When Taco Cid — a Mexican restaurant — started selling and making its employees wear a joke t-shirt saying “how to catch an illegal immigrant” — they had no idea they’d be getting calls from all over the country wanting to buy them (at $35.00 each, no less). But things weren’t rosy for long when the restaurant’s Spanish-speaking clientele deemed the shirt racist in intent. The taco restaurant put a message about the t-shirts on their website and continues to sell them despite its offended customers. The restaurant owner says he was fired from his job and replaced by illegal immigrants, so it appears he is selling the t-shirts in revenge.
