CO GOP calls on Dems to condemn protest outside home of Aurora ICE facility warden

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, CO – Recently Abolish ICE Denver, Denver Communists, and Denver Action Network announced they were planning a protest near the home of the Aurora ICE Processing Center’s Warden, Johnny Choate.

Abolish ICE and the other associated groups are the same organizations responsible for unlawfully desecrating an American flag and raising a Mexican flag outside the Aurora ICE facility in July.

The Aurora Sentinel published an editorial last week describing the planned protest as a “thinly veiled act of extortion and terrorism.”

In response to these developments, Colorado Republican Party Chairman Ken Buck released the following statement:

The planned protest outside Warden Choate’s home by extreme anti-ICE protesters goes beyond the pale. Groups like Abolish ICE have demonstrated they have little regard for the rule of law, and the threatening nature of this protest should be taken very seriously,” said Colorado GOP Chairman Ken Buck.

It should not be difficult for elected officials from either party to speak out against this blatant attempt to terrorize Mr. Choate, his family, and his neighbors,” Buck continued.

We hope Colorado Democrats will join us in speaking out forcefully against these anti-ICE radicals, and likewise encourage them to abandon this threatening ‘protest.’.”
