I heard this businessman interviewed on Fox. He is the epitome of the average American worker. "A South Florida man who claims he's being evicted from his place of business because he speaks no Spanish – just English – says he will move out, as he's suddenly become the focus of national debates over illegal immigration and property rights."

Tom McKenna's Seacoast Water sign in Stuart, Fla., is the only one of three businesses in his plaza in English (WND photo)"I wouldn't want to stay here among the current climate," Tom McKenna, owner of Seacoast Water Care in Stuart, Fla., told WND.
The businessman is getting requests from media outlets across America to tell the story of how his landlord at the Ellendale Center wants him out of his office space by the end of the month, in order to "complete [his] vision of converting the center to quality tenants serving the Spanish need in the area."
"I guess I don't serve the 'Spanish need,' whatever that means," McKenna told the Stuart News in a story published Sunday. Since then, the saga has been prominently featured on websites including WND and the Drudge Report, and now McKenna is making the rounds on the television-news circuit, both on Florida stations as well as national shows such as CNN's "Glenn Beck."
McKenna insists to WND he has been a good tenant for some seven years, always paying his rent on time.
"That's just a kick in the face to me," he told WPBF-TV, the ABC affiliate in West Palm Beach. "Because somebody comes in here and says, 'Hey, you know I like that corner store where that Seacoast Water is there, and now we have a full-service plaza serving the Spanish needs in here, we need to get him out of there."
