Activists with the D.C. chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America crashed Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen's dinner Tuesday evening and appeared to chase her from the building.

According to a Facebook Live video posted to DSA's Facebook page, protesters surrounded Nielsen's corner table at MXDC Cocina Mexicana, located just a few blocks from the White House.
The activists chanted about Nielsen and the Trump administration's zero tolerance policy for illegal immigrants, called the DHS secretary a "fascist pig," and said they couldn't believe she had the "fucking gall" to eat at a Mexican restaurant while the administration is separating illegal immigrant families who seek to enter the country outside of certified ports of entry.
They also called for the complete abolition of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency at DHS.

D.C. police were eventually called to the scene.
It is not immediately clear if protesters drove Nielsen from the restaurant before her meal was completed, but a video of her leaving was posted to Twitter shortly afterward.
