A Day Without Immigrants
Poor things! The illegal invaders had a bit of a scare in Montgomery County, Maryland. From the April 30, 2006 Washington Post item "Montgomery Schools: Immigrant Students Reassured":
"The Montgomery County school system is urging students to go to school [May 1], disputing rumors that undocumented immigrants would be arrested if they do.Isn't it nice to know that Montgomery County Public Schools System and the Montgomery County Police Department have assured the illegal invaders that they will not be rounded up? Your tax dollar at work!
"In a news release, school officials acknowledged widespread rumors of arrests in conjunction with a business boycott to protest proposed legislation to tighten U.S. borders.
"Schools spokesman Brian Edwards said that several schools had received calls from parents. County police also released a statement dispelling rumors of mass raids against undocumented immigrants in the county."
The following is an email I received this morning:
"Please don't forget that today, Monday, May 1st, is the day the illegal members of our country and those who symphasize with them have declared to be a national day of 'No Spending Whatsoever.' It's been all over the news and in the papers. The intent is to show how much power they have in their ability to cripple our nation's economy for a day in order to influence immigration legislation. As American citizens who want some constraints and controls, and who do not wish to give these people the power to ruin our economy on Monday, please go out for breakfast, go out for lunch, go out for dinner. Take in a movie. Buy a new dress and shoes. Buy a new car. If you have been planning to buy a tv, or any large purchase, do it on Monday. Show them that they cannot cripple us, not even for a day. Please drown out the statement they are trying to make with a statement of our own. This is our country, and you don't run it. Your boycott will not be noticed. We will show how little power you actually have because your boycott will not work. You will not cripple our economy - not even for one day and especially not on Monday, May 1st, 2006."So which will it be today — a victory for the rule of law or a victory on the part of illegal invaders? Because that's what "undocumented workers" are — illegal invaders!
Note: Did you notice all the American flags in the previous demonstration? According to the Austin-American Statesman, after the demonstration last month in Austin, Texas, those American flags were tossed into the trash. Get the message?
