    Do you find something wrong with business targeting customers? I don't, I expect them to.

    If we can't keep illegals out of the country, I'd much rather them spend their money here than ship it back to Mexico.

    I don't think anyone here is anti-Hispanic. Realistically, it's anti-illegal immigrant. If they're there legally, great. A smart business caters to their area, and it's inhabitants.

    Couldn't rep, but you reiterated what I was saying. I expect businesses to cater to the local cliental, I wish all were legal, but that's me. I don't expect 'businesses' to follow me.
