Swastika drawn on restaurant’s note on ‘A Day Without Immigrants’ 

Owners and customers of a Watkinsville restaurant that closed Thursday for “A Day Without Immigrants” returned Friday to find a swastika and other comments on a note they left on their door. 

The Taqueria La Parrilla was one of thousands of restaurants in the United States that closed Thursday in boycott of President Donald Trump’s executive orders to crack down on illegal immigration.

The defaced note was covered with statements including, “Build the wall,” “You just got your last peso from my family,” and “Then I cannot support you,” the Athens Banner-Herald reported.

The original note read: “In light of recent events and social media news, we’ve decided to stand behind and support our employees as it is thanks to them and their support that we are able to do business. Therefore we are closed today. We’re sorry for the inconvenience and ask for your understanding. Sincerely, La Parrilla.”

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reached out to the Oconee County Sheriff’s Office to see if any charges will be pursued. The sheriff’s office has not responded.
