A racist rant by a New York attorney that has gone viral is now the subject of a formalized complaint by Rep. Adriano Espaillat and Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr.

“The statements made by this attorney at a New York restaurant serves as further proof of the wave of intolerance that is running rampant across our country,” Espaillat said.

“This individual has had a troubling history of hateful behavior, while the White House is sending a clear message that you can say anything and get away with it. The Trump Administration’s proposed policies that would tear immigrant children away from their families and most recently calling individuals animals is simply outrageous. We are sending this grievance to say that you cannot engage in xenophobia, bigotry, hate and get away with it. Such behavior should never be tolerated.”

Attorney, Aaron Schlossberg, was caught on video berating Spanish-speaking restaurant employees and threatening to call immigration enforcement.

Diaz and Espaillat sent a former letter of complaint to the Departmental Disciplinary Committee in the state court system.

“Racism and hatred have no place in New York State, and certainly no place in our justice system,” Diaz said. “I stand with Congressman Espaillat in calling for the disciplinary committee of the New York State Unified Court System to examine the attorney identified as Aaron Schlossberg’s reprehensible behavior and review his law license for possible revocation.”
