“Like any other complex, I was just doing the work for all of them, mowing the lawn. I passed by her apartment and when I turned around to do the second round that’s when I saw her standing,” said Andrade.
He says this isn’t the first time this woman has done this. Three months ago, this same woman approached him and told him to “Go back to his country.”
This time he recorded it to show that the valley isn’t exempt from the racist divide, which he says has started during this administration.
Marie is seen in the video demanding to see his citizenship status with no mask and no respect for social distancing as she stands in front of him and his equipment.
“When she was harassing me, I started to feel mad because I was just doing my work,” said Andrade.
Local immigration lawyers have seen this video, they say people think they’re playing police, but it’s just racist.
“Unless you are law enforcement, but aside from that, they are using that conversation as just another way to intimidate and create objects out of human beings who appear to be different from them,” said Megan Beaman Jacinto, who is an immigration lawyer in the Coachella Valley.
Andrade has reported the incident to his employer and plans to avoid the area. “Based on what I have seen from her, I think she thinks she didn’t do anything wrong. She believes she’s in the right, so I don’t think she’ll ever apologize,” said Andrade.
