Left-Wing Activists Force Homeland Security Secretary Nielsen From D.C. Restaurant

Left-wing activists forced Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen from a D.C. restaurant.

Nielsen was verbally abused and heckled by activists over the administration’s zero tolerance policy that results in migrant children separated from illegal alien parents at the U.S. Mexico border.

The Hollywood Reporter reports:

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s rough week got worse on Tuesday night after activists interrupted her dinner at a Washington D.C. Mexican restaurant and heckled her for her department’s controversial “zero tolerance” child separation immigration policy.

Nielsen was dining at MXDC when activists linked to the Democratic Socialists of America group walked over to her table and chanted slogans and called on her to abolish U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Video from the incident shows protestors shouting “Not in D.C. Not in the U.S.” and “In a Mexican restaurant of all places. The f***ing gall. Shame on you, fascist pig” as well as “no borders, no wall, sanctuaries for all.”

Homeland Security responded to the incident in a Tweet:

ABC News shared a video of the incident in a Tweet:

Left-wing activists are going to extreme measures to intimidate individuals that oppose their political views.

The increase in outrageous rhetoric and actions drowns out rational political debate making it much harder to resolve controversial political issues.
