Skip to comments."Without Us, Your Country Is Paralyzed" - Undocumented Workers Plan Boycott "Day Without Immigrants"
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
◦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."

Yea yea. Bring me my margaritas and shut up.
Planning a trip to Home Depot first thing in the morning.
Won’t have to dodge all of the day laborers wandering the parking lot.
well if a Mexican restaurant , or business is closed then we know who to boycott and out them out of business.
Duplicate post of five below. Why post this again so soon?
I think they did this a few years ago. I recall it was one of the easiest drives to work I had had in a long time.
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.
Win what? Permanent hatred of the people who want you to leave anyway? This is headed for major conflict. Anyone who has to do with these people at all unless ansolutely necessary is very foolish.
“Yea yea. Bring me my margaritas and shut up.”
Jose has to leaf blow my sidewalk. Wait your turn..
Fine with me.
No one will notice.!!!
Boot ALL their illegal asses the hell out of the U.S.A.!
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.
How about a day without white guys:
No printing press
No baseball, football, basketball
IF it’s such a big deal, the, why is the flyer PRINTED IN ENGLISH?
Good way to identify businesses hiring illegals.
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.”
WooHoo, I was hoping traffic would be light and safer tomorrow in LA.
This could be an incredible time saver.
Just document who doesn’t show up and give their address to ICE.
Without them the country is paralyzed?
Let’s find out.
because this is astroturf.
What if they gave a boycott and nobody noticed?
Pray America woke
If Mexicans are so great why isn’t Mexico great??
I WELCOME away without immigrants, the Bastards!
This is a GREAT idea!! Then ICE will get an accurate Head-Count!! Way to go Illegals! Thanks for doing your civic duty and pointing yourselves out!
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!!!!!
looking forward to reduced traffic
Go back to Univision
We had one of these days 10 years ago or so in LA. Lovely day. Could take the freeway anywhere with no illegals on it.
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.
I would love to know how many illegals show up to work on Friday at white-faced businesses only to find out they no longer have their JOBS !!!
No plumbing (well, they won’t miss that)
No radios blaring accordion and tuba music (that’ll fix ‘em!)
Hey, Sanchez: I mow my own lawn and cook my own meals. Now STFU and GTFO. You make my wallet and my ass tired.
I cook my own food and I hired a white guy to do my lawn.. Does a good job too..
Excellent. I’ve been wanting an accurate count.
Let’s rebrand this nonsense: “NATIONAL DAY TO HONOR BUSINESSES WHO HIRE AMERICANS”
They’re already criminals by virtue of being ‘illegal’.
White guys and girls!
I can cook and pay a couple of white guys to handle the yard when it needs it.
He and his cohort were recommended by a relation.
I think they should all quit breathing too.
Thats the ticket, all illegal aliens quit living.
That will really teach us a lesson, and how!
Let them self- identify!
DAY WITHOUT Crime?
