Anti-ICE Activists, Communists Protest Outside Home Of Detention Center Warden
Dozens of protesters, including members of Denver Communists and Abolish ICE Denver, demonstrated in front of a family’s home to protest illegal immigrant detention, leading to several arrests, newly released footage shows.
Opposition to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) took a personal turn for Johnny Choate, the GEO Group warden for an ICE processing center in Aurora, Colorado. Liberal activists associated with Denver Communists, Abolish ICE, and Antifa demonstrated in front of his house Thursday night.
There were dozens of protesters, estimated to be over 100, who descended upon Choate’s neighborhood. Their demonstration also drew around 50 counter-protesters who voiced support for Choate. Aurora police arrived to maintain security and usher the protesters away from the area. Three individuals were ultimately arrested, according to a statement from the Aurora Police Department.
