*Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen had the nerve to dine at a Mexican restaurant Tuesday night after spending several days defending her department’s horrific “zero tolerance” child separation immigration policy at the Mexico border.
Obviously, her dinner was cut short by protesters.
Nielsen was dining with a companion at MXDC when activists linked to the Democratic Socialists of America swarmed her table chanting slogans and called on her to abolish U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
Video from the incident shows protestors shouting “Not in D.C. Not in the U.S.” and “In a Mexican restaurant of all places. The f**king gall. Shame on you. fascist pig” as well as “No borders, no wall, sanctuaries for all.”

After several minutes, Nielsen and her security detail left the restaurant to chants of “shame! shame! shame!” – straight outta Game of Thrones.

Nielsen and DHS have faced a huge public backlash over the “zero tolerance” policy to prosecute all people crossing the border illegally. However, her boss, Donald Trump, tweeted his support for Nielsen on Tuesday, writing that she was doing a “fabulous job.”
