A woman accused of attacking a man for wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat, while eating at a Mexican restaurant, is now in Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody because she is in the country illegally.
CBS Boston reported Rosiane Santos knocked the MAGA hat off of Bryton Turner and confronted him afterwards. Turner recorded part of the encounter on his phone.
“Deportation officers with ICE’s Fugitive Operations Team arrested Rosiane Santos, an unlawfully present citizen of Brazil, today near Falmouth, Massachusetts,” ICE spokesman John Mohan told CBS Boston. “Santos is currently facing local charges for assault and other offenses. She is presently in ICE custody and has been entered into removal proceedings before the federal immigration courts.”
“It’s just a hat at the end of the day,” Turner told the station. “I don’t really understand why people can’t just express themselves anymore, everybody has to get mad.”
In the video, Santos grabs the hat and pulls it over Turner’s face. She can also be heard cursing him out and calling him stupid. Police were on scene as the encounter unfolded.
