Arrests made after Fourth of July flag-burning outside the White House Two protesters were arrested in front of the White House on the Fourth of July after an American flag was set on fire ahead of President Trump's "Salute to America" celebration, according to the U.S. Secret Service. The two were allegedly arrested for "burning an American flag outside the limits of a permit that had been issued by the National Park Service." The Secret Service told The Hill that one person was arrested for felony assault on a police officer and for malicious burning, and the other was arrested for obstructing a police investigation and resisting arrest.

Protesters took down an American flag outside of an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility in Colorado this week and replaced it with a Mexican flag, according to footage posted online.

Footage of a demonstration outside of the Aurora, Colo., facility posted Friday shows dozens of protesters cheering as a Mexican flag was raised on a pole in front of the building.

According to CBS News, hundreds of protesters demonstrated outside the facility on Friday to demonstrate against planned raids targeting undocumented immigrants that are expected to start on Sunday. ICE agents will launch massive targeting undocumented immigrants scheduled for deportation, in an operation that President Trump delayed weeks ago.

The demonstration was part of an effort organized on Facebook that was called "March to Close the Concentration Camps." The event was reportedly orchestrated under the Lights for Liberty coalition.

A description of the event on its Facebook page reads: "Join us as part of the national day of action to close the concentration camps. This is the kick-off of a national campaign to close the migrant and refugee camps in the United States. Calling on folks and groups from Denver, Aurora, Boulder, Longmont, and surrounding areas."
