Democratic Socialists surrounded and harassed the DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen while she was out to dinner in Washington, D.C. with her family.
But it turns out that one of the people harassing her works for the Department of Justice.
From Daily Caller:
One of the activists who chased Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen out of a Mexican restaurant Tuesday night over the Trump administration’s immigration policies is an employee of the Department of Justice, The Daily Caller News Foundation has confirmed.
Members of the Washington, D.C., chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America crashed Nielsen’s meal with a demonstration full of chants and other outbursts.
One of those participants, Allison Hrabar, actually works for the Trump administration — as a paralegal in the DOJ.
“Kirstjen Nielsen, you’re a villain, locking up immigrant children,” activists can be heard saying in a video.
A fellow employee finked Hrabar out to the Daily Caller.
Hrabar defended her actions to the Washington Examiner. She claimed she wasn’t there during work time and was just exercising her First Amendment rights.
“If you see these people in public, you should remind them that they shouldn’t have peace,” she told The Examiner. “We aren’t the only ones who can do this. Anyone who sees Kirstjen Nielsen at dinner, anyone who sees anyone who works at DHS and ICE at dinner can confront them like this, and that’s what we hope this will inspire people to do.”
But her tweets @allisongeroi, written during work hours, revealed her bragging about the harassment and her part in it.
“Keeping families together in jail is not an acceptable solution,” Hrabar tweeted Wednesday afternoon at 1:56 PM.
Following the protest, Hrabar tweeted that, “No one who has ever made their living terrorizing immigrants deserves peace. If you see one in a restaurant, at a movie, or in your neighborhood, remind them of that.”
Hrabar seems to fit the often typical pattern of a socialist, white, well-off, graduate of a very expensive swanky college, Swarthmore, which charges their students over $50,000.
So what’s going to happen to Hrabar for harassing the DHS Secretary? That’s not protesting inside a restaurant that’s targeted harassment, as they themselves confess. She should have been arrested for disturbing the peace.
But the Justice Department isn’t talking about what, if anything, they will be doing about her, calling it a “personnel matter.”
Would be interesting to find out for whom she works in the Justice Department.
But it’s horrific that the DOJ which is supposed to be apolitical has been so compromised and it really needs an overhaul as this and so many other reports have shown.
