first_imgGreen Shirt Guy, aka Alex Kack, doing his thing. Video screenshot by Eric Mack/CNET For Alex Kack, going viral was as simple as putting on a green shirt and laughing. Kack was captured on camera losing it at a Tucson City Council meeting Tuesday night in a response to a pair of pro-Trump protesters. They disrupted the meeting with shouts and signs opposing the city’s move to put a measure on the November ballot to become a so-called “sanctuary city.”   Broadly, a sanctuary city is a local government with a policy of limiting its cooperation with the federal government’s enforcement of immigration laws.  I just found out my Halloween costume for 2019!
