ICE Crackdown, Mexican Restaurants Hardest Hit

Cesar Rodriguez runs a tamale restaurant on Staten Island in New York City. Cesar was dragged physically into the United States when he was but 13 years of age, and thus at this moment is protected from deportation by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals decree. Cesar complains that on a good Sunday in the Obama years the tamale restaurant would make $3,000, while this past Trump-era Sunday he only made $700.

Illegal immigrants, he complains, are afraid to go out to eat.
