A man lashed out at customers and employees at a New York restaurant on Wednesday for speaking Spanish, threatening to call Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
Video posted to Facebook captured the incident at a Fresh Kitchen in Manhattan.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Your staff is speaking Spanish to customers when they should be speaking English,” the man says, pointing toward an employee.
“Every person I listen to — he spoke it, he spoke it, she’s speaking it. This is America!” he says.
“My guess is they’re not documented, so my next call is to ICE to have each one of them kicked out of my country,” he continued. “If they have the balls to come here and live off of my money — I pay for their welfare, I pay for their ability to be here — the least they can do is speak English.”

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio responded to the incident with a Twitter post, writing, “New York City’s diversity is our strength. It’s what makes this city great. The 8.6 million people who call this city home speak more than 200 languages – they’re all New Yorkers and they’re all welcome here.”

One Twitter user responded to the story with a call for mandatory e-Verify.
He is absolutetly correct. All ICE needs to do is go to Home Depot. Illegals hang out there waiting for contractors to hire them. I work for a company that does e-verify. It should be mandatory for ALL businesses.
