NEW YORK — A momentary rant could have long-term impact on a man caught on video threatening to call immigration enforcement on restaurant workers because hearing them speaking Spanish angered him.

Two elected officials sent a letter Thursday to the disciplinary committee that oversees lawyers in New York state to file a formal complaint against him.

U.S. Rep. Adriano Espaillat and Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. called the video “vile.”

The clip of the man yelling in a midtown Manhattan restaurant went viral Wednesday, and he was identified through social media as attorney Aaron Schlossberg.

In the video, Schlossberg said he would be calling Immigration and Customs Enforcement to have the workers “kicked out of my country.”

Schlossberg didn’t respond to a call and email seeking comment.
