Katie Naranjo told KVUE that she and her husband built the nativity scene by hand, which features the baby Jesus in a cage with an ICE sign, referencing the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. Naranjo said Jesus was a refugee and the display is a protest of policies which have separated children from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border.

The couple hope the display will spark a discussion about immigration policy.

This is not the couple's first controversial holiday display. Last year, the couple depicted Trump as the Grinch, KTBC reported.

A church in Massachusetts also has baby Jesus in a cage for its nativity scene to protest the Trump administration’s immigration policies.
