(Newser) – Hackers added their bit to mounting US tensions over immigrant rights by switching a digital highway sign in Florida to flash "no Latinos" and "no tacos." The flashing messages greeted drivers on the Palmetto Expressway near Miami until police and a highway crew turned the signs around and changed the messages. The sign messages are controlled through a password-protected computer site, according to NBC Miami. Police are continuing to investigate.
