Anti-ICE protesters disrupted President Joe Biden at a drive-in car rally in Georgia Thursday.
Biden was only a few minutes into his speech before a group of protesters began shouting, “End detention now!” and “Communities, not cages!” and “Abolish ICE!”

“We’ll give you a microphone,” Biden said as the protesters kept shouting.
Biden tried to continue his speech, but the protesters continued to shout.
“I agree with you,” Biden replied. “I’m working on it. Give me another five days.”
“We voted for you!” some of them replied.
Eventually, staff arrived to escort the protesters out of the area.
“Folks, y’all know what they’re talking about,” Biden said. “There should be no private prisons, period. None. That’s what they’re talking about. Private detention centers. They should not exist and we’re working to close all of them.”
