The Point of No Return for Immigration Reform: The Proof is in the Pizza
By now, we've all heard of the special promotion that a Dallas, Texas-based pizza chain called Pizza Patron, was doing.
For a limited time, they are allowing their customers, who are primarily Latinos, to pay for their pizza orders with pesos.
The rationale behind the promotion is that many of the pizza chain's customers have returned from spending the Christmas holidays visiting relatives in Mexico. And therefore, most probably have leftover pesos from their trips.
Why not use them for payment?
Well the owner of the pizza chain, Antonio Swad, who is not even Latino, didn't know what he was getting himself into.
It seemed his promotion stirred the hornet's nest of anti-illegal immigration supporters.
