Activists on the golden coast have taken a tall stand against Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
A group of activist artists in California scaled a billboard and made some creative edits to call out the Trump administration’s abhorrent practice of ripping children from their parents at the border only to toss them in cages.
A junk company in San Francisco’s Bay Area commissioned billboards featuring a surprised child bearing the slogan, “We make junk disappear.” The Mercury News reports that the activists reworked the text until it read, “We make kids disappear – I.C.E (video below).

A group called Indecline, a self-described “activist art collective,” took credit for the vandalized billboard online.
The group created a video which features three individuals, face obscured by masks, climbing the billboard to send the message that every American needs to get behind. The finished product was posted to the popular video hosting site Vimeo.
Though they kept their criticism focused on Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the group tagged the billboard in direct response to the Trump administration’s “zero-tolerance” policy at the border.
“Obviously it’s a hot topic right now and something we feel very strongly about,” one activist told The Mercury News.
Trump has since rescinded his own policy by way of an executive order he signed on Wednesday. In true Trump fashion, the EO was nothing but a photo-op and contains no directions for any substantive change in the treatment of migrants at the border.
Most importantly, it does not address the existing crisis of the near-impossible task of reuniting those families separated before the policy’s reversal. One activist pointed that out to The Mercury News when they noted that the policy “extends beyond immigration and into a humanitarian issue.”
Take a look at their video below to see the incredible message they sent to the world:
Oh, also, ICE must be abolished.
