Protesters doing the Lord’s work shouted:

“Aren’t you a mother, too?”

“How do you sleep at night?”

“Do you hear the babies crying?”

“If kids don’t eat in peace, you don’t eat in peace.”

“No borders! No walls! Sanctuary for all!”

Nielsen left the restaurant and jumped onto the back of a fire-breathing dragon and got the fuck out of town (fine, she got into an SUV).


“The irony isn’t lost on us that this is a Mexican restaurant,” the group posted on its Facebook page, CNN reports. “Nielsen has led the program to tear apart families. We are here to tell her to put an end to separating families, to step down as head of the department, and that ICE and CBP must be abolished.”

The group posted the video on its Facebook page and noted that they won’t allow Nielsen to have peace if migrant families don’t have the same peace.

“We will not stand by and let Sec. 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,” Margaret McLaughlin, a member of the Metro D.C. Democratic Socialists of America steering committee, said in a statement, CNN reports.
