Man threatens to call ICE on workers speaking Spanish in NYC

Man threatens to call ICE on workers speaking Spanish in NYC

He's speaking it, she's speaking it.

In the video, posted to Twitter by activist Shaun King, the man points to people behind the counter and complains, "Every person I listen to-he spoke it, he spoke it, she's speaking it".

The videotaped portion of Schlossberg's volcanic tirade began with the lawyer lecturing the store manager about bilingual workers speaking in Spanish.

In a moment of fury, another client started recording with her cellphone and later published the video with the message: "Just experience what America is becoming!"

He later stressed that since Schlossberg was a customer, he as manager "had to stay professional and ask him to leave". If you love this country this much!

It happened at a Midtown Manhattan shop called Fresh Kitchen, according to NBC New York.

'I will be following up because my guess is there not documented and my next call will be to ICE, ' Schlossberg says. Once she and her friend placed their order in the language, she said he flipped out on the workers. "I put my camera down and said, 'You wanna call ICE, call ICE".

Customer Deena Suazo, 34, a local medical receptionist, said she had just ordered her lunch in Spanish when Schlossberg exploded. "At that moment, he threw his sandwich". The man then walked out. "First of all they wasn't talking to you". 'I will get each of them will be kicked out of my country. "He was completely off hinge".

In what appears to be an apparent reference to the incident, New York City's Mayor Bill de Blasio tweeted about diversity. Facebook user Edward Suazo wrote in his post. "The internet is going to have a field day".

"New York City's diversity is our strength. Do you feel big now?".

Ironically he has the chutzpah to brag on the firm's web site of being fluent in Spanish. It also claims he's a member of the New York State Bar, and if he is, it's news to them.

A Change.org petition demanding his disbarment had 2,100 signatures Wednesday night, while another online petition calling for discipline from the state bar association collected about 1,600 signatures.

Because we've not independently confirmed the identity of the man at this point, we're not naming him yet, but we're ready to assume he's a lawyer anyway just based on his smugly belligerent attitude.
