Heckled during speech

25 Nov, 2014

Hecklers interruptObama President Obama several times while he gives his immigration policy speech in Chicago. The hecklers are comprised of four or five women, including one who was seated on the stage behind Obama. Though signs are banned from the event, the woman holds up a fabric banner regarding deportation policy. President Obama addresses the hecklers and continues with his speech.

OK, it’s good to be back in Chicago. But I’m not going to be able to have a conversation with each of you separately. There are other ways of engaging. Just sit down…. I know people are passionate about this. But be respectful of people who are here.
