"Without Us, Your Country Is Paralyzed" - Undocumented Workers Plan Boycott "Day Without Immigrants"
Zero Hedge ^ | 2-15-2017 | Tyler Durden

Posted on 02/15/2017 5:54:41 PM PST by blam

As we noted over the weekend, one of the immediate consequences of the Trump immigration executive order - and one which has so far gone largely unchallenged - has been a crackdown against illegal immigrants residing in the US. Following reports that first surfaced over the weekend that US immigration officials had launched countrywide raids and arrested hundreds of illegal aliens across the nation as a result of that immigration executive order, President Trump weighed in on Twitter, stating that "the crackdown on illegal criminals is merely the keeping of my campaign promise. Gang members, drug dealers & others are being removed!"

But, as it turns out, the "undocumented immigrants" are not going down without a fight.

Per a flyer that has been floating around the migrant farmworker community in California, illegal immigrants are planning "A Day Without Immigrants Boycott" for tomorrow. As part of the effort to demonstrate how vital illegal immigrants to the U.S. economy, "undocumented, residents, citizens, immigrants from all over the world" are encouraged to participate in the protest as follows:

◦Do NOT attend work
◦Do NOT open up our businesses
◦Do NOT shop online or in stores
◦Do NOT eat at restaurants
◦Do NOT buy gas
◦Do NOT attend class
◦Skip School
◦Do NOT send children to school

The flyer also has a direct message for President Trump:

"Without us and our contribution this country is paralyzed!!!!"

"We might lose a day of work but we will WIN so much more."

This should make if very east for employers to identify if someone is an illegal. Just watch for those that don’t show up.

So far they are only deporting criminals.
Do these people really want to keep criminals in this country?

I remember when they did this once before, less traffic and no crowds, seemed like a better country for a day.

There was a pretty good Mexican restaurant near us, and when there was one of these "day withouts" - it was about ten or twelve years ago, IIRC - they were closed for the day. I'm not sure if they ever re-opened, as we simply didn't drive over there again; what I do know is that they were gone for good and the building was for rent about a month after their show of solidarity.

The food was good, but we managed without it.

Gomer Pyle time— “Citizen’s Arraest”. We will all take notes on who goes on strike. Will make identification to ICE all the more easier. Muchas Gracias, and uh, “”Shukran, Hamid, ya aziza.”. RF tracking chip subcutaneous installation to follow.

Yes, and, and, whatever you do, make sure you picket with big signs saying “I’m a criminal migrant, and I have rights. You ugly, smelly policemen aren’t allowed to touch me.”

This could be an incredible time saver.

Just document who doesn’t show up and give their address to ICE.

Hopefully, there will be many, many citizens who will be amazed when they see the plethora of jobs that will become available when the illegals are removed.

From what I have been observing the US economy is about to boom and happy days will soon be here again.

MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!!!

A neighborhood high school kid meows my lawn since the last one who did went off to college. Here in SW Pennsylvania, most of the fast food places are staffed by high school aged kids. We are so hopelessly old fashioned, LOL!

Yep, I’ve got a mower, a weed whacker and a leaf blower. No need for illegal alien criminals whatsoever.

Those hardest hit will be the employers who hired them, and I don’t much care if they have a bad day. They should have hired Americans instead.

USING ANY KIND of fake document in order to be here in the USA is a felony. They are using fake social security numbers/cards-—birth certs—getting driver’s licenses with fake documents—a daisy chain of felonies. That IS criminal. I am not sure if it is also a felony to be here without permission, also.

Someone on FR must know.
