Watch: Protesters Tear Down American Flag From ICE Facility, Replace It With Mexican Flag And Defaced Blue Lives Matter Flag

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.

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.

A version of this story appears on the Daily Wire website.

      People are sick and tired of the Democrat’s especially those holding seats in the House and Senate for failing to Represent American’s and America per their Oath of Office..They are all in it for themselves with no real direction or solid agenda other than Destroying Our Country with their sickness of allowing boy in girl’s restrooms,babies to be killed at 9 months,Protecting and Aiding Illegals while we have Millions of Homeless American’s living on the streets and they don’t want to set a Budget to live by driving up Our Debt even higher with Failed Investigations and Obstruction in every which way they can..
      They don’t want to protect Our Country or American’s with Border Walls/Structures..
      To further this they are aiding Muslims in their expansion of Families to grow so they can move to other Cities and States to overthrow Our Government and bring in Sharia Law over Our Laws and Our Constitution..This is happening now without us knowing by a Facade by drawing attention to everything else going on…American’s need to Wake up before it’s to late..

      It is not uncommon to see cars with Mexican flags on the back in my part of Southern California. One time there was over 50 vehicles going down a main highway with Mexican flags on the back and stopping traffic and showing all of us who is boss. This is where we are going. Our Gov. can’t wait to open the borders.

      • Dragonfly43 says:

        And let’s not forget how the previous Mexican president said they’d take back California without firing a shot! Looks like they’re doing it. When I was in SoCal some years back, there was a Mexican standing on the sidewalk urinating. That’s the kind of garbage we can expect with illegals!

      • Eleanor says:

        Evidently everyone has forgotten the significance of raising a flag in a country it does not represent. It means that land has been conquered and that it no longer belongs to the people represented by the former flag!! This means you folks in COLORADO are Mexican now!! How does that sit with you?? Remember Cooch’s Bridge – the 1st time the American flag flew to proclaim our sovereignty over Britain?? Fort M’Henry – where Francis Scott Keye penned the words for our anthem?? How about San Juan Hill and Teddy Roosevelts victory over the Spanish?? Surely you haven’t forgotten the 6 brave men who raised the flag over Iwo Jima during WWII, 3 of whom were later killed? I am ashamed of the Americans who stood there and allowed this to be done in Colorado, or any other state.

      • Terry says:

        Sorry to say but you are right and it is coming. Here in California they are starting to come down on the gun owners.

        • Dragonfly43 says:

          Sadly, in California, you now have to have a permit to buy ammunition! Newsome just signed it into law! What a load of crap. They want to keep track of who buys it and how much so they can confiscate it down the road! People in Cali better drive to Nevada and stock up!

    • Eleanor says:

      We know it’s inevitable, but we are fighters.

  • “Night of the ling knives” was 1934, Kristallnacht was 1938. But that was a long time ago. Things move faster these days. I only hope that the American People are more observant then the German people were some four-score years ago.

  • sweetLadyMary says:

    Where were the police? They should have arrested the people who took down our flag! They love Mexico so much they out to get the hell out of the U.S. and go live in Mexico. Anyone arrested that wasn’t here legally, should have been deport .

    • Bill says:

      Take down our flag and fly the Mexican one? They should have been taken down and beaten senseless!! If those scumbags want to fly that dirty rag, they should go back to their own country, willfully or by FORCE!

    • Deb says:

      guess police are against American citizens as well…don’t need them anymore, they are useless…we must protect ourselves and our families by any means necessary.

  • Del says:

    Identify and Arrest each person there that participated and Fine them no less than $1000 ..Time to start hitting them in the pocketbook..

    ONLY GOD CAN “DELIVER” ALL THOSE *ENSLAVED* TO THE

  • Henry Messer says:

    Congress needs to pass a law defending our flag. The demos will do anything to keep their names in print and on tv. If conditions are as bad as the demos say, then why are they not passing more funding? It’s stupid when you say the border patrol is doing awful thing and then you are not passing supporting legislation to assist them. Calling for their disbandment is like a child threatening to take his toys home if the game is not played to his rules. Leave political reason out of this. If you want open borders just say so. Oh you can’t you will lose voters.

  • Donald says:

    This is not new they did this before in the early obama years. Students went and tore down America flags at schools and put up Mexican flags and hung the American flag upside down. Mexican’s also beat up a group of elderly people having fun at a July 4th party in Arizona yelling at the older folks and telling them Arizona was their’s. If you are just now getting it your late to the show. There have been groups active in California, Arizona, Colorado,New Mexico and Nevada with the goal of taking these states away from America. Research the internet and you will find them they like to call themselves the Re-conquistador’s.

  • Russ Wiley says:

    I am so, so glad to be out of Colofornia. The only bastion of civility in CO is Colo Springs, but they are surrounded by the liberal left and may very well call within the next 6-8 years and Colorado will continue it’s morph into Colofornia.

  • Rae says:

    There are laws about defacing public property, enforce them!

  • Stephen Russell says:

    Ring flagpoles after raise flags for AM with ware, spikes, etc??
    Block entry to.
    Block acess points.
    Ready water cannon,etc.
    ALL such centers

  • Globalcooler says:

    Hang the protesters from the flag poles.

  • Tpatriot says:

    Why is the plan being broadcast like an invitation to protest? Just arrest the crooks and ship them out.

  • Alice says:

    It’s time security clearance is reviewed and those who prove not to be loyal, unable to keep their
    mouths shut not be advised about anything planned by our government before hand. We need to have an
    advisory board to determine what and when and by whom public info. can be released. Anyone doing
    otherwise should be severely punished, reprimanded and a second time should be cause for dismissal.
    Also should go for Politicans preaching untruths imparticular to youths.

  • Nancy West says:

    I hope they start the deportations in Colorado first

  • Evangeline says:

    I don’t care what state they start them in as long as they start them soon!

  • gloria mcmillian says:

    I want to know how these rabid people breached the property. I worked fir borderbpatrol atva flight training facility and no one could ever get through unless you are expected. Fencing is wired to electrocute and gates are won’t open without proper codes. Alarms ring out loud if even close to wrong person is trying to get through. This is shocking that this happened and can’t be swept under the rug. All participati g should be tried for treason and penalty carried out. I am for capital punishment for this because I know how this can be mocked and worse will happen because those involved will think they can do whatever they want. No mention of arrest or how it happened. Something is very wrong and Colorado must answer.

  • They have somewhat ruined Mexico, and now they are here.
    This lawlessness is just the beginning, and just wait until the
    Mexico gangs take over. Think we have it bad now!
    We were warned, about this 30 years ago, and now it has come to
    our door steps.
    democratic party is as dysfunctional, and out of touch with the reality
    with the border. Polosi sees the backfire now….
    The deportations is the best thing I have heard in years.

  • Marilyn says:

    How dare they take down my beautiful American flag and replace it with a Mexican flag. People, THIS IS NOT MEXICO!!! THIS IS AMERICA!!!! If I wanted to live in Mexico, I’d move there. Things started to break down when we started the ESOL program in schools. This is not going to end very pretty unless someone with some common sense gets this stuff stopped – NOW!!

  • Joh. Boyd says:

    Al Border patrol facilities should be armed with 60 caliber machine guns. Anyone with weapons and threatening violence should be shot on site. Period!

  • William conley says:

    The police don’t want to help that’s fine people have the right to protest, but they don’t have the right to trap people in buildings with very real threats of harm. I say heavily arm ICE agents and their first choice is non lethal if the crowd won’t disperse give them three warnings if those are ignored anyone who approaches is considered a threat to their life and can be dealt with by lethal ordinance. This shit won’t ever stop until someone gets beat within an inch of their lives or is put in prison for at least a decade or outright killed when shit goes further than it already has.

  • Madeleine says:

    Congressional Democrats are extremely nervous because they know Military Tribunals are coming up and all treasonous scoundrels who have been taking millions from Drug Cartels, Human Traffickers and Pedophilia, are going to go to jail! Wish they would hurry up and remove them from causing further harm to the Country and that goes for media moguls too!
