VIDEO | Sen. Mitch McConnell confronted by protesters in Louisville

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The same day hundreds of protesters on both sides of the immigration debate gathered in downtown Louisville, Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell was confronted as he left a local restaurant.

Occupy ICE activists have been camped out in "peaceful occupation" outside of Louisville's ICE office all week, protesting the Trump administration's immigration policies. 

Saturday morning, hundreds of people from Occupy ICE and the group the Three Percenters gathered in downtown Louisville around 8 a.m.

The protests ended peacefully and without incident around noon, just before a video was posted to Facebook showing Sen. McConnell heckled as he left a local restaurant.

As McConnell walked to a vehicle, a group of protesters gathered around his entourage chanting "vote you out," "abolish ice," "no justice, no peace," and "no comfort for fascists."

One protester can be heard telling McConnell they know where he lives.
