Watch: Woman in hijab harassed and asked to show her green card in US

A hijab-clad woman in the US was allegedly abused and asked to show her green card by a man in a cafe, becoming the latest in the row of xenophobic incidents in the wake of President Donald Trump's "visa ban" decision on seven Muslim-majority nations.
A young Muslim-American woman was photographed and called b***h when she started filming him.
The 39-year-old Asma Elhuni noticed a man walk into Joe’s Coffee Shop and started taking pictures of her as she was very much involved with her laptop.
“I was just literally on my computer, minding my business, and I look up and see a guy with a camera pointing at me,” Elhuni told Atlanta's Creative Loafing.
Elhuni, who is a political science graduate from Georgia State University and legislative intern for State Representative Brenda Lopez, said she first ignored the man who started photographing her.
“I’m like, are you taking a picture of me? And he goes: ‘Yeah.’ Just like that! And so I was like: ‘OK, ‘ll take a picture of you.’ And he smiled, and I was like, OK, I’m going to videotape him now,” Elhuni reportedly said.
Elhuni is seen asking the man why he is taking her pictures. Then the man sits next to her and says he was taking another man's picture and accuses her of being “uptight” and “acting like a b***h”.
He then asks her, "do you have green card", where a friend of him appears and takes him away.
Elhuni posted the video on her Facebook page, which went viral with more than 90,000 views.
“Really what I wanted to show him was, one, what he did was inappropriate, and two, I’m not afraid of you. Because did you see how he sat down and got in my face? I knew my weapon was my camera,” Elhuni said.
The abuse incident comes in the wake of Trump's signing of executive order barring the entry of citizens of Muslim majority nations.
