Legalized Segregation: NY Family Kicked Out of Restaurant After Failing to Produce Vax Passport
A family in New York was denied to eat in a restaurant and was asked to leave the premises because they didn’t have a ‘vaccine passport’.
A viral video shows a father accusing a server of enforcing segregation after he was asked to show his vaccination card. The father told the server that they are religiously exempt from the vaccine.
The father was later identified as Ray Velez on social media, and he posted the video on his Instagram account with a caption, “Juliana’s pizza in Brooklyn Discriminates. The world needs to see the ugly face of segregation. @julianaspizza you my friends need to wake up,I told I would expose your business for it’s participation in the modern day segregation. Share this far and wide everyone discrimination will not be tolerated.”
Velez was seen asking the other people dining at Juliana’s Pizza if they’re okay with setting segregation in society and if it is the kind of America they want to live in where the kids can not eat just because they don’t have a vaccine card. At one point, a diner flipped him off. “No, f*ck you! You see, you are not American, that’s why you need to get the f*ck out of here!. This is America and in America everybody can eat,” the Velez responded.
“Key To NYC” went into effect last Monday where the New Yorkers are obliged to bring with them their proof of vaccination before taking part in any indoor activities like restaurants, gyms, bars, nightclubs, and etc.
Judge David Hurd of the US District Court for the Northern District of New York, a Clinton appointee on Tuesday granted a temporary restraining order in response to the lawsuit filed on Monday by 17 healthcare workers, including doctors and nurses, who claimed the vaccine mandate violated their Constitutional rights.
“This order does not suspend the vaccine mandate, but it temporarily bars the Department of Health from enforcing the mandate where individuals have claims for religious exemption,” Crampton-Hays said in an emailed statement. “We are considering all of our legal options to keep our communities safe.”
We never thought that we would live in a country where you need to show “papers” to eat.
