    Now that immigrants have grabbed the nation's attention, what next?

    Monday has been set aside for immigrants to boycott work, school and shopping to show how much they matter to their communities. But with some growing tired of street protests, and others afraid they'll be deported or fired for walking out, people are planning to support the effort in myriad ways.

    Some will work but buy nothing on Monday. Others will protest at lunch breaks or at rallies after work. There will be church services, candlelight vigils, picnics and human chains.

    The range of activities shows both how powerful the immigrants' rights movement has become in a matter of weeks, and that organizers don't yet have a clear focus on its next step.

    ______________________________________________

    Most work places that have high numbers of aliens in their workforce will be closed on Monday. These people who are protesting are free to do what they want as long as it is in a law abiding manner.
    If it were naturalized American citizens protesting against illegal immigration , I wonder if they might recieve the same consideration. It just seems to me that these hispanic protestors recieve a lot of special attention to their cause while many underprivileged citizens of this country are ignored.

    Muslims are joining the Latinos for the walk out today.

    http://www.ciogc.org/pages/Media/3004/pageDetailPB.html

    Strange. We never saw American Muslims taking to the streets en masse to protest over 09/11, yet they've joined up with the illegals. Could it be there are higher numbers of illegal Muslims in America than what we've been told?

    American citizens, UNITE! SHOP today and continue working all those jobs that they say we won't do....Why aren't American citizens taking to the streets in protest over illegal aliens? The polls say we want illegals deported, by a vast majority. Yet we are sitting back and letting those who have broken and continue to break the law dictate to us their so-called "rights!" WAKE UP, America! Write your Senators & Congressmen today!

    And join the boycott on Tyson foods & Hormel foods - their plants will be closed today because they hire so many illegal aliens!

    Also, a boycott is going on for McDonalds and Burger King - who hire illegal aliens and who are corporate sponsors, contributing to help finance the radical groups who seek to take over our country!

    PLUS - Today, May 1, is the day Communists have designated to take up the "red flag."

    From commie/socialist web site:

    I don't find this to be coincidence - a date picked by the illegal aliens that coincides with this. Everyone who researches this knows these radical groups are backed by socialists. And we are supporting them with our tax dollars because they are "minorities."

    The Legislators are not listening to us!

    When do we get to protest?

    They *know* we canm't walk off our jobs because we'd be fired in a heartbeat beacuse the economy's so great that there are six people waiting to take over even High Tech Jobs!

    Would to God our legislators would take this to heart!

    Hebrews 11:25 Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;

    Instead of sinning against their own laws and country...

    If I employed immagrants and they didn't work today, they'd be fired tomorrow. There are plenty of people looking for jobs here.

    Whereas I, if I employed them, would support their cause.

    Daisy,

    Does it not bother you that these people illegally entered our country? I don't like that many businesses are hiring them...but does that make the ends justify the means?


    Further question: could you, as a Christian, rightfully employ them? Wouldn't you be in rebellion to authorities?

    No gasoline for the fire here...just honest questions.

    Lots of immigrant workers here in our community... most of them legal I'll assume. The economy here is such that if you don't work, you don't eat. Plenty of people, not enough jobs. I'd say if anyone doesn't show up today, they can just go on down to unemployment... and if they're illegal, that's gonna be a problem too.

    Just watched a press conference on CSPAN 2 concerning illegal immigration moderated by(Ret.) Col. Al Rodriguez I didn't get to catch much of the Q&A session. The group that was there are members from a group called "You Don't Speak For Me" which include a cross section of the Hispanic American community.
    They put forth a message that concerned Americans need to hear on the real truth about illegal immigration.

    The Dan Stein Report also contains a lot of truth reporting on illegal immigration.
    http://www.steinreport.com/

    Those who are protesting today just want us to see only one face of illegal immigration, that of poor families wanting a better way of life. But in truth illegal immigration has many faces, one being the criminal element that pollutes this country with their presence and this is why we need current immigration laws enforced so that Americans can have the protection that is due to us.

    From The Dan Stein Report:

    What we are seeing today is ANARCHY, USA, folks. Our government is impotent to stop the madness - we no longer live under the Rule of Law and our elected officials know it.

    Mark this day on your calendars because it will go down as a significant turning point in the crumbling end of America as we once knew it.

    "These people"? I married one of "these people"; so no, it really doesn't bother me.

    I'm not clear here which ends and means you're referring to. As a general principle, I'd say 'no', but in a specific case, I'd have to know the specifics before answering.

    Yes, I could rightfully employ them but not exploit them.

    Matthew 12. And the whole love & charity thing - treating all people humanely.

    I don't think the issue is so black and white. What I find odd is that it seems like the same people who don't want illegal aliens to do work here also don't want the jobs to go there - "Us four, no more" kind of attitude.

    I reckon that these businesses that are shut down for today are, for the most part, doing so because they have hired illegal aliens? If so, then the federal government should be at these places of business tomorrow morning to round up any illegal aliens for deportation as well as heavily fining anyone employing illegal aliens.

    Daisy, illegally entering our country violates our laws. I'm not sure I understand why it doesn't concern you.

    And you're stretching the "love and charity" thing a long way...giving them food, shelter, etc. is one thing. Enabling them to break the law is another. I guess when your mind's made up already, you'll find a reason...

    Fortunately, it concerns quite a few Americans. Hopefully, our representatives will get the point. (though I doubt it)

    You can bet your last dollar these 'immigrants' will get their way.
    The liberal media is on their side.
    Notice how the news says 'immigrants' hold rallies ?
    If they are 'immigrants' then they are legal, otherwise they are illegal aliens, not immigrants.
    An immigrant is one who came through the front door of any country, with papers to show that he has been given the right to stay, work, and live in that country, and share almost all of the benefits of a naturalized or natural born citizen of that country, except to vote and work in some sensitive jobs.
    An illegal alien on the other hand is someone who came in deceptively through the front door (tourist who becomes illegal), or the back door.
    Yet media is lumping them all under the category of 'immigrants'.
    Just a thought, DC and most parts of Maryland seem a little quieter and pleasanter. In some parts of Prince Georges county, I actually hear English again, and see more white and african american faces again.
