Video from a grocery store in Philadelphia shows a white woman telling a Puerto Rican customer that she hopes “Trump deports” her after she heard her speaking Spanish.
The footage, reported by NBC 10 Philadelphia, shows an unidentified woman telling Johanny Santana she should be deported.
Santana recorded the woman’s racist rant as she waited in line at a store in Abington last week.
NBC 10 reports that “another woman began cursing because a grandfather and his young grandson were speaking Spanish, and the abuse only escalated from there, Santana said.”
“The boy comes back and asks another question [to the cashier] and that’s when the woman, who was next to me, started cursing,” Santana explained.
The video shows the woman telling Santana she should be deported.
“You shouldn’t be in this country,” she says, adding later, “I hope Trump deports you.”
The woman can be heard accused Santana of making her purchase with “drug money.”
“I was born here, you don’t belong here … go back to your own country,” the woman can be heard telling Santana. “You don’t belong here, you came here illegally. You should be deported.”
People who are born in Puerto Rico are legal U.S. citizens.
Hate crime reports in the U.S. increased by 17% between 2016 and 2017, according to the latest figures from the FBI.
