Hundreds of protesters in Colorado storm an an ICE facility ahead the agency’s scheduled deportation orders.

Reports Friday said protesters in Aurora removed the American flag from a pole at the facility, and flew the Mexican flag in its place.

Protesters also pulled down a “Blue Lives Matter” flag, painted the words “abolish ICE” on it, before raising it upside down.

The mayor of Denver, where arrests are expected to be made, has said his city has no intention of cooperating with the operations.

“We do not cooperate with ICE. As my grandma, Dolores, would say, ‘This ass-backwards policy of the White House is taking us backwards,'” Denver Mayor Michael Hancock said.

The protests were part of the event dubbed Lights for Liberty, which calls for detention centers to be closed, and immigrants be granted entry into the U.S.
