Biden heckled by ‘Abolish ICE’ protesters and teases immigration action in ‘5 days’


President Biden was heckled Thursday by immigration protesters who chanted “Abolish ICE” at a drive-in rally near Atlanta — and he responded by appearing to tease a development on the issue in “five days.”

Two men unfurled an orange banner near Biden’s stage in Duluth, Ga.

“End detention now! End detention now!” one man bellowed.
