Fort Bend Owners of Anti-Trump Bumper Sticker Threaten Civil Rights Lawsuit

Share

The ACLU of Texas offered to assist Fonseca after the sheriff posted a photo of the truck on Facebook and claimed the prosecutor had approved charges - which the district attorney disputes.

State Rep. Ron Reynolds and Fonseca will be holding a press conference at 10 a.m. Monday to discuss the injustice against Fonseca at the Fort Bend County Justice Center. Attorney Brian Middleton says those stops would have alerted Nehls to Fonseca before the sheriff targeted her online.

"The Sheriff made the post on his Personal page".

On Thursday, Fonseca was arrested on an outstanding felony fraud warrant, issued by the police in nearby Rosenberg, Texas.

Karen Fonseca, the owner of a profane anti-trump bumper sticker, is threatening a civil rights lawsuit against Fort Bend County after she was arrested.

Fonseca said that she had the sticker for almost a year and that the decal has caused quite a bit of controversy in the community.

In his Facebook post, Nehls said he needed to talk with the proprietor of the truck after he got a few objections about the sticker.

The owner of a pickup truck featuring a huge decal on its back window saying "f*** Trump" has been arrested. She said there was "no particular reason" they chose to stick the message on the back of the truck. "We are getting more positive than negative but at the same time I feel it was went about in the wrong way and the sticker fits appropriately", says Karen Fonseca. "We have to protect people's First Amendment right to free speech", Reynolds said ahead of the news conference.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Texas posted on Facebook that Fonseca's message is protected speech and urged her to reach out to the organization.

"People back down and don't want to stand for what they believe in".

Another day, another angry sticker added to that headline-making, Trump-hating pick-up truck.

As for Sheriff Nehls, he told local NBC affiliate KPRC he was "not surprised" by the addition of his name to Fonseca's truck, and that he "thinks it's disgusting". For just $9.99 anyone wishing to test how easily their message can slip under the radar and even for those who aren't fans of bright red, the "F**k Trump" Baseball Cap comes in many different colors.
