As reported Friday by NBC Washington:

The incident happened at Andy’s restaurant in Lovettsville, Virginia. The Latina woman, who NBC Washington said wished to remain anonymous and was with family from Guatemala, explained what happened to the local outlet:

“She asked for passports, She said that she knew everybody in Loudoun County to get us out of here, and she started saying that we were supposed to speak English, but I’m like ‘we’re not talking to you,’They’re here visiting and they don’t know English, so how do you want them to speak English when they’re here just visiting?”

Local Telemundo did a Spanish-language report about the video:

Just another example of a problem that continues. Do we even have to bring up other examples?
