A woman and her young daughter were seen pan handling for food money when another woman approached and threatened to call ICE. Just like the lawyer who made the same threat to two workers speaking Spanish, BBQ Becky, who called the police on a black family that was BBQing and Permit Patty, who called officers on a black child selling water, this ridiculousness was caught on camera by a passerby.
Maria J. Navarro posted the video she captured after confronting the woman. The two exchanged words,, and Navarro said in her post:
I cannot believe I just witnessed this shit in LA! Another racist woman about to call ICE on a poor mother trying to get money just to feed herself and her daughter. Shame on this woman! Who is she?
A GoFundMe page has been started for the woman in the video, who was breast feeding at the time the other woman threatened to call ICE.
This racist woman was harassing an immigrant mother in Los Angeles & threatened to call ICE on her while she fed her daughter. She was harassing the mother because she wasn’t “from my country.” Shoutout to an ally, do your thing Twitter & expose her.pic.twitter.com/tLWXLy1kl3

People are definitely over this type of behavior and starting to wonder if there aren’t some similarities.
What’s up with these people who feel so emboldened?

Why do all those racist women look the same with those turned down mouths? Nasty women!

Mind your own business, #LatteLisa. Always trying to weaponize the police with your spare time.

•Los Angeles: A White American Woman saw a Brazilian woman and her baby on the street begging for money.
•Rather than help her, she tries to call ICE—until a Good Samaritan intervened.

I’m no FBI Behavior Analyst, but female police-calling racists seem to have similar profiles. ♀️

There was much praise for the Navarro for stepping in.
Kudos to the gal who stood up for the mother who was being harassed. If more of us do this it will be a deterrent to racists.

Thank you to those that stand up to these racists cowards. I love the fact the girl recording told her this was not her country; she left old girl speechless on that one.

People were particularly fond of the part when Navarro flips the script and tells the woman this isn’t her country and to go back to Europe.
White woman threatens to call ICE on a breastfeeding woman she assumes is an immigrant. Local hero starts recording and confronts the harasser: “This isn’t YOUR country. Go back to Europe. That’s where YOU'RE from.”

#GoBackToEurope needs to become a thing.

I laughed. Lol And then cried because, like Europe would take us back.

Don't clap. I'm european!! We don't want her here!

A white woman harasses a Brazilian immigrant & her child by threatening to call ICE. Says she's doing “Trump's work”. Instead of support, the offending white woman is told to “go back to Europe” & leave brown ppl alone.

We have to wonder when people are going to learn this behavior is unacceptable.
