White House senior adviser Stephen Miller was reportedly heckled at a Mexican restaurant in Washington two days before protesters chased Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen out of a Mexican restaurant near the White House.

The New York Post reported Wednesday that a fellow diner called Mr. Miller a “fascist” Sunday night at the Espita Mezcaleria restaurant in Shaw.

Mr. Miller is reported to be the driving force behind President Trump’s zero-tolerance policy at the border.

“Hey look guys, whoever thought we’d be in a restaurant with a real-life fascist begging [for] money for new cages?” a diner said to Mr. Miller, a witness told The Post.

Mr. Miller reportedly didn’t respond to the heckler.

On Tuesday night, a group of protesters with the Metro DC Democratic Socialists of America drove Ms. Nielsen out of the DXDC Cocina Mexicana restaurant in downtown Washington after they swarmed the Homeland Security secretary and chanted “shame!”

One of the protesters turned out to be an activist named Allison Hrabar, who works as a paralegal specialist at the Department of Justice.
