Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen Chased from Mexican Restaurant by Protestors Chanting 'Shame!'

Secretary of Homeland Security, Kirstjen Nielsen famous for “following orders,” pretending she isn’t doing things that she’s doing, and separating young children from their families, decided to have dinner at a Mexican restaurant. Yes. A Mexican restaurant. The Metro D.C. Democratic Socialists of America went live with their video and protestors, inside of the restaurant and proceeded to peacefully protest, and chant “Shame, shame, shame...”

The results were beautiful as Sec. Nielsen had to hurry away. Good. These people are monsters and deserve to be reminded of that fact. And here’s a PSA before you enjoy the video.

Reminder: This is what Kirstjen Nielsen looks like, in case she comes into the restaurant you're at and you want to ensure she can't eat a meal in peace while keeping kids in cages.

DHS Secretary Nielsen just got driven out of a Mexican restaurant here on 14th Street by activists. DSA, I believe.
