EMERYVILLE, Calif. -- Under the cover of darkness, a group of Bay Area artists have altered a massive billboard on one the region's busiest stretches of highway, CBS San Francisco reports. The billboard is delivering a condemnation of President Trump's immigration policies.

The billboard once read: "We make junk disappear" -- an advertisement for a junk removal firm.

But the artists altered it overnight to read: "We make kids disappear," signed "ICE."

The billboard is located in Emeryville and faces an area where several hundred thousand commuters drive each day on their way into San Francisco.
