Woman who attacked man wearing ‘MAGA’ hat was illegal immigrant, taken into ICE custody: officials
A woman who was arrested last week for allegedly attacking a man wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat at a Massachusetts restaurant is an illegal immigrant from Brazil, Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said.
ICE officers detained Rosiane Santos, 41, on Tuesday after they discovered she was in the U.S. illegally, Boston 25 News reported.
“Deportation officers with ICE’s Fugitive Operations Team arrested Rosie Santos, an unlawfully present citizen of Brazil,” ICE said in a statement. “Santos is facing local charges for assault and other offenses. She is presently in ICE custody and has been entered into removal proceedings before the federal immigration courts.”
Santos, who was living in Falmouth, was charged with disorderly conduct, assault and battery after a confrontation at the Casa Vallarta Mexican Restaurant last Friday.
Bryton Turner, 23, told police he was at the restaurant when Santos started yelling at him because he was wearing the iconic red hat made famous during Trump’s presidential campaign. Turner recorded the incident on his phone. The video showed Santos walking behind him and hitting his hat off his head.
Here’s a video of the incident, in case you haven’t seen it:

Woman accused of assaulting man in MAGA hat facing deportation
A woman on Cape Cod has been detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) after assaulting a man wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.
Rosiane Santos, 41, of Falmouth was charged with disorderly conduct and assault and battery after a confrontation at a Mexican restaurant last Friday.
Santos told police she was upset the man was wearing the hat in a Mexican restaurant. According to ICE, Santos’ arrest revealed her status as an illegal immigrant from Brazil who overstayed a 1994 tourist visa.
The man wearing the hat, 23-year-old Bryton Turner of Mashpee, told Boston 25 News he pulled out his phone and started recording her after she confronted him at Casa Vallarta.
“I don’t think ICE or anything would’ve been involved if it wasn’t for the video,” said Emmanuel Santos, Rosiane’s husband.
This is a problem entirely of her own making.
She has no one else to blame.
