Immigrant street vendors are among the most cherished people in our communities. They bring two things we can’t do without: food and culture.[Hey, pochos: This design is available on t-shirts, too! Women’s in baby blue and men’s in black on sale now. Wear this shirt with Elote Pride!]
In a year of increased hate crimes against immigrants and people of color, and also rampant xenophobia, Islamophobia, misogyny, and anti-Semitism, I’m not surprised that the ire of mouth breathers has turned to street vendors.
