Anyways this white guy comes over interrupts us both and tells the worker "if you don't fix the produce isle, I am going to deport you"...The worker lost his cool and started yelling at him to go "F off, I was born here" and almost lost his job.

I spoke to his manager about the rude customer and the manager told me in a quiet whispering voice "this happens all the time".

This is all pretty sad, nothing "hilarious" about these sort of confrontations.
What you described sounds odd--------especially being that both you and the ethnic 'El Salvadorian' were speaking English. I would have lost my cool as well under the circumstances.

Unless; Mach50, what you just outlined is the thing that I have been fearing is starting to come to pass. Read that innocent i.e. Americans/green card holders who look stereotypically 'Hispanic' (darker skin, straight hair, etc.) are starting to get caught in the crossfire between the extremists on both sides of the growing immigration fight.
