A South Carolina Mexican restaurant is defending itself against accusations of racism for selling a t-shirt that describes “how to catch an illegal immigrant” using two tacos and a trap.
Taco Cid, in West Columbia, says the shirts are “comical” and a reasonable political statement about immigration policy in the United States.
The shirts read “how to catch an illegal immigrant” and then a cartoon shows two tacos under a box with a cord, similar to a mousetrap. An employee wearing the shirt caught the eye of a reporter for the Columbia Free Times, who tweeted a picture on Sunday saying the message was “stirring controversy.”
Minority rights groups have slammed the message as insensitive and as a ploy to drum up business.
