Where Not to Eat: Chipotle CEO Allies w/ La Raza, Lobbies for Immigration Amnesty

By Debbie Schlussel

If you like Mexican-style fast food but support a secure and safe America, don’t eat at Chipotle.  I already told you, months ago, about Chipotle’s knowing employment of thousands of illegal aliens, which it was forced to fire, after Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) investigations showed that in many cases, more than half of its employees were illegal aliens.  There is no way that, when more than half your employees are illegal aliens, you don’t know about it. Now, Chipotle’s “co-leader” (that’s testicle-less liberal psycho-babble for “CEO”) Monty Moran wants immigration amnesty, and he’s allied with the reconquistador illegal alien lobby to do it.  Is that really the definition of “food with integrity,” as Chipotle proclaims its product to be?  That’s despite the fact that for every single opening he has at his restaurants, there are 30-40 applicants.  The problem is that many of those are U.S. citizen applicants.  And–ya know–we can’t have that in America . . . Americans being hired for the jobs that Americans supposedly “just won’t do.”


Chipotle & Co-Leader Monty Moran: Food w/ Racist La Raza Reconquistador “Integrity”

Moreover, Moron, er . . . Moran, met with racist, reconquista La Raza to form an alliance and strategize on how to achieve nationwide amnesty for illegal aliens.  Given that, you should assume that your taco dollars helped finance a contribution to La Raza from the Chipotle co-scumbag.  Remember this BS the next time you get a hankering for a Chipotle burrito:

In a so-called silent raid, Immigration and Customs Enforcement inspected the chain’s hiring records and found more than 500 undocumented workers, who had to leave the Denver-based company. It had to let go more than half of its 900 employees in Minnesota and lost others to federal scrutiny of outlets in Washington, D.C., and Virginia.

The enforcement moves left some Chipotle restaurants struggling to operate as managers rushed to train replacements. Finding qualified workers has become a continuing challenge. . . .

Chipotle says its employee annual turnover at its restaurants nationwide has risen to more than 125% since the investigation from below 100%. Triple-digit turnover rates are common in the fast-food industry, where companies may have to fill the same job multiple times a year. Chipotle also says managers in some markets are interviewing 30 to 40 candidates to fill one opening, compared with 10 previously. At a recent job fair in Washington state, Chipotle hired just eight of the 100 people it interviewed.

“We have to look a lot harder,” says Mr. Moran, the company’s co-chief executive. The experience has turned the 45-year-old Mr. Moran into a vocal advocate for changing U.S. immigration laws. In recent months, he has met with Sens. Michael Bennet and Mark Udall, both Colorado Democrats, and Charles Schumer, a New York Democrat, as well as Republican Reps. Darrell Issa of California and Lamar Smith of Texas. His message: fix immigration. . . .

He has told lawmakers he needs access to a strong, legal work force. A temporary guest-worker program, advocated by some lawmakers, might work in sectors like agriculture, but it doesn’t address the needs of a business that requires qualified labor on a year-round basis, he says.

Fast-growing Chipotle has much at stake in the immigration debate. . . . The chain, which says it expects to hire 100,000 workers in the next three years, sees immigrants as vital to its success. About half its workers are Hispanics, including many in management roles. Chipotle also regards immigrants as important customers for its premium burritos and tacos.

Ah, see there’s the money quote. Its customers are “immigrants,” many of them here illegally. And that’s what’s going on here. This testosterone-challenged “co-leader” of Chipotle is playing politics with our safety and our borders. He’s taking political positions favored by his illegal alien customers and positions which helped his bottom line until ICE caught on. Yet, unlike top officials from other corporations caught by ICE knowingly hiring illegal aliens, this “co-leader” hasn’t been sentenced to being a co-boyfriend in prison. Or even charged with breaking the law, which he surely knew he was doing. Again, you don’t have illegal aliens comprising more than half your workforce and not know about it. The co-leader knew and he co-conspired. And he was the top dog at a major law firm before taking over, er . . . “co-leading,” Chipotle. There’s no excuse.

Mr. Moran, who was chief executive of a Denver law firm before joining Chipotle in 2005. . . . When checking documents of potential employees, “our goal was to be zealous, but not overzealous,” he says.

Translation: we did as little as possible to make sure we were not hiring illegal aliens. What is “overzealous” in checking fake IDs of illegal aliens? There is no such thing.

Chipotle still is under investigation by the U.S. attorney’s office for the District of Columbia. A spokesman for the office said it doesn’t confirm or discuss probes. ICE also declined to comment.

Don’t worry. Chipotle will get away with it. The Obama administration isn’t serious about enforcing immigration laws. In fact, as we all know, the Obama administration is serious about NOT enforcing them and going after states that try to do the job the Obamaniks and ICE won’t do. Plus Chipotle hired known racist and “blackface expert” Julie L. Myers a/k/a “The ICE Princess” and paid her hundreds of thousands of dollars to talk ICE and the feds into not going after Chipotle.   (The chain also hired Barack Obama campaign lawyer and White House Counsel and the man who sent Elian Gonzalez back to Cuba, Greg Craig.)  Chipotle spokespeople declined to respond to inquiries regarding Myers and why the purported “socially responsible” company hired a woman who gave an award to an employee for his racist “blackface” Halloween costume.

Mr. Moran says he gave an earful to . . . Rep. Smith, who is chairman of the House Judiciary Committee and a fierce foe of illegal immigration. He also spoke against a proposed guest-worker program that would bring foreign labor to the U.S. only temporarily.

“I don’t want to use them and send them off,” Mr. Moran says he told the representatives.”We want people to develop long-term careers with us.”

Um, dude, then here’s a tip: HIRE. AMERICANS. Even illegal aliens aren’t gonna work the taco assembly line making minimum wage forever. That’s the nature of the fast food biz. People move on, just as McDonald’s and Burger King workers do.  Chipotle has no right to take (illegal) cuts or further jeopardize America’s national security to get ahead.

A Judiciary Committee staff member confirmed that Rep. Smith had a “courtesy meeting” with Mr. Moran at Chipotle’s request, but declined to comment on the discussion. . . .

The chain also has worked to cultivate its relationship with Hispanic and immigrant groups. Two senior Chipotle executives have met with officials at the National Council of La Raza, a prominent Hispanic advocacy organization.

Wow, given many of La Raza’s statements and posters, I hope co-leader Moron/Moran didn’t send White people. Check out the La Raza poster, above, which apparently Chipotle doesn’t have a problem with. Does the chain agree that Whites should get out? I vote that the first one who should go is Mr. Dear Co-Leader, Monty Moran.

Having been hit pretty hard, they were convinced they had to get involved in public policy discussion,” says Charles Kawasaki, the group’s senior vice president.

Again, if Chipotle is now allying and strategizing with the racist, anti-American La Raza, how much money is Chipotle giving the group? Unless Chipotle and La Raza open their books, you’ll never know, so it’s safer never to eat there and take the risk that you are giving even a penny to these bigots.

Remember, if you eat at Chipotle, you’re not just buying a taco, you’re funding the “Reconquista.”

Don’t think much of Chipotle anyway; Freebirds makes a much better giant burrito!

Alan on December 21, 2011 at 4:31 pm

The english used on the poster is hilarious. Obviously, put together by illegals.

FrenchKiss on December 21, 2011 at 4:50 pm

I don’t trust any of those places – bunch of crap rolled in a giant tortilla.

And even though the signs in the men’s room are in English and Spanish, should a cook really need to be reminded that he has to wash his hands after defecating and before returning to work?

DS_ROCKS! on December 21, 2011 at 4:51 pm

This post provides a context for that disgusting Wall Street Journal article yesterday, which regurgitated Chipotle’s supposed woes in finding qualified workers because of the dreadful attempts (@(?*&) to enforce illegal immigration laws.

Is Chipotle working directly with the Obama administration to gain Latino votes?

Little Al on December 21, 2011 at 4:52 pm

“At Chipotle, Moran has dedicated himself to fostering a company culture that recognizes and rewards top performers and prepares them for future leadership roles. This innovative approach has resulted in a more stable workforce, consistently well-run restaurants, and record profits for Chipotle.”

Huh? What’s innovative about rewarding top performers? Isn’t that what makes companies better?

And the only reason Chipotle has record profits is because idiot customer’s flock to eat that crap and Chipotle’s pays illegal aliens to do the work. That’s a great formula for success.

FrenchKiss on December 21, 2011 at 4:58 pm

My dad was half-Mexican. I hate La Raza and all these disgusting Latino immigration groups that try to temper our rightfully outraged view on illegal aliens. What other country lets the worst and dumbest into their country carte blanche? And I say if you really love a country you’d never (unless you’re North Korean and of like) enter illegally.

And let me take on the big issue of illegal aliens that the Left never acknowledges. The Left, known for their big-heartedness and love of civil rights NEVER talks about how illegal aliens are treated like a slave class. This pisses me off the most (other then the illegals trying to scam the system). I see how people treat them (ignore them) and act as if they are less than. Plus I don’t like the fact that in America a group of people can be treated as slaves. That’s pretty racist and unAmerican at it’s core.

What is this 125%? What does that really mean? Isn’t the highest 100%? Ugh, I hate when a percentage goes above 100%.

I hate Chipotle. Fast-food Mexican food is mostly wasted calories. Don’t get me wrong, I love it but it’s not worth the calories.

I do wish I were more fluent in Spanish but I do get outraged when I have to speak it to someone I know is illegal…or even worse, when there are signs in Spanish when ENGLISH is our language.

I’m gonna borrow Sean’s tag for this post…”Borders, Language and Culture”!

Skunky on December 21, 2011 at 5:13 pm

    Skunky, both the Left and Right are guilty, that’s why immigration is such a crisis now.

    Lefties motives usually are “bleeding hearts”, greed(cheap labor), and for some lefty politicians, they see illegals as future voters.

    For righties, it’s mainly greed(cheap labor).

    Some crappy companies have a turnover rate of 200% or more, which means a given job position will have at least 2 people quit that job within a year.

    Scott on December 21, 2011 at 11:08 pm

      You are absolutely right Scott. However, I was highlighting how the Left (a faux fighter of “civil rights”) NEVER acknowledges that their “kindheartedness” on the illegal aliens serves to prop up a slave class. The illegal aliens are so low (in their opinion) it is ok to sneak in here illegally and get crappy wages and do crappy jobs. THAT was my point of highlighting the Left on that issue you never hear anyone speak about. It’s offensive to me.

      Skunky on December 22, 2011 at 9:39 am

We have lots of troops coming home from far away places. Many of them won’t have jobs to come home to because some illegal is here doing it. I say let’s keep these brave men employed by deploying them to the southern border. That is where the real war is going on. Our troops are tasked with protecting us from enemies foreign and domestic, why not use them to enforce the border?

Jarhead on December 21, 2011 at 5:36 pm

    I like your idea Jarhead! Wish it would come to fruition.

    But with the Three Commie Stooges (ZerObama, Eric The Holder and “Big Sis”-“Chaz” Napolitano) at the helm it looks like more illegals and their families are streaming in and taking what is not theirs.

    I hope the fine readers of this blog of the Conservative ilk have noticed how neutered the Republican House leaders are since last years victory. They have done JACK and truly show how far left this once great country has gone. I get very angry when I think of it.

    Skunky on December 21, 2011 at 5:48 pm

I don’t see why any patriotic American should eat Mexican food anyway.

Jimbo on December 21, 2011 at 5:56 pm

Thanks for the information Debbie. I fully believe as SeaN does Borders7 Language, and Culture.

Confederate South on December 21, 2011 at 6:04 pm

I good question to ask is how the turnover number compares with the fast food industry. Maybe if the turnover is that high it may be a shitty place to work. If you want better qualified candidates, pay more. I like these social liberals who use immigrants by paying them low wages and treating them poorly since they don’t complain.

Turnover rates:


Turnover rates vary widely and can range as high as 100 percent or more. Employers who pay attention to the needs of their staff can reduce the turnover rate significantly.”

Mitch on December 21, 2011 at 6:06 pm

    Mitch, the problem cuts across both liberals and conservatives.

    BOTH liberals AND conservatives are selling out their country for greed.

    Both greedy libs and conservatives enjoy the cost savings from using the services of illegals to landscape their homes, babysit their kids, work in their fast food restaurants,chicken processing plants, pick their lettuce,etc.

    Also, some greedy business owners are prejudiced against American workers, because they can get an illegal to work hard for dirt cheap wages that most Americans won’t accept.

    Scott on December 21, 2011 at 11:41 pm

Hmmmm. I wonder if any of these illegals were getting less than minimum wage. I wonder if they got health insurance, or worked longer hours without overtime.

Real Mexican food is not sold in places like Crapotle and Taco Hell. Real Mexican restaurants are not owned by white people. They are owned by legal Mexicans.

Jonathan E. Grant on December 21, 2011 at 6:50 pm

I’ve never eaten at Chiptole, thank G-d.

Thank you Debbie for continuing to report this both today and in your previous articles linked above.

As a further way to show my feelings on the immigration issue, I will join Skunky in borrowing Sean R.’s closing Michael Savage quote:

“A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

JeffE on December 21, 2011 at 9:47 pm

So Moran wants to make alot of young boys legal.I’m not surprised.I’m sure this has something to do w/ gay marriage but i’m not sure how yet.

Gordito on December 21, 2011 at 10:23 pm

Isn’t Chipotle owned by McDonalds? No wonder…I can’t recall a single McDonald where the drive thru employee was anything but what looks like a Mexican, especially where I live. Glad I don’t eat any of that crap anyway.

Habib Akbarovich on December 21, 2011 at 10:37 pm

I’d like to know how Moran’s company is withholding income and employment taxes on the wages that are being paid to these illegals. They can’t obtain Social Security Numbers. This means that they are using fake SSNs. I guess Chipotle doesn’t care about that.

Jeff on December 21, 2011 at 10:44 pm

Thx! I appreciate knowing about places that support dumb-ass things because I avoid them. Conversely, I try to frequent only businesses that support what I consider to be American values.

GC on December 22, 2011 at 9:22 am

A colleague of mine got food poisoning at Chipolte a few days ago. the food is as bad as its politics. thanks, Debbie, for the whole truth.

bobguzzardi on December 22, 2011 at 10:01 am

More on Chipolte food poisoning. Kent, Ohio store closes

bobguzzardi on December 22, 2011 at 10:07 am

Somehow, I’ve always had a bad case of indigestion w/ Mexican food. I’m never comfortable when taken out to Mexican restaurants by colleagues. Nothing against them, just the way my anatomy reacts.

Infidel on December 22, 2011 at 1:51 pm

I’d never go back to Chipotle, not just because of politics, but the fact I paid $7+ for a steak burrito and there was two large, inedible/unchewable pieces of gristle/fat inside.

I stole one of their Tabasco bottles out of revenge. Easier than explaining to them that their food sucked.

Taco Bell’s “food” gets worse every year and their meat may be questionable, but I can’t recall ever getting inedible “steak” in their food.

Bury This Burrito Joint on December 22, 2011 at 6:35 pm

“This is are land?” That’s hard for me to even type.

La Raza thinks that this land is magic and possessing it will make them prosperous. When in reality it would become like the rest of Mexico. We’ve all seen how public housing quickly declines.

Allah non est Deus.

sg on December 23, 2011 at 1:33 pm

Corporate greed is correct, Chipotle is looking to hire back its slave labor force (Mexicans) and pay no benefits, after all “dose Messicans” dont need none, right boy? McDonald’s should be “silently” raided, plenty of illegals working in there kitchens.

Corporations that hire illegal aliens, Mexicans, and other Hispanics, should be forced to follow the DHS/HSI model hiring program: Hiring preference and promotions to Caucasians, both qualified and unqualified (well, mostly unqualified, but dey white), just use the Hispanics to translate and process for deportation, and do surveillances because they fit in, and the white agents might be spotted as cops. Corporations should also adopt the HSI model of testing for promotions, that way only the “best and brightest” are selected, just like in HSI, that way they can control the Hispanic population of managers, just like in HSI. This model can also be applied to the Black population of workers, just like in HSI. A Hispanic or Black doesn’t get hired and files a complaint? No problemo, the best defense is already well documented: They didn’t pass the test! Of course even if they did (and they do) they still don’t get selected because….the old standby “they ain’t qualified” defense, so there!

So you see, my friends, with the HSI model of selection and promotion of employees only the best and brightest are selected and that is what makes HSI run so well, the crown jewel of all federal investigative agencies, the pride and joy of DHS. And that will definitely solve the problem of hiring illegal aliens, you don’t see any illegal aliens working at DHS/HSI do you?

While La Raza,Aztlan,Lulac,Maldef…crap there are a bunch of leftist spanish organizations representing this ideology,they are the loudest voice screaming for attention,they certainly do not represent me and frankly as a hispanic I am ashamed of such organizations using our ethnicity for such shameful purposes.

Juan on January 30, 2012 at 11:18 am

I worked in the food service industry,and yes high turnover rate is expected, as a manager we were prepared,as far as I knew all employees were legal, pre-everify all you could do was check all i.d. and ss cards and it worked for us,so why this Chipotle guy thinks he and his company is above the law?…. I am so angry about these organizations giving hispanics a bad name…. BTW I am an american ethnicity doesn t matter to me,it matters only to those who divide us in different groups usually for their own benefit. Piss on Chipotle and crap on it s management and owners… I hate them all. miserables despreciables.

Juan on January 30, 2012 at 11:27 am

I am a dominican american who worked at a
chipotle in new york. First off I dont see
my.self superior to a person if he or she is
illegal but when I worked in chipotle
I was 1 of 3 dominicans the rest were
mexicans very hard working and for the
most part real polite. But when I met
2 of the kitchen managers who were rude
spoke very little to no english like the rest
i knew It was time to search for another job
i got it and quit asap this is america though I

spanish these guys were most likely illegal
only person who spoke english was the gm
she was real sweet as well.but im not gonna work under some one who rude plus illegal

Jason rivera on July 25, 2012 at 1:11 pm

Wow, there are quite a few sad and hateful comments here. I don’t like having so many illegal aliens here, I don’t like mexican food, nor do I support gay marriage, however, it would be nice, perhaps even Christian, to stop with all the immature, mean name calling. I’m afraid its a window into many hearts. I hope folks don’t think this ugliness is reflective of American values.

In legal terms, unfair termination does not necessarily point out
a “wrongful” employment practice.

Be careful what you sign – No matter how much pressure you receive from your Employer, DON’T
sign anything they put in front of you—-this specifically applies to the termination of your contract; this is because once you sign it your
Employer can use it as concrete evidence of your
termination date—which can limit your right to argue unfair
dismissal. They will be illegal if the new child labor law passes.
