While most people would be thrilled to see a taco truck outside their home, one Texas woman became enraged at the sight.
In a video posted to Youtube titled “racist woman talking about how she gonna call ICE ON US FOR SELLING FOOD IN DALLAS WHEN WE HAVE A PERMIT,” taco truck operator Claudia Lopez chronicles her altercation with a woman when she discovered the truck sitting on the street outside of her home. While the conflict originated in a tame manner, it soon escalated, eventually resulting in the woman threatening the immigration status of the truck employees.
Dressed in loose jeans and an inside-out V-neck shirt, the woman holds her cell phone in her hands and says “Please move,” while pointing her fingers down the street. She began to head back toward her house, but turned back around to start recording video on her cell phone.
One truck worker can be heard speaking in Spanish, while another says “go back inside.”
“Okay, baby girl. Vamanos,” the woman says. “I’ll call ICE.”
“Okay, call them. Okay? You can call them. Call them right now,” Lopez responds.
The woman, who had returned to the front steps of her home by then, then turns back around and starts to record video again.
As of Saturday afternoon, the video had already racked up almost 6,000 views on YouTube, and nearly 9,000 retweets on Twitter.
According to Raw Story, Lopez said she did have a permit to operate the taco truck in that location.
Lopez is a regular contributor on YouTube, adding videos that range from cooking and dancing to one of her being disciplined for belting out a song at the shopping mall.
