Pro-Trump Lawyer Has Meltdown When Deli Worker Speaks Spanish in NYC

Pro-Trump Lawyer Has Meltdown When Deli Worker Speaks Spanish in NYC

A white man, upset that employees at a NY breakfast restaurant were speaking Spanish, was recorded on Tuesday threatening to call agents from the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to detain the workers and otherwise ranting about the employees speaking a language other than English. So the least they could do is speak English. She and a co-worker were chatting with the staff in Spanish. "He started saying a lot of ugly words".

Serrano says a patron who was in the line before her ordered his food in Spanish and that appeared to agitate the man in the video. So my next call is to ICE to have each one of them kicked out of my country.

"Every person I listened to-he spoke it, he spoke it, she's speaking it", the man said.

Schlossberg gave $500 to President Trump's presidential campaign in 2016 according to records reviewed by The Forward.

Ironically he has the chutzpah to brag on the firm's web site of being fluent in Spanish.

INSIDER hasn't independently verified the man's identity and Schlossberg didn't respond to multiple requests for comment.

CBS2's call to the law office had not been returned Wednesday night. It's what makes this city great. "I'm gonna call the police because now I feel threatened, '" she said. Suazo, who has Puerto Rican roots, was rocked by the hate-fueled outburst. They said the cafe welcomes people from all cultures.

The United States does not have an official language.

Aaron Schlossberg is still facing more consequences.

"Your clients and your staff are speaking Spanish to staff when they should be speaking English.My guess is they're undocumented, so my next call is to ICE to have each one of them taken out of my country".

"This is America. Your staff should be speaking English, OK?"

The woman yells back, "Maybe you should get hit by a vehicle", as the man storms out of the restaurant.

The incident occurred around lunchtime on May 15 at a Fresh Kitchen in Midtown, the New York Daily News reports.

"It's no big deal", agreed Suazo, a regular at the restaurant. "I just looked at him and said, "You're very ignorant, '" she said".

After activist and journalist Shaun King posted the video to Twitter, activists identified the man as Aaron Schlossberg, an attorney with his own law firm with an office near the restaurant.
