Videos: Violent Anti-Trump Protesters in Austin Wave Latino Flags as They Block Traffic

Not an American flag to be seen in videos of a violent protest in Austin, Texas Saturday night against the recent ICE raids and the immigration policies of President Donald Trump and Governor Greg Abbott. Flags from several Latin American countries were strung together and held across a major intersection by protesters blocking traffic. A similar protest was held the night before at the same intersection.

A couple motorists blocked by the protesters got out of their cars to complain, only to be attacked and forced back into their cars. One driver returned on foot and after heated words were exchanged a brawl broke out.

There were also signs seen in the mob with the same profane message for President Trump from supporters of illegal aliens.
