Activists Confront DHS Secretary During Dinner at Mexican Restaurant

Activists with the Metro D.C. branch of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) confronted Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen as she ate dinner at a Mexican restaurant in Washington on June 19.

The activists called for the abolition of the immigration policy that separates children and parents seeking asylum at the US border. “We will not stand by and let Secretary 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,” said Margaret McLaughlin of the DSA.
