Protesters target lawyer who ranted against Spanish speakers

NEW YORK (AP) — A mariachi band has performed songs like “La Cucaracha” during a protest in front of the former office of a New York City lawyer caught on video ranting against Spanish-speaking workers.

The protesters Friday asked for the disbarment of attorney Aaron Schlossberg.

They sang along with the mariachi band and carried signs that read “Se habla Spanish” and “Racism, no Bueno.”

A video clip of Schlossberg yelling at people for speaking Spanish in a midtown Manhattan restaurant sparked widespread outrage on Wednesday.

Schlossberg didn’t respond to a call seeking comment Friday.

It’s unlikely he heard the serenade. The company that runs the building Schlossberg uses as his law firm’s address said Thursday that his agreement with it had been terminated because his actions “were contrary” to its regulations.
