Rosa Linda Mexican Cafe Receives Death Threats For Refusing Mitt Romney Visit

The owners of Rosa Linda Mexican Cafe in Denver, Colorado have received death threats, hate calls and fake orders, all because they refused to allow Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney to make campaign stop.

The son of the owners, Oscar Aguirre, told told KMGH-TV New Media Producer Wayne Harrison: “One person who called said, ‘Watch your back. We know where live and we’re going after you. We just didn’t want our business used as a campaign stop.”

"We did say ‘no’ because we are not Republicans, nor are we Democrats. We will welcome any sitting President of the United States. But, we did not want to be a campaign stop."

Aguirre added: "Two people ordered $150 worth of food for lunch to be picked up today. They called later and said, ‘Oh, you’re the one who doesn’t want Romney in your business’ and they canceled their orders, even though the food had been prepared."

Aguirre said the fury began after an article in the Denver Westword reported that their mother had refused the Romney campaign’s offer because "religion and politics don’t mix."
