Customer refuses to tip waitress based on perceived (incorrectly) immigrant status

Here we go, with a horrible story on anti-immigrant bias.  In Harrisonburg VA, a couple writes on a restaurant check for a meal served by a Hispanic-looking woman, “We only tip citizens.”  The waitress is a native born American citizen.  She even says she would serve the couple again.
Presumably, as a job applicant she would have to show a Social Security card (normal for citizens), passport, or a green card or visa.
