Protesters say they will occupy Colorado sidewalks Friday afternoon to take a stand against immigration enforcement.
Immigration reform group Indivisible says in a statement it will have its members on 31 street corners across Colorado during Friday's afternoon commute period.
The group is calling for Congress to "defund hate" by cutting funding for Immigration and Customs Enforcement as well as Customs and Border Protection.
“We will bring a sense of urgent visibility to an ever-growing crime against humanity by demanding financial divestment from ICE, CBP and private organizations that profit from the inhumane and illegal detention of those who look to the United States to walk in integrity and live by our national values,” said Kelly Wilson, a member of Indivisible Front Range Resistance.
An ICE contractor operates an immigrant detention facility in Aurora.
Colorado's protests are part of a national movement with 150 events planned in 31 states this week.
