Man to Spanish speakers at New York restaurant: 'My next call is to ICE'
#1
similar incident to the alberta one

https://www.cnn.com/2018/05/17/us/new-yo...index.html

(CNN)A man berated employees and customers for speaking Spanish in a New York restaurant, describing them as undocumented and threatening to call immigration officials in a rant captured on video.
The incident happened Tuesday at a Fresh Kitchen in Manhattan, according to Edward Suazo, who posted a video of the encounter on Facebook, saying his wife and her friend were the target of the man's anger.
The video starts with a man in a white collared shirt confronting employees and customers in the restaurant.

"Your staff is speaking Spanish to customers when they should be speaking English," the man says, holding a white iPhone and pointing at the Spanish speakers for emphasis.



"Every person I listen to: He spoke it, he spoke it, she's speaking it. This is America!" he says.

Someone in the background interrupts him and calls him ignorant. Others hurl expletives at him.
"Yeah, this is America. So ignorant," another person tells him as laughter breaks out.
Bystanders act
The man continues to express his displeasure to an employee and threatens to call Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials.
"My guess is they're not documented. So my next call is to ICE to have each one of them kicked out of my country," he says.
"If they have the balls to come here and live off my money, I pay for their welfare. I pay for their ability to be here. The least they can do ... is speak English."

He then tells the employee, "If you intend on running a place in Midtown Manhattan, your staff should speak English. Not Spanish."
A woman tries to engage the man just before he walks out. He turns around and says, "Honey, I'm calling ICE."
"Call ICE!" the woman shoots back. Before leaving, he tells the woman, "Maybe you shouldn't eat that sandwich, take a break from the food."
The woman yells back, "Maybe you should get hit by a car," as the man storms out of the restaurant.
A woman who did not want to be identified told CNN affiliate PIX11 News that she's the one challenging the man in the video. She said she called police to report a public disturbance, but the man had left.
'What a big man'
In a Facebook post, Suazo said his wife and her best friend were talking to a waiter in Spanish when the man butted in and angrily demanded that they speak English.
"What a big man talking down to couple of women and a helpless employee," he posted. "I wish someone tells me I can't speak in my native language! First of all they (weren't) talking to you."
CNN has reached out to Suazo to get more details. His video had been viewed 4.4 million times by early Thursday, with some identifying the man as a lawyer with an office near the restaurant.
CNN has called and left messages at the law office the man apparently owns but has not heard back. After the incident, people inundated the law firm's social media accounts with messages. Local tabloid New York Daily News featured an image of the man on its front page of Thursday's edition.

In an email, Fresh Kitchen said the store is a public area for breakfast and lunch and welcomes everyone from all types of cultures.
Everyone has a mind of his own, the company said, "But in (a) public area, disturbing others or making (a) comment like that is not right at all."
In what appeared to be a reference to the incident, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio tweeted that the city's strength was its diversity.
"It's what makes this city great. The 8.6 million people who call this city home speak more than 200 languages -- they're all New Yorkers and they're all welcome here," de Blasio said Wednesday.

I don't know, this is a complete mystery to me.

Maybe it is just frustrating if you are the type of person who enjoys eavesdropping on strangers conversations.

Laugh Laugh

One activist seeking to troll Schlossberg set up a GoFundMe page to raise money to send a Mariachi band and taco truck to his office. The page has raised $1,094 of its $500 goal and credits Twitter account “ALT-Immigration,” an immigration activist account, with the idea.

I was going through the tweets and one was showing about how people are going and intentionally giving bad reviews of his business. One guy even wrote saying "I was his college roommate, at night he used to eat his own feces and would say I do it for the flavour" ???


umm, now correct me if I'm wrong but couldn't he sue this guy for defamation or something for posting something that is most likely a lie?

Yeah, I don't have any sympathy for this piece of shit, and it would appear the guy is already living in a hell of his own making.  I mean, for a person that hates immigrants and non-English speakers this vehemently, New York would be absolute torture every day of his life I imagine.  Why doesn't he move to Montana or something?

I do like how he assumes that if someone isn't white or speaks anything other than English they're an illegal alien, though. What a douche.....
