Protesters Replace U.S. Flag With Mexico Flag Outside ICE Facility

Erin Evans

This makes me so mad.

Hundreds of protesters gathered in Aurora on Friday evening to march to the ICE detention facility where illegal and undocumented immigrants are being housed.  They also removed the U.S. flag, replaced it with a Mexican flag, and spray painted graffiti on a Blue Lives Matter flag before it was seen flying upside down on the flag pole.

There’s a lot going on there, but I’m focused on the part where the protesters replaced the U.S. flag with the Mexican flag.

What is the endgame there?  What is the message?  If they’re saying Mexico is better than America, then the immigrants should be willing to stay there, or seek asylum there. If they don’t think America is that great, then why are so many people so desperate to come here?

I just don’t get it.
