A Nevada man was caught on video while verbally harassing construction workers outside of his home, a local Fox affiliate reports. The man stormed outside and went on a racist rant because of a loud beeping coming from the construction site.
“Let me see your proof of citizenship!” the man can be heard yelling in the cellphone video recording. He then says, “I hope Trump wins and deports every one of those illegals.”
Donald Trump has made dangerous and racist blanket statements about undocumented immigrants over the course of his campaign. He suggested that Mexican immigrants are “criminals” and “rapists” upon announcing his campaign last June.
He said that they are bringing crime and drugs. He has discussed the creation of a new ICE “deportation force.” He said he would deport the 11 million people currently living in the U.S. without documentation.
And his rhetoric is spreading to Americans across the country. The Nevada man in the video targeted a construction worker named Jorge Tally who told FOX5, “I get out and work for my family, for my kids.”
He said, “We were immigrants, we were illegals, we were wetbacks, all the trash,” according to the man in the video before asking Tally for his papers. Are citizen immigration police forces what Trump had in mind?
When FOX5 visited the man in the video for a comment, he said “Just by looking at them you know god damn well they’re illegals, and the guy didn’t deny it.”
