Dozens of people on Friday protested a New York lawyer who was filmed threatening to call immigration officials on people speaking Spanish in a Manhattan restaurant.

More than 100 people gathered outside the home of Aaron Schlossberg, with a Mariachi band and free tacos featured at the protest, The New York Post reported.

Protestors chanted “Hablamos Español!” and “Ole, Ole! Throw him out!”


A GoFundMe had raised $1,094 to send a Mariachi band and taco truck to his building after his threats to call Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on people speaking Spanish went viral.

Schlossberg was also kicked out of his office space this week after his rant went viral.

"His actions are just not consistent with our community and rules and regulations," the president of the company that leased office space to Schlossberg told the New York Post. "It’s totally contrary to everything we believe in as a company and personally."

And a petition calling for Schlossberg to be disbarred has earned more than 26,000 signatures since Thursday.

In the viral video, Schlossberg suggests that Spanish-speaking employees at the Manhattan restaurant are likely immigrants in the country illegally, and threatens to report them to ICE. 

"My guess is they're not documented," Schlossberg said to one employee in the video. "So my next call is to ICE to have each one of them kicked out of my country."
