She Knocked A MAGA Hat Off His Head…Then She Got Hit With A Full Blast Of ICE
Not that I would ever recommend that someone do anything illegal, but if you were going to do something illegal and you haven’t been caught for it you shouldn’t make a practice of drawing attention to yourself.
For example, about ten or twelve years ago there was a woman that got pulled over for some nominal traffic violation.
By the end of the day she was in custody for a prison escape that occurred in the 1970s when she was barely into her twenties.
She ended up assuming someone else’s identity and lived under the radar for thirty years raising a family and with her husband not even knowing about her previous life. The reason, she kept her mouth shut.
That being said there are some people that just don’t know when to keep their mouths shut.
Assaulting someone over their hat is a crime, but bragging and seeking media attention for doing it while you’re in the country illegally seems particularly unwise.
Rosiane Santos was recently arrested for after assaulting a Trump supporter who was wearing a “MAGA” hat inside a Mexican restaurant in Falmouth, Massachusetts. Even employees of the restaurant confirmed that Bryton Turner had simply ordered food before he was accosted by Santos.
“Santos started yelling at him because of his hat, which bears the theme that President Donald Trump campaigned on,” Boston news station WFXT explained. “The woman is seen walking behind him and hitting his hat off his head.”
Even after being arrested, Santos claimed that simply being an immigrant allowed her to attack Turner.
“(B)eing discriminated for so many times in my life, I just had to stand up for myself,” she said in a phone interview with WFXT. “He’s not a victim. I am the victim. I have been bullied, OK?”
Going after someone because of a campaign hat and then drawing attention to herself on the news wasn’t a very wise choice. It turns out that Santos is from Brazil, and now the U.S. government says she was living in the United States illegally.
“The woman who was charged with confronting a man wearing a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat inside a Falmouth Mexican restaurant is now in ICE custody,” WBZ-TV reported on Tuesday.
Her attention-seeking stunt definitely worked, but it will likely get her a one-way ticket out of the country.
“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 the local CBS News affiliate.
“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.”
For his part, Turner told WBZ-TV that the entire incident could have been avoided if the woman had simply respected other people’s right to wear hats or hold opinions she might not agree with.
