The Democrat-sponsored harassment of Republican officials continues unabated.
On Tuesday, a group of illegal immigration supporters confronted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his wife, Elaine Chao, as they were leaving an engagement at Georgetown University.
The group somehow managed to just waltz right up to the senator’s SUV, surrounding the couple as they tried to leave, and repeatedly shouted at them.
“Why are you separating families, huh?” one protester demanded. “Why are you separating families?”
Another shouted repeatedly, “How does he sleep at night?!”

Others played audio of crying children in a misguided attempt to argue against the administration’s current “zero tolerance” policy of enforcing the law at the southern border.
Chao was having none of it, dishing it back to the illegal immigration supporters with an equal fervor.
“Why don’t you leave my husband alone!” she shouted. “You leave my husband alone.”

How is it even possible that this group, considering the political atmosphere at this time, was able to just walk right up to the vehicle of a sitting senator, the Senate Majority Leader no less, without any form of security stepping in to stop them?
This isn’t an unknown issue. Maxine Waters, a very high-profile Democrat, has repeatedly called for supporters to harass and incite violence against members of the Trump administration in recent days.
Liberal protesters have already engaged in multiple instances of harassment against Republican women including Flordia Attorney General Pam Bondi, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.
Chalk up another woman falling victim to the harassment in Chao, the Department of Transportation Secretary.
Ironically, and surely unbeknownst to these supporters of illegal immigration, Chao used the immigration system properly and legally when she came to America at the age of eight.
She would go on to become the first Asian American woman and the first Chinese American in U.S. history to be appointed to a President’s Cabinet – a true American immigration success story.
