It was an awkward moment when President Joe Biden tried to get past loud protesters interrupting his rally by telling them that he agreed with their cause, but they continued until they were kicked out.
President Biden’s rally to mark his 100th day in office was interrupted as soon as it began by protesters calling for an end to detention centers and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
Protesters were mad – but of course, Joe tried to fluff it off.
Biden made a plea with the unruly crowd – asking them to give him another “5 days” to fix his humanitarian crisis at the border.

What is this man even talking about?
Excerpt from THE BLAZE reports:
The protesters were escorted out of the car rally and Biden continued with his speech. Biden later clarified to reporters that he was “teasing” the protesters about taking action within five days.
Biden has proposed a pathway to citizenship for the millions of illegal aliens in the U.S., but he has faced criticism from the left for the continued deportations and increased detainments at the border since he assumed office.
A poll from 2018 showed that Americans are against abolishing ICE by more than 2 to 1. The Rasmussen poll found that 55% of Americans did not want ICE abolished while only 25% said they did support the extreme policy.
The protesters were apparently escorted out, but clearly, his base is not all a bed of roses, and they’re pushing and pushing Joe further to the radical Darkside.
It’s unclear if Biden is preparing executive action on the issue, but he signed an order a week into his presidency directing the Justice Department to end its reliance on private prisons. Still, he has been pressed by progressives to end the use of detention centers for immigrants who entered the country illegally.
