NEW MEXICO - A business in New Mexico is under fire for reportedly posting controversial messages around its storefront.
A convenience store in the town of Mayhill has a notice posted on its door reportedly stating, "Obama & other Muslims Not welcome here.”
Last year, an image stating "Kill Obama" was reportedly posted in one of the store’s windows.
A former employee told a local affiliate that similar signs have been posted for a long time, and are sold to customers who are interested in them, including “Obama toilet paper.”
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, urged the business to remove the signs.
“While everyone has the First Amendment right to free speech – even offensive speech – we urge the store’s owner to remove the sign in the interest of common decency and of our nation’s unity at a time of increasing divisions,” said CAIR National Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper.
