Perhaps Dr/Mayor Roque needs to read the Constitution he swore to uphold when he took office. What a jerk! Congrats for calling him out, Mr. Kirchgessner.

This is unbelievable. Banning a symbol that represents a country that gave your freedom and opportunity. This Mayor should move out then. This is just weapons-grade stupid by the Mayor.
