NY lawyer threatens to call ICE on women for speaking Spanish

NY lawyer threatens to call ICE on women for speaking Spanish

A newly unearthed video of New York City attorney Aaron Schlossberg shows that he has been caught in the midst of hate-filled rants before.

In the video, the man assumes the people he overheard speaking Spanish are not legally in the country and threatens to call Immigration Customs and Enforcement. I pay for their welfare.

Now, Schlossberg is facing mounting backlash.

Schlossberg also didn't respond to a call and an email seeking comment. She said the angry customer lost it after the person ahead of him started ordering in Spanish.

A white man from MA posted a video of a man who appears to be Schlossberg berating him for being an "ugly [expletive] foreigner" two years ago when he encountered him on Fifth Avenue. The page also suggests that it will be sending a taco truck to Schlossberg as well.

Schlossberg's firm got so many comments that Yelp has an "active clean up alert" on the page as it does with any business that receives a wave of reviews for being in the news.

"The egregiousness of bold-faced racism, in all its ugliness, must be rejected and replaced with the kindness, solidarity and sense of togetherness that has made this great American experiment in democracy a shining example for all the world to see and admire for over two centuries", the political leaders wrote.

The footage shows a man, dressed in a white button-down shirt and gray slacks, berating an employee at the fast-casual eatery Fresh Kitchen in midtown Manhattan because the staff were speaking Spanish. Mr. Schlossberg is a member of the New York State Bar Association and is admitted to the following courts: New York State, Eastern and Southern Districts of New York, United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.

"He's screaming at the guy serving him, 'Give me my f***ing sandwich, you shouldn't be speaking Spanish, I feel disrespected, go back to your country, '" Serrano said. It was not clear when the incident took place.

In an update vlog, Morris reflected on "The Aaron Schlossberg Incident", and stated that what he'd experienced is something that happens to people of color on a daily basis.

"This is the first time I'm aware of something like this", he said.

The 44-year-old lawyer is also facing backlash from officials of the state of NY. In that case, Holtzman-who went on to become a U.S. Congresswoman and is now counsel at Herrick Feinstein-was cited under a NY rule of professional conduct that prohibits behavior that "adversely reflects" on a lawyer's fitness.

"My guess is they're not documented", Schlossberg said to one employee.

The social media furor turned up more instances of a man who appeared to be Schlossberg getting irate with others. "Another post includes his New York Bar registration number and the disciplinary committee's contact information".

The president added that the United States has the "dumbest immigration laws in the world".

The video went viral instantly, appearing on Gothamist before being picked up by BBC News, the New York Times, and USA Today.

Backlash to the video, which was posted on activist Shaun King's twitter account, was swift and fierce.

Willie Morris, a 34-year-old consultant and adviser for tech companies, said he recognized Schlossberg from an encounter on Manhattan's Fifth Avenue in October 2016.

She along with her friend could be heard challenging the man, calling him "ignorant". "I was waiting for Ashton Kutcher or someone to jump out and yell, like, 'Punk'd.'.Who acts like that toward people who you think aren't from here".

Adriano Espaillat (D-NY) announced that he and Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. This kind of blatant bigotry in the heart of the most diverse city in America is shameful.
