Hundreds of protesters descended on an Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility in Aurora, Colorado on Friday, and before they were done, they had taken down the American flag and replaced it with the flag of Mexico. Additionally, they defaced the flag, spraying it with the words “Abolish ICE” before raising it again, upside-down. Before the day was over on Friday, however, Colorado authorities had undone the damage and put the American flag back in its rightful place.
The protesters were there in reaction to the planned national deportation raids scheduled to start on Sunday.
From Fox News:
Aurora police Chief Nick Metz said the majority of protesters remained peaceful and some even thanked officers for their evening efforts.
The protest, part of a network of #LightsForLiberty events, also dubbed the “March to Close Concentration Camps,” called for detention centers at the U.S.-Mexico border to be closed and for all immigrants being held in those locations to be granted entry to the U.S., according to the event’s Facebook page.
Beginning Sunday, ICE agents will reportedly work to round up thousands of illegal immigrants across the U.S.
President Trump delayed the operation by two weeks to allow Dems to propose a bipartisan solution to the humanitarian crisis at the border.
Spoiler alert: They came up with exactly nothing.
But now, spurred on by the Democrat/Media conglomerate’s reckless coverage of this crisis – replete with phrases like “brown children in cages,” “dead migrants,” “no soap or toothbrushes,” “drinking out of toilets,” and “concentration camps” – American liberals are out of their minds. They have been driven to the brink of insanity, certain to their core that there is something tragic about ICE…doing their jobs. Something tragic about enforcing immigration law. Something tragic about deporting someone who has been ordered, by the courts, deported back to their home countries.
There’s no winning the war of words with these idiots. It’s best to just let them do their thing. We remain confident (and the polls back this up) that the majority of Americans see right through this whole charade. We’re sure there are some Democrat voters who love the idea of flying a Mexican flag above a detention facility, abolishing ICE, and throwing open the borders, but they are a radical minority. And the more the media and the Democrats try to pander to these people, the worse their 2020 election results are going to be.
We say, let them go for it. They’ll learn.
