents will carry out their duty and begin to round up thousands of illegal immigrants who have already been notified of deportation. It should be noted that these are the worst of the worst here, including murderers, pedophiles, rapists, etc. They didn’t just break one law, most are stone-cold criminals but the left doesn’t care. They want them all to stay.

From Fox News:

“President Trump delayed the operation by two weeks to allow Dems to propose a bipartisan solution to the humanitarian crisis at the border.

“Speaking to Fox News during his visit to the border Friday, Vice President Mike Pence said the upcoming ICE raids will not be done at random and will be focused on “removing those deported by courts.”

“Besides Denver, the raids were expected to take place in Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, and San Francisco. Raids scheduled for New Orleans may be delayed due to Tropical Storm Barry, KCNC reported. Other #LightsForLiberty protests took place across the U.S. Friday, including in San Ysidro, Calif.; Portland, Ore.; and New York City.”

These communist leftists hate the police and any authority who dares to enforce the rule of law. Each and every one of them that had something to do with the flag stunt and charging the barriers should be arrested, but this is now-liberal Colorado we are speaking of. Around 50,000 undocumented immigrants live in Denver, Denver’s Immigration and Refugee Affairs Director Jamie Torres pointed out.

Speaking of backward:

“Our immigrants are very important to us,” Denver Mayor Michael Hancock said in a press conference on Friday. “They’re our neighbors, they’re our friends, they’re our coworkers. They are part of our economic, social, and cultural fabric of what makes Denver great.”

“As my Grandma Delores would say, this ass-backward policy of the White House has taken us backward,” Hancock added, according to The Post. “It has the immigrant community fearful.”

If they weren’t breaking the law there would be nothing to be fearful of, now would there?

Armed guards outside the center were posted and took down the Mexican and Blue Lives Matter flags. The U.S. and Colorado flags were reportedly re-hoisted. Protesters waved “ABOLISH ICE” signs and chanted slogans like “free them all.” The Aurora center is privately run by the Geo Group and has been since 1986. The center is supposed to house 150 detainees. Unsurprisingly, they had no comment on the matter.

The former secretary of Homeland Security under Barack Obama, Jeh Johnson, even clapped back on this insanity. He said there’s nothing unusual or illegal about the upcoming ICE raids that are targeting illegal immigrants who have orders for deportation.

“Deportations occur all the time,” Johnson told MSNBC. “Of those who have been ordered deported by an immigration judge, we simply have to enforce the law, particularly if someone has been ordered deported. They’ve exhausted all their appeal rights. Enforcement actions themselves are not extraordinary.”

“Chain link barriers, partitions, fences, cages — whatever you want to call them — were not invented on Jan. 20, 2017, OK?” Johnson said. Johnson also slammed Democrats’ proposals to decriminalize illegal border crossings, saying that “is tantamount to declaring publicly that we have open borders.”

I have no love of Johnson, but sometimes, even leftists tell the truth. This is one of those times.

Look for protests throughout the weekend against ICE, the police, President Trump, etc. across the United States. Some may even get violent. If they get in the way of upholding the law, they should be arrested. Let’s hope our police officers and agents stay safe this weekend as they do their duty. Communists love violence though and don’t be surprised if it goes sideways.
