Why are we taking this?
Take a hard look at this photo from the April demonstrations.......and consider the implications!
Monday, May 1, 2006 will be a defining day for the United States of America.
Illegal immigrants and their supporters are organizing "A Day Without Latinos" and a "National Day Without Immigrants," a May Day boycott in an attempt to negatively impact the U.S. economy.
Are we to remain a nation of laws....
Or are we to become a nation held hostage by outlaws and anarchy?
Are we going to hand our hard-won country over to Mexican illegal immigrants who march to demand rights and privileges to which they are not entitled...rights and privileges they are not demanding and working for in their native Mexico....
Or will we maintain the rights and privileges accorded to legal U.S. citizens?
The protestors and their supporters are going to try to close our major cities by not showing up for work, skipping school and marching in mass in city centers.
They are going to close businesses.....many greedy and exploitive employers are only too eager to encourage the demonstrations so they can continue to take advantage of their illegal immigrant employees with substandard wages and no benefits. We, the taxpayers pick up the bill for their health care, education and other social services.
Our Congress, vote hungry Democrats and corporate-loving Republicans, pander to the illlegals, they show up at their pro-Latino protest rallies, as Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) did in April. The Senate in California this week voted to support the May 1 protest!
The "tax exempt" Catholic church helped organize the protests.....priests in Chicago, for example, are sending information to all 375 parishes in the archdiocese.
And, our so-called President, George "U.S. Taxpayers Last" Bush, seeks to grant amnesty to illegals.
Even the people in Mexico and Central America are mounting a campaign for a 24-hour boycott Monday for all things "gringo".....McDonald's, Starbucks, Sears, Wal-Mart......you get the idea.
The LA Times reports "Many Mexicans are closely following the immigration debate in the United States. There is a growing sense among Mexicans that proposals being debated by the U. S. Congress could hurt millions of compatriots who crossed over illegally."...and, we should add, who send their wages back to Mexico.
In Ciudad Juarez, across the border from El Paso, the Chamber of Commerce announced that its 5,000 members would neither buy nor sell U.S. products on Monday.
And the final in-your-face....on Monday we will be hearing the Star Spangled Banner sung in Spanish!
If you aren't mad enough by now to contact your elected representatives, then you must be an illegal immigrant, or a corporate CEO benefiting from cheap labor.
Or the President of Mexico, Vincente Fox, who is taking over a superpower without firing a shot!
