Moosayar, the son of Afghan immigrants, protested outside California Gov. Gavin Newsom‘s anti-recall rally on Wednesday in San Leandro, where Harris joined the governor to campaign on his behalf, as FOX 40 Sacramento first reported.
The 24-year-old emphasized that he and other protesters weren’t there to voice support for or against the Newsom recall but to instead deliver a message to the vice president as the Biden administration continues its work to pull hundreds of U.S. citizens and allies out of Afghanistan after ordering a complete withdrawal of the U.S. military from the country by Aug. 31.
“You know, we were excited to have Kamala — a woman of color, the daughter of an immigrant — in our government as a vice first female vice president because we thought we can connect with her, she will feel for us,” Moosayar told Fox News. “But it’s been a total disappointment, which is why we were there.”
