Video shows man in NYC threatening to call ICE on Spanish-speaking cafe workers

- (FOX NEWS) -- A social media video of a man yelling racist comments at two females in an eatery at lunchtime has gone viral.

The video, alleged to be of a Manhattan lawyer, has been viewed more than 2 million times. In the video, the man berates two females at the eatery for speaking Spanish.

"Every person I listen to—he's speaking it, she's speaking it. This is America," the man says in the video. The eatery has been identified on social media as Fresh Kitchen on Madison Avenue, near 39th Street.

After being confronted by a manager, the man continued: "Your clients and your staff are speaking Spanish to staff when they should be speaking English...My guess is they're undocumented, so my next call is to ICE to have each one of them taken out of my country. If they have the balls to come here and live off my money—I pay for their welfare. I pay for their ability to be here."

Edward Suazo posted the video and described the situation in a Facebook post, detailing that his wife and her best friend were buying lunch, started speaking Spanish to the waiter when the man went off.
