I hope this is not a double thread but great news nonetheless.

What gets me is the protest of firing illegal aliens when they were immediately replaced by American and legal workers. Hey! That's the point! Getout and leave our jobs alone.

Quote:
The protesters didn't claim that all the fired employees were legal U.S. workers, but they did assert that the workers were fired without much explanation and without being given time to provide documents proving they were legal U.S. workers. They also claimed that fired workers had to endure delays in being paid. The claims, if true, would appear to be violations of Minnesota's labor laws.

Chipotle responded that accused workers were given one-on-one opportunities to provide documents that could prove they were legally able to work in the United States. If they couldn't, they were fired in accordance with U.S. law, Arnold said, adding that pay and accumulated vacation time were paid promptly.

If they want authentic looking Mexican workers to sell Mexican food we have millions of legal citizens of Mexican ancestry that could do that.

Yep, and at the one by me they do use legal citizens that happen to be immigrants from Mexico. All are polite, hardworking, and speak clear English.
