A Border Patrol employee posted a sign outside of a government building in the border town of Presidio, Texas, that reserved Halloween candy for “America families” only.

The sign, written in Spanish, translated to, “Only American families will receive candy,” the New Civil Rights Movement reports.  [2]

The town of Presidio is more than 87% Hispanic.

CBP quickly apologized, saying it supports all cultures.

“We respect all people regardless of their culture, nationality or origin. We apologize for any harm this incident may have created in our relationship with the community,” the statement read.

Residents were outraged and offended, including the mayor, John Ferguson, who said he’s never been excluded from holiday celebrations in Mexico.
