Univision backs efforts to destroy Houston Mexican restaurant that fed Jeff Sessions

I am old enough to remember when the Left thought that harassing a person in the middle of dinner or refusing to serve him in the first place was punishment enough for a Republican dining out.

One of the people so mistreated recently was Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who not only dined at a branch of the Houston restaurant chain El Tiempo but posed for a souvenir photo alongside chef and owner Domenic Laurenzo.

Most of the wrath on social media that followed the posting of that photo  was diverted to the restaurant itself, condemning it for daring to do business with a member of the Trump cabinet.

But that campaign evidently wasn’t enough to satisfy Univision, America’s number one Spanish-speaking TV network, which is now out for Laurenzo’s blood.

The network recently ran a 3-minute-long segment on El Tiempo, complete with a condemnation of the restaurant by the head of a local immigrant advocacy group, plus plenty of anti-Trump, anti-America misinformation. At one point in the broadcast, for instance, Univision correspondent Vilma Tarazone wrongly claims that Sessions was in Houston for an anti-immigrant event; in fact he was there to outline goals for combating violent crime.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson invited another Univision correspondent, Enrique Acevedo, onto his show to discover why the network had no problem supporting an attempt to drive an Hispanic-owned restaurant out of business. The video follows.
