Pro-Palestinian protesters interrupted First Lady Jill Biden’s campaign event for her husband, President Joe Biden, over the weekend in the competitive state of Arizona.

“Jill, when are you and the president going to call for a ceasefire in Gaza?” one demonstrator shouted at the Tucson event.

Other attendees appeared to pull at the woman to get her to leave the premises before security eventually removed her, according to a video posted online.

The Washington Examiner noted further: “Joe Biden has increasingly encountered Pro-Palestinian demonstrations amplifying calls for a ceasefire and hostage exchange almost five months after Hamas’s Oct. 7 terrorist attacks. Last week, more than 100,000 Michigan Democrats, organized by the state’s large Arab and Muslim community, marked themselves as “uncommitted” instead of supporting the president in their primary. Biden on Friday previewed the possibility of a six-week ceasefire, which will permit humanitarian aid ‘to the entire Gaza Strip, not just the south.’”

“In the coming days, we are going to join with our friends in Jordan and others in providing airdrops of additional food and supplies into [Gaza] and seek to continue to open up other avenues into [Gaza], including the possibility of a marine corridor to deliver large amounts of humanitarian assistance,” Biden told reporters in the White House‘s Oval Office, where he mistakenly mentioned Ukraine instead of Gaza.

“In addition to expanding deliveries by land, as I said, we’re going to insist that Israel facilitate more trucks and more routes to get more and more people the help they need,” he added. “No excuses, because the truth is aid flowing to Gaza is nowhere nearly enough now — it’s nowhere nearly enough. Innocent lives are on the line, and children’s lives are on the line.”

Jill Biden was on a four-day campaign tour for her husband, with stops in Arizona, Nevada, Georgia, and Wisconsin.

She will make more appearances, along with Vice President Kamala Harris and Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff, after Joe Biden gives the State of the Union Address next week — all of which is liable to lead many voters to ask why he isn’t hitting the campaign trail himself.

Meanwhile, the union representing the U.S. Border Patrol chided and mocked President Joe Biden after he visited a sector in Texas last week that does not get a lot of illegal migrant activity.

Biden’s Brownsville visit drew the ire of the nation’s premier border protection service as the union appeared to characterize the trip as window dressing in an election year as illegal immigration shoots to the top of the list of concerns among a majority of Americans.

“Board AF1, take nap. Wake up in place called Brownsville,” the group wrote on the X platform in a joking about Biden’s itinerary. “Read large teleprompter message, ‘It’s all Trump’s fault.’ Board AF1, ask who people in green uniforms were, told they ‘strap’ illegal aliens, express horror, take nap. Wake up, call a lid, hit beach, take nap.”

During Biden’s border visit, he blamed Republicans in Congress for failing to get on board an immigration reform bill he said would give him the authorities he needs to implement stricter enforcement. He also blamed former President Trump.

“The majority of Democrats and Republicans in both houses support this legislation,” Biden said in Brownsville, “until someone came along and said don’t do that that’ll benefit the incumbent. That’s a hell of a way to do business in America for such a serious problem.”

A majority of Republicans were against the bill because it would still allow up to 5,000 illegal migrants in the country daily while also providing tens of billions more in aid to war-torn Ukraine.
