It was already reported, how on Friday, left-wing activists, who numbered an estimated 1,000 or more, gathered outside the Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility in Aurora, Colorado to protest against the Trump Administrations efforts to secure the US/Mexico border and to enforce immigration laws in the United States! It was part of a planned nationwide protest by open-borders activists!
Westward Report announced the plans that took place across the United States and the globe, as the pro-globalist, anti-borders groups continued to vow to end nations! They wrote...
A large protest set to take place Friday, July 12, from 7 to 9 p.m. outside the immigrant detention facility in Aurora is expected to draw more than a thousand people.
“We want to close down the detention center, and we want them to release these immigrants to their families or sponsors,” says protest organizer Patty Lampman. The facility in Aurora is run by private prison company GEO Group through a contract with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
The demonstration is tied to a worldwide call to action known as Lights for Liberty; as of July 8, 626 Lights for Liberty protests have been planned across the globe, including hundreds in the U.S. and in at least 25 countries. At 9 p.m. at each location, protesters will simultaneously light candles or shine their cell phones.

The radical, left-wing hate-filled activists pulled down the U.S. flag at the Aurora ICE facility and replaced it with the Mexican flag Friday outside the Immigration and Customs Enforcement building in Aurora, Colorado, part of a national protest against the Trump administration.
The Washington Times reported…
A crowd estimated at more than 1,000 rallied to protest the possible federal roundups of some illegal immigrants outside the detention facility, where some protesters broke through a barrier and upended the flags, according to local news outlets.
The American flag was eventually run back up the flagpole, but upside down and spray-painted with the words, “Abolish ICE,” as shown in video and photos.
The Lights for Liberty demonstrations were held Friday in cities nationwide, including Houston, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York City, San Antonio and Seattle.
The Washington Times also noted that the Lights for Liberty coalition proudly retweeted a picture of the Mexican flag that was raised in place of the American flag, as well as, the American flag which they lowered, defaced with the words “abolish ICE” spray-painted across the American flag, and then raised back up the flag pole, defiled and disgracefully upside down! They pointed out that the Lights for Liberty coalition includes groups such as the ACLU Texas, immigration groups, and labor unions!
Fox News reported…
However, according to numerous reports, the attack on the Aurora, Colorado ICE facility was just the tip of the iceberg, as the left, coordinated by labor unions, the ACLU, Globalist and Marxist ideologues, while being encouraged by the now radicalized left-wing Socialist Democrat party, violence has broken out at ICE and immigration facilities across the nation!
In fact, one radical leftist who participated in one of the attacks on a Tacoma, Washington ICE facility arrived packing heat and incendiary bombs, as well as, launched an all-out assault on the facility!
The Seattle Times reported:
Tacoma police said they shot at an armed man early Saturday who was attacking the Northwest Detention Center, the holding facility in Tacoma for federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The man died at the scene.
Around 4 a.m., officers responded to an ICE employee’s report of a man armed with a rifle and throwing home-made incendiaries at the building and vehicles in the detention center’s parking lot, as well as attempting to ignite a propane tank, according to Tacoma police. Officers say they saw the man wearing a satchel and holding flares, as well as the rifle.
Officers reported “shots fired,” police spokeswoman Loretta Cool said, at which point the officers had fired; she did not know whether the man also fired.
The man reportedly set a vehicle on fire with the homemade incendiary bombs that he was throwing! Police officers responded to the incident around 4 a.m. and called out to the man before shots were fired.
Four different police were involved in the shootout with the unhinged leftist! Therefore, it is unclear who made the fatal shot, at this point! Regardless, one thing was clear, as a result of the incident! The hate, threats, fear, and divisiveness, stemming from the radical leftist from organizations like the ACLU, Open Border Advocates, Labor Unions, and Democrats themselves, are not only encouraging such hate-driven and violent actions but they are inciting such hate-driven actions! In fact, Democrats such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi all verbally attacked and demonized ICE agents over the past few weeks and even instructed illegal aliens on how to evade the agents. Furthermore, it is that very demonization of ICE and Border Patrol agents that has directly led to such actions by left-wing lunatics!
An ICE spokeswoman reported that there were not any ICE officers or employees injured!
GEO Group, which runs the Northwest Detention Center, told the Associated Press that the baseless accusations about how detainees are treated at their facilities…
“have led to misplaced aggression and a dangerous environment for our employees, whose safety is our top priority. Violence of any kind against our employees and property will not be tolerated. We are thankful for the quick and brave action by the Tacoma Police Department, which prevented innocent lives from being endangered.”
In addition, the GEO Group revealed that, despite the left-wing accusations from Democrats and leftist activists, the detention center in Tacoma has modern amenities with air conditioning, recreational activities, medical care, and a bed for every individual.
In addition to Aurora, Colorado and Tacoma Washington, there was other violence against ICE facilities and officers around the nation, as the radical left pushes to demonize law enforcement in America!
Breitbart News reported…
Police in Phoenix arrested 16 people during a protest against U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The protesters are charged with unlawful assembly and obstructing a public thoroughfare. Two people also face charges of aggravated assault on a police officer.
Protesters rallied in the street in front of the Phoenix ICE office about 8:30 p.m. The rally assembled on public streets and the light-rail tracks, AZCentral reported. Police officials declared the rally to be an unlawful assembly and ordered protesters out of the streets.
Many of those attending the rally remained on the sidewalk while others allegedly blocked traffic and shut down the light-rail system in the area.
Phoenix Police Sergeant Mercedes Fortune reported charges for unlawful assembly and obstruction a public thoroughfare were filed against the following: (List from AZCentral.com)
- 29-year-old Ian Larkin
- 29-year-old Redeem Robinson
- 62-year-old Jorge Soria
- 29-year-old Angeles Maldonado
- 23-year-old Andrea Bailey
- 29-year-old Sofia Dancel
- 27-year-old Jose Conchas
- 22-year-old Lerman Montoya
- 38-year-old Phil Martinez
- 24-year-old Amanda Benjamin
- 23-year-old Samuel Torres
- 20-year-old Kaelen Ebata
- 22-year-old Jessica Bristow
- 27-year-old Annestello Pedreiro
- 21-year-old Jakob Beskind
- 34-year-old Jamaar Williams
Sgt. Fortune said Beskind and Williams also face charges of aggravated assault on a police officer after they allegedly attempted to prevent officers from arresting other suspects.
The local newspaper reported that more than 100 people took to the streets of Phoenix Friday night to protest the “planned roundup of undocumented migrants” by ICE officers. The targeted arrest of migrants with final orders of removal is rumored to begin on Sunday.
By 8:30 p.m., protesters began filling the streets and blocking traffic following a 90-minute rally at a local church. By 10:30 police moved in and threatened to arrest those who continue to obstruct the flow of traffic.
Already, this past week, Democrats held a Congressional hearing on Friday, during which former ICE director Tom Homan vehemently defended law enforcement as Democrat Politicians leveled hateful accusations against the organization! After having his character assassinated by the radical leftists on the committee, Homan got choked up said…
“As a 34-year veteran of law enforcement, it is shocking, shocking to see constant attacks against those that leave the safety and security of their homes every day, put on a Kevlar vest and put a gun on their hip and risk their own safety to defend this nation.”
Regardless, the left-wing Democrats called for the restrictions of federal funding for ICE, while some even called for the abolishment of the agency outright. For example, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) said on Thursday that she and her colleagues support defunding ICE, while Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, (D-NY) accused ICE of “killing innocent children,” as well as, tried to block funding, and has called for the abolishment of ICE as well!
The Gateway Pundit reported…
The man killed in Saturday’s terror attack on an ICE contract detention facility in Tacoma, Washington has been identified as Willem Van Spronsen, a man with a record of attacking police during a protest at the facility a year ago. Antifa activists are claiming the attacker as one of their own.
Sadly, they also revealed that Antifa members see his death as ‘the first death in their attempt to liberate “Gestapo” camps, in which Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was the first to label and compare the detention facilities to those of the Nazi Concentration camps!
And then, another who celebrated his violent attack on ICE Police Officers…
Another left-wing nut-job called him a martyr…
Sadly, it is only the beginning, as the Democrats continue to encourage hate, violence, and demonization of those who fight to defend the Constitution of the United States and the rule of law!
