Skip to comments.Outrage after taco restaurant gives employees “How to Catch an Illegal Immigrant” t-shirts
Posted on 01/08/2013 2:09:35 PM PST by moonshinner_09
Taco Cid, a South Carolina Mexican eatery, has caused controversy after encouraging employees to wear How to Catch an Illegal Immigrant t-shirts. The shirt features a box trap with a stick and two tacos meant to lure undocumented immigrants. Latino organizations have responded calling the shirts offensive.
Of course its offensive, its meant to be, says Lisa Navarette, advisor to the president at the National Council of La Raza. This is simply a failing business trolling for attention. We would recommend people not patronize this place. Sure, because of this insult but really due to the fact that a restaurant this clueless about the Latino community cant possibly make a decent taco.
Navarettes reference to Taco Cid as a failed business, likely comes because it is the only remaining Taco Cid in South Carolina. The rest have been closed. It is also a one-star restaurant on Yelp.com, but most of the reviews have come after this controversy unfolded.

I am not upset at all.
People are too sensitive. Its a joke. Laugh. Or don’t. Either way, move on.
There is no weaker position to be in than that of the offended ... always the victim, rendered useless by a bad joke.
Replace the two tacos with a EBT card and a Welfare check and you have the situation in California...
I got caught and I’m not even an immigrant!
Outrage? Its hilarious.
We are open Monday through Saturday and closed Sundays in observance of a day of worship.

How about an INS shirt? How would the ‘Lateeeeeno community’ feel about that?

All its missing is Speedy Gonzales trying to steal the tacos - AliveeeVa!
LOL! So true.
I remember when they banned the Frito Bandito erasers from the bags of Fritos :(

One says...I was lured with the promise of tacos and now I can’t leave! If you eat here please bring your birth certificate, social security card, state ID, and if necessary your green card! Failure to provide these will result being trapped in a box.
Les va a dar chorro!
He should replace the tacos with an EBT card for bait.
LOL — Thanks for sharing that; the reviewer definitely has a sense of humor.
Where can I buy one?
The Illegal Burrito, Mexican food so fresh it should be deported.
