A South Carolina restaurant has drawn attention onto itself after a reporter took a picture of an employee wearing a shirt bearing the slogan, “How to catch an illegal immigrant” over a box trap with a taco inside.
The photo, which was taken andposted online by Columbia Free Times reporter Corey Hutchins on Sunday, shows an employee at Taco Cid wearing the shirt while apparently on duty.
Update: Hutchins contacted The Raw Story after publication of this story and said the picture of the shirt was taken by photographer Nathan Sloan. Sloan told The Huffington Post that the employee wearing the shirt was standing at the restaurant’s front counter.
