The Louisville Courier Journal reports:
A group of protesters confronted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Bardstown Road in Louisville Saturday, calling out “Abolish ICE” and “No justice, no peace.”
The interaction was captured on video and shared with Courier Journal. In it, someone asks McConnell, “Where are the children? Where are the babies, MItch?” — an apparent reference to the separation of children from families at the southern U.S. border. “What are you doing to get the babies back?” someone asks in the clip.
McConnell, wearing a green shirt tucked into blue jeans, isn’t shown reacting or responding to the protesters. He walks past a sign for Bristol Bar & Grille, turns a corner and gets into a vehicle.
A group of Louisville residents, including several @DemSocialists members, had a message for Mitch McConnell as he left a local restaurant today. Powerful people like Mitch deserve no peace while they enable the imprisonment of babies in concentration camps. #AbolishICE pic.twitter.com/ruCXhbnKse
