President heckled in Texas

AUSTIN, Texas (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The president was in Austin, Texas Thursday, discussing current immigration issues.

At the event two Hispanic men stood on their chairs and started shouting.

The president tried to ignore them, but then called them out directly.

"Sit down guys, I'm on your side, we'll talk about it later, I promise, alright. So, look, here's what we can do: we can do so much more - no, you don't have to escort them out, they'll sit down, I promise I'll talk to ya afterwards," said President Obama.

It was first time in his presidency that the Secret Service stood down.

Police were also called.

According to a White House press pool report, White House staff escorted the protesters behind the stage immediately after the president's speech was over.
