Taco Cid in West Columbia, South Carolina, is getting some attention this week after a Free Times reporter noticed that employees are made to wear a rather racially charged uniform.

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."

As the Palmetto Public Record notes, "if the shirt's meaning isn't clear enough, the letters are colored with the red, white and green of the Mexican flag."

On its website, Taco Cid claims its uniform is "a witty and comical statement regarding ILLEGAL immigrants," and contains "NO racial nor hate remarks towards any specific ethnic group."

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.

I see a lot of people saying they'd "give" family members money.

Thats not what you want to do.

You want to set up a trust fund so they get a monthly payment. You can set up a trust fund so your mother gets, say, $10,000 a month for the rest of her life. According to my math, $10,000 per month for 20 years is $2.4 million. That's better than giving her $2.4 million up front because she can blow it all in a matter of days and then she'll want more and you'd feel obligated to give it to her.

So if you win, don't "give" anybody anything. Set up a trust fund.

Now that I think about it, I could set up a trust fund for my brother. I'd give him $10,000 a month. He's about 45 now so $10,000 per month for 40 years is only $4.8 million. That makes more sense than giving him the money in one lump sum.

    A better one would be to put a Home Depot under the box, but it would need to be a ginormous box.

    Nonetheless, a better way to catch illegals.

    Technically anti-Mexican (or Illegal) propaganda isn't racist...because Mexican is not a race and most hispanics are considered white (for the purpose of cenus) so its really ethnocentrism (as Hispanic is an ethnicity not a race) and xenophobia (as Mexican is a nationality, not a race).


    Ya'll don't hear me though. Its bullshit the employees are forced to wear that trash and support it, sad part is they think the shit is a joke....


    Yup, people keep letting shit like this slide, because it doesnt offend their particular demographic.....yet. I hope some messicans firebomb that place.

    I don't see why they made the shirts, especially for all the workers to wear. Okay so you don't appreciate illegal immigrants, understandable, but why do your employees have to wear a t-shirt depicting your un-appreciation?

    Uh cuz that's what white folks do.

    Oh go cry a river.

    Living in los angeles where illegal immigration is abundant is a huge problem for americans because our resources are drained.

    lets not go there with the feelings boo boo....

    Im all for people coming over to become citizens, to have a better life, and secure a future for their families but dont make it seem like all illegal immigrants are assimilated to the american culture.
