‘We only tip citizens’

ed immigJohn Elledge 1 (2)

“We only tip citizens.”

That nasty comment was written on a food receipt at Jess’ Lunch, a popular downtown eatery in Harrisonburg, and left for Sadie Elledge, granddaughter of local attorney John Elledge. Sadie is an American of Mexican and Honduran descent. (See WHSV TV-3 video and article.)

We are a nation of immigrants and descendants of immigrants but some seem to have forgotten that their ancestors were once in those ranks of newly arrived immigrants.

“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.”
