President Joe Biden’s speech at a drive-in rally on Wednesday was interrupted by a group of protesters shouting for the president to “end detention now.” The shouts from the protesters allude to ending detention centers and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement. As the chant began to grow louder, Biden said to them, “we’ll give ya a microphone,” according to a CBS Twitter post.

While Biden began to thank the voters of Georgia, more shouts started to pour in from the group of protesters. One shouted, “abolish ICE” another yelled out, “our families are dying.” Biden, taken aback, took a moment, then said, “I agree with you … I’m working on it, man. Give me another five days.”

“Folks, you all know what they’re talking about. There should be no private prisons, period … none, period. That’s what they’re talking about, private detention centers. They should not exist and we are working to close all of them, I promise you,” Biden said.

Eventually, the protesters were escorted out, according to The Hill.

One week into his presidency, Biden signed an executive order calling for the Justice Department to end its dependence on private prisons. Progressives have been pressuring the president to end detention centers used to detain migrants who entered the country illegally.
