I have been dwelling on this article since reading it...

Here is the jist:
The two embarrassing eaters had lunch at Di Frabo, an Italian restaurant in San Antonio, and were apparently pleased with their $53 lunch of chicken piccata, salmon Florentine and burrata cheese… until they discovered that owner Fernando Franco was born in Mexico, and then, their entire dining experience was RUINED. “The food was tasty and the service was attentive,” they wrote on their receipt. “However the owner is ‘Mexican.’ We will not return. ‘America First.’”

These people won't return to a restaurant, because the restaurant is owned by a Mexican.
Legally, legit, a tax paying business.
The owner has an approved Visa and is investing in a business in Texas.

An Italian restaurant, which technically is foreign food, right?

A restaurant, with paid staff, ordering products and supplies from vendors, delivering satisfying service even.
A positive input to the local economy.

And these people had an altogether pleasant experience, by accounts.
But won't return.

Because America First...

What the actual water-headed kind of fucking thinking is that?
How does that even compute, beyond base level, xenophobia?
