A former Justice Department employee who took part in a protest against Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and who was the subject of a Project Veritas report is now asking the public for money.

Hrabar alleges on her GoFundMe page that she was eventually fired because of the protest and was forced to pack up her office on Sept. 24.
"I don’t regret standing up for immigrants unable to advocate for themselves," she wrote.
Hrabar is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America and was a paralegal specialist at the Justice Department.
She was recently profiled in a video by Project Veritas, a conservative organization that looks to expose supposed liberal bias in the government, press and left-leaning organizations.
A Justice Department source confirmed to Fox News that Hrabar no longer works for the department, effective midnight Monday. The source said Hrabar was a contractor, or a term employee, and her contract was set to expire later this year, but was cut short.
The harassment of Nielsen came amid the nationwide protests over President Trump's "zero-tolerance policy" at the U.S.-Mexico border.
Hrabar said that she plans on using the donation money to cover medical costs, rent and a possible retainer to "fight back" legally.
"Please give whatever you can," she wrote on her donation page.
She also said that if she finds a new job sooner than anticipated, she'll give excess donations to a migrant justice legal fund.
