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.
