AURORA, Colorado (CNN) — Dozens of people staged a protest outside the home of the warden of an Immigration and Customs Enforcement processing facility.

Video shows people chanting and holding signs that read “Close the Camps” in a residential neighborhood Thursday evening in Aurora, a suburb of Denver. Police in a riot gear can also be seen lining up in the middle of the street.

Aurora police arrested three men who were charged with obstruction, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

In a statement, the group which operates the Aurora facility issued a statement condemning the protests.

“We hope the community support and pushback from brave leaders opposing this dangerous idea will serve as a deterrent for any future protests targeting people in their family’s homes and neighborhoods,” the statement read. “These misdirected attacks and intimidation of our employees must stop and we encourage our local leaders to stand against these hateful tactics and push for a return to civil discourse.”
