A Day Without Immigrants Protests Planned for Thursday. Up Next, a Day Without Women.
Miami Herald ^ | FEBRUARY 15, 2017 | BRIAN MURPHY

Posted on 02/15/2017 5:42:22 PM PST by nickcarraway

Immigrant organizers are planning a general strike Thursday,

A “Day Without Immigrants” protests are planned across the United States, in response to Trump’s promises to build a wall across the country’s Southern border and deport millions of undocumented immigrants. Some schools and restaurants are planning to close Thursday to allow the students and workers to participate.

Celebrity chef Jose Andres plans to close his five restaurants, he told NPR.

“It was an easy decision,” said Andres, who emigrated to the United States in 1991 from Spain and is now a citizen. “It seems immigrants, especially Latinos, it seems we are under attack.”

Now, perhaps taking their cue from a “Day Without Immigrants,” organizers of the Women’s March have set March 8th for their next national event – General Strike: “A Day Without A Woman.”

March 8 is International Women’s Day.

The post indicates the strike is “in the spirit of women and their allies coming together for love and liberation.”

Millions of people participated in marches across the country and world on Jan. 21, one day after President Donald Trump took office. The march in Washington, D.C., was the largest, attracting hundreds of thousands of demonstrators.

The protesters did not have specific demands, though many objected to Trump, who was accused of sexual assault and/or harassment by nearly a dozen women who alleged the encounters occurred years before. Trump bragged about being able to kiss and touch women without their consent on a 2005 “Access Hollywood” tape that was released weeks before the election.

In an editorial in The Guardian, eight feminist activists wrote about the purpose of a strike.

“The idea is to mobilize women, including trans women, and all who support them in an international day of struggle – a day of striking, marching, blocking roads, bridges, and squares, abstaining from domestic, care and sex work, boycotting, calling out misogynistic politicians and companies, striking in educational institutions. These actions are aimed at making visible the needs and aspirations of those whom lean-in feminism ignored: women in the formal labor market, women working in the sphere of social reproduction and care, and unemployed and precarious working women.”

“Celebrity chef Jose Andres plans to close his five restaurants, he told NPR.”

He can close them forever as far as I’m concerned. If he doesn’t want to hire fellow countrymen, let him open up restaurants in Mexico where he would have a large pool of the cheap labor he so desires.

I don’t know if any of the illegal invaders in my area will be staying away from their restaurant jobs. I think I may eat at Chik-fil-a, which has all-American young people staffing their facilities in my area.

It’s a protest?

Hmm, I thought it was a f’n CELEBRATION to not have to deal with illegal aliens. Even if it’s just for one day!

Legal immigration is fine, ILLEGAL immigration is despicable and evil.

Thursday is a nothing day for restaurants. Most people go out to lunch on Friday and out to dinner Friday and Saturday night. Nobody will even notice they are gone.

I think we should record who is closed so we can direct ICE to the right places

Gee I don’t think President Trump has ever kissed or touched any men ...

I think this protest is a bit excessive seeing President Trump is not guilty of homosexuality...

he likes women...always has...

See what they did there? “...without their consent.”

What he said was the women who are gold diggers and attention hos and star-fuxxers would ALLOW a male star to “grab them by the....”. ALLOW. I am certain he said that. He was amazed at what these women would allow from a famous male.

I will work that day, clean the house, cook and generally take care of my husband and fur kids. I will not be out trying to make anyone’s life difficult.

We can not support his restaurants permanently!!!StupidFool. Another good reason to be suspect of “New” Americans who stick to the “OLD” nationalities instead of their new nationality. I would revoke his citizenship just to make an example out of him and ship him back to wherever he came from. He swore to uphold the constitution of the USA when he became a citizen. That means supporting our president and our government.

No one is opposed to immigrants.

The MSM is the one spinning Trumps words to portray him and the rest of us Deplorables, as against all immigrants.

It's Illegal Aliens, especially Illegal Criminal Aliens that we oppose. Seal the border, expel them.

The problem is that the Dems and Socialists want to call anyone crossing our border an “immigrant”. Anything to destroy our sovereignty and borders. This is pure Newspeak right out of “1984”.

If you were to go back 60 years and tell the leadership of the Congress, and the DNC what the Democrat Party will morphed into, they would tell you that you are crazy. Yet the seeds of sedition and the eventual morphing of the DNC into a Socialist Criminal Enterprise were being planted at that time.

On second thought, why not make it a week or a month or even a whole year without liberals. Hell, why don't all you liberals just leave for good and don't come back?

I'd go along with that protest. Works for me.
