'I'm Gonna F*cking Shoot Him': Listen to the Chilling Voicemail One Journalist Received After Reporting on Immigration

The Right Wing

Reporter Jonathan Lai for the Philadelphia Inquirer released a voicemail he received following a piece about legal representation for immigrants facing deportation.

The content was chilling in its violence and outright hatred.

"Who the f*ck do they think they are?" the caller said. "This is our tax dollars. These f*cking people don't have no f*cking right here. Ok? You're taking our fucking money and throwing it to these f*cking clowns."

The message got even worse toward the end.

“You know what, when I see one I'm gonna f— shoot him, because they don't belong here. Okay? That's what they should be done, they should be shot, they’re illegal invaders.”
