The Mexican restaurant where Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was swarmed by protesters Tuesday in Washington, D.C., took no action to quell the protesters or ensure Nielsen’s safety, a manager told The Daily Caller News Foundation on Wednesday.
“We are not upset the protesters came here and we are not upset even if it was any of our staffers [who tipped off] the protesters,” the MXDC Cocina Mexicana manager, who refused to give his name, told TheDCNF. “We are happy about what happened.”
Police responded to the incident, USA Today reported. The manager also said that, to his knowledge, no one who worked at the restaurant contacted authorities when the protesters arrived, and that it may have been one of her security detail or another restaurant patron. “We don’t know who exactly contacted the police … we don’t know,” he said.
The manager, who has tan skin and long, grey, hair, expressed his gratitude for President Donald Trump’s Wednesday executive order mandating that families be kept together. Trump signed the rule in response to widespread backlash against families being separated at the southern border when crossing into the U.S. illegally.
“We are very happy about what happened this morning, today,” the manager said. “We are all Americans … if [anything that] happened affected … the decision of the president … we are proud.”
Nielsen was bombarded by socialist protesters who were tipped off that she was eating at MXDC, which was created by chef Todd English, on Tuesday night, according to Refinery29. Protesters yelled “Shame, shame” and “How do you sleep at night?” at Nielsen, who left the restaurant shortly after the protesters arrived.
