The shirt worn by workers at the Mexican restaurant depicts a cartoonish animal trap with tacos as bait underneath the words "how to catch an illegal immigrant."
The eatery insists that will serve all patrons irrespective of "race, religion or political views." However, it offers no apology for its opinion on the matter of undocumented immigration:
As most tax paying Americans, we do believe ILLEGAL immigrants are taxing the system we support and live under, thereby, causing us to work harder and pay more taxes in support of their illegal activities which our government has simply chosen to look the other way. Is it racist to disagree with those who are not supporting the American system?
Taco Cid was once a chain with some four locations across South Carolina, but has since shuttered all but one of its establishments.
