Back in the United States, immigrants’ rights protesters in Tucson, Arizona, targeted Breitbart News editor and President Trump’s former chief strategist Steve Bannon as he gave a keynote address Saturday to a U.S. Border Patrol-affiliated group. Outside, scores of protesters were confined by police to an area blocks from the Brian Terry Foundation’s awards banquet—but one person was able to slip inside to personally confront Bannon. This is cellphone video shot by protester Bryan Sanders.

Bryan Sanders: “I’m from Tucson.”

Stephen Bannon: “Hey, how you doing, brother?”

Bryan Sanders: “I’m Bryan.”

Stephen Bannon: “Hey, Bryan. How you doing, man?”

Bryan Sanders: “And I just want you to know, because I couldn’t have you come to Tucson and not hear this.”

Stephen Bannon: “Yeah.”

Bryan Sanders: “What you’re proposing out there is driving the country apart.”

Stephen Bannon: “Yeah.”

Bryan Sanders: “And I know that you know this. I know that you know that you’re a white supremacist. You’re about to have an orange jumpsuit.”

Stephen Bannon: “That’s not that true, but thanks.

Bryan Sanders: “You’re going to have an orange jumpsuit.”

Stephen Bannon: “Thanks, brother. I appreciate it.”

Bryan Sanders: “How about we do this? One, two, three, 'Treason!' Say 'treason' for me.”

Stephen Bannon: “Thanks, brother. I appreciate it.”

Unidentified: “You’re getting out of here. Move.”

Bryan Sanders: “All right, I’m leaving.”
