This is what civil war looks like.
WATCH: Protesters Tear Down American Flag From ICE Facility, Replace It With Mexican Flag And Defaced Blue Lives Matter Flag
By Ashe Schow, Daily Wired, July 13, 2019
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.
Stephanie Hamill, a reporter for The Daily Caller, posted video of the protest on 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.
