Video: Democrat Socialists attack, harass DHS chief Kirstjen Nielsen at Mexican restaurant

On Tuesday, a group of radical socialist protesters interrupted Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s dinner at a Mexican restaurant in Washington, D.C., USA Today reported.

According to USA Today:

Members of the D.C. chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America entered MXDC Cocina Mexicana, a glitzy restaurant near the White House, to confront Nielsen as her department faces scrutiny over a policy that has resulted in some children being separated from their parents at the U.S-Mexico border.

“How can you enjoy a Mexican dinner as you’re deporting and imprisoning tens of thousands of people who come here seeking asylum in the United States?” protester Jesse Rabinowitz shouts in a video posted on Facebook appearing to show the incident. “We call on you to end family separation and abolish (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement).”

The group also chanted, “abolish ICE, “no borders, no walls, sanctuary for all,” “shame on you,” and “end Texas concentration camps.”

According to the report, Nielsen never acknowledged the group of protesters and left before police arrived.

The group later said in a Facebook statement:

“We will not stand by and let Secretary Nielsen dine in peace, while she is directing her employees to tear little girls away from their mothers and crying boys away from their fathers at our border,” said Margaret McLaughlin, a member of the Metro DC Democratic Socialists of America Steering Committee. “Secretary Nielsen and everyone else who has carried out these brutal and cold-blooded orders to rip apart families should never be allowed to eat and drink in public again. These barbarous acts must end and those at the helm must be held accountable. While Secretary Nielsen’s dinner may have been ruined, it is nothing compared to the horrors she has inflicted on innocent families.”

Twitchy said feminist Jessica Valenti applauded the protest but got confronted for doing so:
