Here is the shirt and I have no problem with this at all. What is all the ruckus about?
Oh that's right, political correctness and we all have to be nice to one another even if you are here ILLEGALLY? What is it about illegal you do not understand? Christians, Jews, Muslims, Blacks, Whites, it does not matter and it is time to get over getting offended so easily.
From the comments at NBC Latino: Teri LeFaive ·
"And yet, if this t-shirt referenced catching the white "man" and showed a bottle of PBR sitting in the back of a pick-up truck with a confederate flag in the rear window and horns on the front grill, people would think it was hilarious and it would be perfectly acceptable because other races can rip on whites as much as they want and it isn't racist, but when a non-white race is joked about, people instantly start screaming racism. And it's ALWAYS the white people who are "racist" because it is apparently impossible for non-whites to be racist themselves. Funny how that works. Guess what folks? NO ONE alive today was around when "Arizona was stolen from Mexico to become part of the US," nor when slavery was practiced, etc. Non-whites hating on whites for being white is no different than whites hating on any other race for being that race, but again, it's okay for hispanics/asians/blacks, etc. to hate the big, bad, white man, just as long as it isn't the reverse. I'd buy your tacos, Taco Cid. :)"
If you cannot see the humor here and you are all offended and insulted, that is YOUR problem. If I could afford one of these shirts I would order one.
But Pastor Serrano says the Latino community in South Carolina doesn’t find it funny.
“Here we experience a lot of intimidation,” he said. “This is a very racist state and we fight to get rid of that. We are against anti-immigrant laws and when we see these things it just makes us feel bad.”
To the good pastor I have this to say: how about feeling bad about those who come here illegally and are draining state services bone dry? I am against any and all illegal aliens and they are not immigrants. They have broken the law. PatriotUSA
‘How to Catch an Illegal Immigrant’ T-Shirts Spark UproarTaco 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 it’s offensive, it’s 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 can’t possibly make a decent taco.”
Navarette’s 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.
Efren Serrano, a pastor at Iglesia Nueva Esperanza in West Columbia, which is five minutes away from Taco Cid, said the shirts are inappropriate.
