The group of protesters who showed up at Kirstjen Nielsen's dinner call themselves the Democratic Socialists of America, and you haven't seen the last of them.
Secretary Nielsen was ran out of a Mexican restaurant while she was eating dinner by a group of protesters calling themselves Democratic Socialists of America. The group was tipped off by another diner at the restaurant, and within 45 minutes a dozen people had shown up to harass Nielsen. To make matters worse, one of the protesters works for the Justice Department.

DSA member Allison Hrabar, one of those who protested Nielsen on Tuesday, said that after intense coverage of suspected illegal immigrants being separated from their children, “it feels really good to confront people who are actually responsible, which is what we have a unique opportunity to do in D.C.”
Hrabar works at the Justice Department as a paralegal specialist, and said her activism was not part of her official work. She said she was exercising her First Amendment rights off the clock.
“If you see these people in public, you should remind them that they shouldn’t have peace,” she said. “We aren’t the only ones who can do this. Anyone who sees Kirstjen Nielsen at dinner, anyone who sees anyone who works at DHS and ICE at dinner can confront them like this, and that’s what we hope this will inspire people to do.”
The Democratic Socialists of America say they are focused on monthly visits to protest "deportation profiteers" at their D.C. area homes. The group has already protested two private prison officials, as well as an administration official. The group said they have a protest coming up July 1st in Virginia, which one member said would be targeting a Trump official.
