    Hi, I am Marini from Australia. Can you please tell me what does "to take an issue with" means?

    The full sentence is : Left wing activist Ivan Molloy takes issue with the detention centre protesters.

    THank you very very much for your attention. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

    Cheers, Marini

    And notice that the idiom is 'take issue with'-- no 'an' or other article or determiner.
