First, they drove her out of a Mexican restaurant, now people are protesting against Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen at her Virginia home by blasting out audio of crying immigrant children on her street. HuffPost editor Philip Lewis tweeted video from the scene, saying: “Protesters are outside of DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s Alexandria townhouse, playing audio of the detained children. She appears to be still be home.” Nielsen has taken the brunt of criticism for defending the Trump administration’s forced-separation policy, which provoked fury and international condemnation this week. Lewis reports the crowd was chanting “No justice, no sleep!” and “Free the kids!” and photos showed demonstrators holding signs branding Nielsen a “child snatcher.” Nielsen was driven out of a Mexican restaurant Wednesday in Washington, D.C. by protesters.
