    Bourdain, Trump Feud Heats Up: CNN Star Blasts 'The Donald' on Immigration Stance

    November 1, 2015

    The Bourdain, Trump feud is heating up after it has been reported that the CNN star blasted “The Donald” for his stance on immigration. Bourdain believes a Donald Trump presidency would spell disaster for the restaurant industry, Time magazine reports. Anthony Bourdain — who is a chef, author, and television personality — has made it clear that he is not a fan of Donald Trump and his reason for not supporting the presidential candidate for the Republican party is simple: Bourdain believes that if Donald Trump becomes president, every restaurant in the country will have to close its doors.

    Bourdain now joins the long list of celebrities such as Chef José Andrés, actor Antonio Banderas and singer Ricky Martin, who defend the work done by undocumented immigrants in the United States and expresses disapproval toward the anti-immigrant discourse used by billionaire businessman Donald Trump during his campaign for the GOP presidential nomination.

    The so-called “bad boy” of the restaurant industry strongly criticized Trump’s comments made earlier this year regarding Mexican immigrants. As Think Progress pointed out, Bourdain had some harsh words for Trump during a recent appearance on SiriusXM’s StandUp with Pete Dominick. To those unfamiliar with Trump’s insensitive remarks, the following text is an excerpt from what he said back in July.

    “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”

    Trump’s comments sparked an immediate wave of criticism from Americans who do not share the same views as him, including those in the immigrant community. During the interview, Bourdain referred to undocumented immigrants as the “backbone of the industry,” and said that in the majority restaurants he’s worked in, “the person who’d been there the longest, who took the time to show me how it’s done was always Mexican or Central American.”

    “I rolled out of a prestigious culinary institute and went to work in real restaurants. I walked into restaurants and always, the person who had been there the longest, who took the time to show me how it was done, was always Mexican or Central American. The backbone of the industry — meaning most of the people in my experience cooking, preparing your food. Twenty of those years in this business I was an employer, I was a manager employer.”

    Bourdain said he understood “the value” of the work of undocumented workers and the business would be nothing without them. When asked about what he thought of the work ethic of undocumented immigrants, he claimed immigrant workers were often more willing to “just start at the bottom” than American workers were.

    He added that in his many years of industry experience, he’s seen very few job applications by Americans willing to begin at low-level positions.

    “Never in any of those years… did any American-born kid walk into my restaurant and say, ‘I’d like a job as a night porter, or a dishwasher, even a prep cook,'” Bourdain was quoted as saying.

    Well, I've been around for a few years and remember when American-born kids were in these jobs. It's that for so long these kind of jobs have been taken over (in my state anyway) and the kids know this.

    Probably some of the American kids are figuring on getting a college degree, getting their debt forgiven, inheriting a trust fund, having a well vested retirement. Ignorance is bliss.

    Two of my children helped put themselves through college doing shift work in the food industry.

    Ive worked in restaurants for most of my adult life. In fact, my first over the table job was as a sandwich maker in a deli. Later I drove to deliver pizzas and did so through most of college years and even after college to make ends meet!

    Anthony Bourdain supports illegal immigrants and illegal aliens and his name along with Chef José Andrés, actor Antonio Banderas and singer Ricky Martin will permanently be associated with the ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION INVASION OF AMERICA and all of the stolen jobs, rapes, murders, and welfare abuse that comes with that invasion they are fighting to protect.

    My first job was cleaning hotel rooms too which is a job American-born kids don't even consider today here. And we hear teen unemployment is high. We know what a lot of the reason for that is.

    I would think that room cleaning is something that would be better---from any angle---subcontracted. The hotels would not be carrying employees, which is expensive, and it seems like it could be profitable enough to become a small business. You may think it's drudgery but trust me there are an awful lot of jobs that are MUCH harder. A sensible person would opt for working inside with cleaning agents over outside in the elements with dangerous and toxic substances. I don't see what the economic sense is of hotel chains having these people on a payroll. What do you think?
