Are Mexican restaurants banning Donald Trump supporters?

To put it lightly, Donald Trump's been harsh to our cousins below the southern border, calling them everything from "criminals" to "killers" to "rapists", and promising the American populace that he'll make Mexico pay to build a wall to keep Mexicans out of the US. To which Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto was all like:

 Kool-Aid Man would bust through that Mexican borer wall

So when posts started circulation on Facebook of anti-Trump signs at Mexican restaurants banning both Trump and his supporters, people took notice. And shared. Then share some more.

The thing is: The signs are fake... kinda.

One sign, posted at Taco Cabana in San Antonia, TX, says it would refuse to serve Trump and people who support his views. It also says "You can't have your taco and eat it, too" in case you weren't sure about the validity of the sign.

Social News Daily reached out to Taco Cabana who said the sign was "unauthorized" and that they don't want to get involved in the political process:

Taco Cabana’s first priority is to ensure our guests feel welcome to enjoy great tacos. Taco Cabana is not responsible for the placement of this unauthorized sign on our property. Other local restaurants in the San Antonio area have also been targeted. The sign has only appeared in one of our restaurants and we promptly removed the sign and have alerted all restaurants to remove any unauthorized signage.
— Todd Coerver, COO, Taco Cabana

Taco Cabana isn't the only restaurant hit by fake Trump signs. Mama Margies Mexican Cafe, also of San Antonio, was seen with this sign in it's window. 

Like Taco Cabana, they denied the sign was theirs and say they have video of the person that posted the letter.

Not even sure how one would tell the difference between one candidate's follower from another unless they strolled in decked in "Make America Great Again" hat or a "Feel the Bern" t-shirt. Or by majorly profiling the individual (don't do that).

Safe to say that, unlike Trump, you shouldn't believe everything you see on the Internet.
