The group of at least six students played ProPublica audio of migrant children caught up in the family separation crisis crying as they peppered the two with questions.

We confronted @SenateMajLdr and @SecElaineChao with @ProPublica audio of children separated from their families at the border while leaving a @Georgetown event. We must #AbolishICE & #AbolishCBP! #FreedomforImmigrantspic.twitter.com/ljv70F3F0L— Roberto (@Roberto62543651) June 26, 2018
One of the protesters, Roberto, took to Twitter to explain their side of the situation and called for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to be abolished.
We asked why they were separating families and Elaine L. Chao started yelling at us to leave her husband alone. My question is why they won’t leave our families, friends and communities alone?

And to be honest, I cannot fathom how these movers of racism, discrimination and hate sleep at night. Cabinet officials like Elaine Chao might not like to hear it but she and her husband bear responsibility and we won’t stop telling that truth everywhere they go. #AbolishICE— Roberto (@Roberto62543651) June 26, 2018
“I do think poor behavior is not a great way to convey your views,” the senator said, “but I do think everybody ought to have their fair say.”
