Your average fellow who takes a shot at someone wearing a MAGA hat is a motivated lefty whose agenda is ideological. But that’s not always true, as this case shows. For some, the stakes of reclaiming America from illegal aliens aren’t just political, they’re personal.
The woman who was charged with confronting a man wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat inside a Falmouth Mexican restaurant was taken into custody by ICE. The department said she was in the country illegally.
Police said Rosiane Santos walked by Bryton Turner as he was eating dinner at Casa Vallarta and knocked the hat off his head. She then allegedly confronted him verbally.
Turner recorded video showing some of the confrontation.
Falmouth Police charged Santos with disorderly conduct following the incident earlier this month. On Tuesday, ICE took her into custody.
“Deportation officers with ICE’s Fugitive Operations Team arrested Rosiane Santos, an unlawfully present citizen of Brazil, today near Falmouth, Massachusetts,” said ICE spokesman John Mohan.
Why would Santos, who wasn’t even her legally, think this was a good idea?
Might be the blue staters vocally asserting their sanctuary state privilege. Santos had been given a false sense of confidence by all the claims that ICE couldn’t operate in MA.
Turned out it could.
I wouldn’t assume that Santos is actually going anywhere.
Santos was later released from ICE custody. She has been ordered to appear before an immigration judge for removal proceedings.
The odds of her actually appearing aren’t great.
