Protesters in Colorado did not appreciate this at all and they shared this in a very unique way. Before vandalizing and spray-painting a Blue Lives Matter flag with “Abolish ICE” and then re-hanging the flag upside down, protesters also tore down the American flag and replaced it with the Mexican flag.
Authorities on the scene later managed to get the American flag back on the poles outside of ICE’s facility.
Observers of the incident caught parts of what happened on video and subsequently shared it on social media:
Protestors on @ICEgov property just pulled down the American flag and replaced it with the Mexican flag. The group by the doors is growing. Though most protestors are still on the street. pic.twitter.com/X2waaFMEOW

Illegal Immigration in America
Since President Trump’s time in office, he has remained fully committed to cracking down on illegal immigration. Critics claim that penalizing illegal immigration is hateful and bigoted; supporters of the president, on the other hand, maintain the importance of following immigration laws.
