Parents lash out as daycare closes in support of immigration strike
The Sacramento Bee ^ | February 16th, 2017 | By Liz Farrell, Mandy Matney

Posted on 02/16/2017 4:27:31 PM PST by Mariner

BLUFFTON, S.C.- Lauren Malphrus pulled up to the Little Steps Daycare and Preschool in Bluffton around 7:30 a.m. Thursday with her 3-year-old son, Asa, and saw that the windows were darkened.

Confused, she turned back to her car, and soon found that the daycare had closed for the day in support of “A Day Without Immigrants,” a national strike in which immigrants are boycotting work, school and businesses in response to President Donald Trump’s immigration stance and in an effort to show their economic influence in the community.

“Why didn’t they tell me?” she asked loudly. “Why didn’t they call the parents? I’ve got to go to work!”

Malphrus, who was visibly upset, instructed Asa to get in the car and called Asa’s father, hoping he could take their son so she could go to work at J&R Ice Cream Co.

“So it’s closed,” she told him. “And I had no clue until I got here this morning. ... This is so ridiculous. So ridiculous.”

Little Steps, a bilingual daycare, made the closing announcement on its Facebook page Wednesday night as a part of “A Day Without Immigrants” campaign.

Lucky parents. Now they know what sort of place their poor child was in. Now they know to never return.

I bet not many parents pull out, too much trouble to find a new place.

In the Fort Myers, FL, one daycare did the same thing (others did not), parents were outraged. I don’t expect this daycare to stay open much longer.

Are there illegals working there? Some LEOs should look into that.

If you have ever been married to a woman dependent on daycare you would know:

1. you don’t get a vote
2. any daycare that will keep her kids alive and is on her way to and from work is the daycare you will pay for

They always forget the word illegal in front of the word immigration for some reason.

Get rid of the illegal alien invaders, including the ones that run or work at the day care facility, and the continuous rape of Federal, state, and local taxpayer money goes away. Cut taxes massively, put money back in individuals’ pockets, and only one wage earner needed. No need for day care, spouse becomes full time housewife & mother, man brings home the bacon, wife meets man at the door with drink, slippers, & dinner ready, children & pets happy, everyone happy.

SADLY, YOUR STATEMENTS ARE TRUE. We need to rethink this working mothers thing. That will get me in hot water with mothers but there is no substitute for raising you own.

Where i live I heard on local talk radio that a local business owner had to close today because his employees were not showing up because of “Day with No Immigrants”. He called in to say he was going to open tomorrow, fire the delinquent employees for not coming to work and hire new people.

His comment made my day.

If I had a kid going to this particular day care I would pull them out IMMEDIATELY if not sooner. If they got illegals working there who knows what other laws they're willing to break. Just sayin'

Daycare is a leading cause of criminality. Separating a child from his mother in childhood is child abuse.

Okay, this is CA. In most states workers in daycare have to pass a background check. I’m betting CA doesn’t have such rules.

A man who is fully supporting his wife and kids staying at home, is also supporting at least one other family he has never met and would not like.

How many men can afford that?

That’s the price we pay for not shaming the sluts who have kids but have never been married. And for not letting them fend for themselves.

And no, I don’t care if I’m talking about your daughter...

Yep, and it would be just so boring to stay home and take care of their precious children themselves.

Why, when the average worker is about 10 times more productive than in 1955, is it now impossible for the average man to support a stay-at-home wife, in a house with a yard, etc.

Easy: government regulations that cost the average worker $30,000/year, exorbitant taxes, etc.

All of it designed to destroy the family.

This mother — and now grandmother — agrees with you. It all started going down hill when women started buying into the belief by many men that staying home to raise one’s own children was not real work.

Day Without an Immigrant.

I celebrated. Stayed home today and watched Braveheart while wearing my kilt and knocking back Scotch.

It was glorious!

Hopefully these parents will find a new daycare that doesn’t celebrate illegal immigration.

If fewer women dumped their small children in daycare, we'd have much less crime, drug-addiction, and suicide.

Daycare is terrible for children. It disrupts the bond between child and parents. With the most vulnerable children, this can cause irreparable damage.

To be well brought up, healthy, and secure enough to grow up to be independent adults, children need to be in their own homes with a loving mother, at least until age 5.

When your child day-care center begins political activism, it’s time to go somewhere else.

I was blessed not to HAVE to work; but I simply did
without all the fancy clothes, cars & other stuff. Then,
Fang went to work for himself doing field work (financial
investigations) for the court. I did his secretarial work
in that for about 30 years. Didn’t get rich; but ate
regularly & had enough to get by. Anybody who works for
the legal system and gets rich would be suspect, and
rightly so. - He was in danger at times.

Married? Here in Texas they say they are but oh no. getting married gets rid of gov benefits. Contrary to the upper class day care but I’ve seen as a grandfather the pop up day care centers trying to grab free gov money from single moms dropping their kids off for a low page job to qualify for earned income credit and child tax credits. The refunds are in the 1000s
