Photo: Man Tells Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa to "Go Back to Mexico"
After a recent visit to the California state capitol, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa was heckled by a man who told him to “Go back to Mexico.”
The man identified himself as Davi Rodrigues from Sacramento and when Morain asked him if he yells at mayors “all the time” he told the reporter the mayor “is a pissant.”
Morain recounted what the man told him:
The man … proceeding to spew about how an “illegal alien” killed the son of a friend down in L.A., and how it was Villaraigosa’s fault. “He is a Mexican. That is what he claims. He is always defending illegal Mexicans and Mexico. … I have no qualms about saying anything to him.
Morain wrote that the mayor, who clearly heard what Rodrigues had said, just smiled and continued walking. His office chose to give no further comment to other news sources, telling HuffPo LA, “We think the Mayor’s response in that story speaks for itself.”
Just to clarify Mayor Villaraigosa has never lived in Mexico. He was born in Boyle Heights, California, graduated from Roosevelt High School and went on to graduate from UCLA.
