Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, who has been at the forefront of the Trump administration’s efforts to offer facts about the current border crisis amidst a deluge of misinformation, was trying to enjoy her dinner in peace at a Mexican restaurant in D.C. Tuesday night.
But a mob showed up with the intent of never letting her enjoy a peaceful meal in public again until she bows to their will. According to NPR, the bullies shouted “Shame!” repeatedly at her and demanded that “If kids don’t eat in peace, you don’t eat in peace.”
The agitators verbally assaulted her over her enforcement of a Bush- and Obama-era law that involves taking adults into custody for illegally crossing the border and providing separate housing for their children.
The protesters called her a “fascist pig” and a “villain” and demanded the abolishment of not only ICE but borders in general. Ironically, the protesters were members of the Metro D.C. Democratic Socialists of America group and didn’t seem to understand that socialism doesn’t work without borders.
“In a Mexican restaurant, of all places. The [expletive] gall. Shame on you. Shame, shame, shame, fascist pig!” one particularly rude woman said in the presence of dining families.
She didn’t seem to realize that most of the families seeking asylum at the border are not Mexican but come from countries further south in Central America. The socialists were so disruptive to Nielsen and the other diners at the restaurant that the Homeland Security secretary left.
Now the Daily Caller has verified that one of the activists is actually an employee of the U.S. Department of Justice named Allison Hrabar. When questioned about her involvement in the mob, Hrabar said she felt completely justified in what she was doing and believed that Nielsen and about 250,000 other people should be verbally assaulted wherever they go.
“If you see these people in public, you should remind them that they shouldn’t have peace. We aren’t the only ones who can do this. Anyone who sees Kirstjen Nielsen at dinner, anyone who sees anyone who works at DHS and ICE at dinner can confront them like this, and that’s what we hope this will inspire people to do,” Hrabar told the Washington Examiner.
The Justice Department has not publicly commented on Hrabar’s involvement. On Wednesday, President Trump signed an executive order, clarifying that immigration law would be upheld, that illegal alien families would be kept together when reasonable to do so, and that Congress needs to fix the flawed system.
