A woman of Brazilian heritage who made was charged with assault and battery of a Massachusetts man sporting a “Make America Great Again” hat inside a restaurant has been detained by, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials.
ICE officials incarcerated the women into custody after discovering that the woman was an illegal immigrant living in the country.
“Deportation officers with ICE’s Fugitive Operations Team arrested Rosiane Santos, an unlawfully present citizen of Brazil, today near Falmouth, Massachusetts,” said ICE spokesman John Mohan, a local CBS affiliate reported. “Santos is currently facing local charges for assault and other offenses. She is presently in ICE custody and has been entered into removal proceedings before the federal immigration courts.”
Falmouth Police said,
“they were called to the Casa Vallarta on Davis Straits Road at about 8 p.m. Friday where Bryton Turner had been minding his own business when Santos began to verbally assault him due to the MAGA hat he was wearing.”
“Turner began to record the incident with his phone saying, Ignorant people like this. I’m just trying to sit here, eat a nice meal. In the video, Santos can be seen walking up behind him and pulling the hat off his head. That’s the problem with America these days. People are just ignorant. They want to lash out on people who are educated, Turner said in the video.
Court documents show;
“when police asked Santos why she did it, she said it was because he supports President Donald Trump and she allegedly called Turner an expletive.”
Santos was arrested, her eyes were “bloodshot and glassy”. While walking her out of the bar, she allegedly hit Turner in the head. While at the police station, Santos refused to get out of the police cruiser telling one officer, “What are you going to do if I don’t?”
The Falmouth Police chief added;
“the incident is yet another example of political anger officials have seen in the last few days. Santos was released on her own recognizance. She’s scheduled to return to court for a pretrial hearing March 20.“
