It’s okay to import cuisine from Mexico, but not its people.

Just hours after word went out that the bill had been yanked from the floor, a group of House Republicans were spotted dining at a Pacifico Cantina, a popular Mexican restaurant along Barracks Row on Capitol Hill.

The party, which included Reps. Renee Ellmers (N.C.), John Runyan (N.J), and Jaimie Herrera Buetler (Wash.), seemed in good spirits, a fellow diner said. Tortilla chips and beer were spotted headed in the direction of their table.

    Its not illegal to eat Mexican food, however it is a crime to violate immigration laws.

      I’m not surprised the irony escaped you.

      You sure they don’t have illegals in the kitchen? You do realize they come for the jobs and not your charming personality.

    Was the food smuggled in?

  10. Sideswiper August 2nd, 2014 at 12:19 pm

    Did they check the papers of the restaurant staff first?

    I hope the cooks put some “special sauce” in their food.
