Immigrant activists shout McAleenan off stage

Chants like, "when immigrants are under attack, stand up fight back" interrupted McAleenan numerous times on Monday (October 7) during his address at Georgetown Law.

After a few attempts to continue speaking over the protesters' voices, McAleenan walked off the stage.

U.S. President Donald Trump has made cutting legal and illegal immigration a centerpiece of his presidency.
