McConnell Leaves Dinner Amid More ICE Heckling
By The Associated Press
LOUISVILLE - Faced with chants of "no justice, no peace" and a blaring recording of "Fight the Power," Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell abandoned his dinner at a Kentucky restaurant.

The Courier Journal reports the protesters Sunday opposed the government's immigration policy, and called for abolishing U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

McConnell faced similar protests outside another Louisville restaurant Saturday and at Georgetown University last month.

Four Pegs bartender Nick Hulstine says a trivia host told the bar's patrons McConnell was across the street at Sarino and used his speaker to disrupt McConnell's meal. Hulstine says Sarino's chefs yelled at protesters.

Occupy ICE confirmed its members confronted McConnell.

McConnell's spokeswoman declined to comment. The restaurant couldn't be reached for comment.

Louisville Metro police spokesman Dwight Mitchell says no one was arrested or cited.
