Great example for children. If you don't like something you don't have to go to school or go to work. Just stay home! If you are here illegally you need to leave and come back legally. Just like my grandparnets did when they came from Portugal. I will fight for our country and its upstanding law abiding citizens. If you are breaking the law to get here how can you build a life of honesty and character? You can't as it will be built on a lie.
When are they going to stop this "no immigrants" propaganda? It's about "illegal immigrants" and there's a BIG DIFFERENCE PEOPLE! If I was a legal immigrant, I'd be pissed that they are trying to lump me into this circus. Why would a business that hires legal immigrants go along with this stupidity? It's as ridiculous as when the fast food workers (only fast food workers, no one else) deserve $15 an hour. Oh, and I love the demands...no ICE means no law enforcement. Hmmm, I wonder if they would like a country with no law enforcement?
And looking at all those empty schools?...makes me realize how much our tax dollars are going to educate illegal immigrants. If...legal immigrants decided to not go to school as well?, then shame on them for turning against a system and government that has helped them.
Ummm, really, is anyone listening to what Donald Trump is saying. He wants to get rid of ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS WITH CRIMINAL backgrounds!! All these parents that didn't send there kids to school, how many are legal and how many are illegal. How many are really paying taxes, both income and real estate, how many have a real social security number, how many of these employers paying these immigrants cash so they don't pay tax and insurance on them! I can go on with this!! I am a first generation Mexican American and my parents came here legally. They paid all the fees to become a resident and raised 6 kids!! They paid taxes for everything, income, house, etc!! i was raised in an all Mexican community, so I know first hand on how many come here illegally and get paid cash from these businesses!! So these protesters need to focus on becoming citizens and worry about protecting your children again these criminals YOUR PRESIDENT is trying to get rid of!!
ah a full day of not having fast food places., no donuts..coffee...pizza...tacos, or your dirty house cleaned...... I may have a breakdown from it all..OMG...can I do this all myself???? Can i function?Kids taking off from school just to get the day off....yes...really intelligent....and I guess all the libtard kids were out..not the ones who are hard workers and stay in school. YOU kids are the smarter ones, the ones who STAY in school..
.its encouraging to those of us who should stay at home and eat a nice dinner with our LEGAL Immigrant family...wondering what the heck is going on with this ridiculousness with these OTHERS who dont understand a word what the President is saying. ..
...........hmmm...yes...very detrimental to people who really really need this junk food, or their grass cut...or snow removed.........AND....talk about ignorance amongst the IMMIGRANTS...you lost a day of pay.!!!! HAHAHHA, yup thats really smart.....
......and ITS ILLEGAL CRIMINAL IMMIGRANTs YOU THICK HEADED MORONS, NOT LEGAL ONES, IF YOU ARE LEGAL you have nothing to worry about..........now its time to learn the English language too, its a very good time to do this.........and you all separate yourselves into a group that TOTALLY STANDS OUT, yes...sorts you all out into herds of stupidity and no common sense.........too bad we dont have dunce caps to pass around.
So the mothers that kept their kids home from school think that hurt us???? Why would I expect anything smart from them. They do not realize that can ill afford not to go to school? And she has to speak Spanish to the kid?
Did the businesses that supported this idiotic closing of their businesses pay their employees for lost wages? I would never enter these businesses ever again. The ALIENS have no rights to make any demands on any of us but we do of them.
The headlines/storylines should read:
"A Day Without ILLEGAL Immigrants"
I intentionally capitalized the word ILLEGAL, to be sure all of the leftist trolls, were unable to overlook the "operative" word, that galvanizes the intent of the recent EO!
As with the vast majority of the left, there is always one "operative" word left-out or added to the narrative. This is the crux of the most recent leftist phenomenon, also know as, Fake News!
Good to see that people realize that this "day without" didn't put the message across as planned (to disrupt lifes). Taking children out of school is denyig them an education, just shows another reason our schools system is failing when parents rather take children out of school then educate them. There are enough school holidays already and school year is too short.. All I saw in my area which has a big number of illegal immigrants was one closure, everyone else continued on as usual.
I've lived in the Midwest for 52 years and mistakenly allowed my driver's license to expire. I became aware of this situation when tendering my license to prove my identity, in order to cash a check from a customer of the bank. Since I didn't have an account at this bank, I had to prove my identity, in order to cash the check.
The point is, US citizens are subject to proving their identity in numerous scenarios in our society on a daily basis, but requiring illegal immigrants, to follow the same SOP, is considered discriminatory! This does not compute.
My grandparents were immigrated from Russia, they came here with children LEGALLY, they settled in PA, worked HARD saving money, moved to NJ, bought property and a Bar, WORKED hard for what they had, NO HANDOUTS, NO INTEREST FREE LOANS to start their business, it was all LEGALLY with HARD WORK!!! GET IT!!!
Living in the Detroit area, I do business with MANY American's who came here as legal immagrants. They are some of the MOST patriotic people I have ever known! My grandparents were LEGAL immigrants. They were so proud to be Americans that they actually named my father "George Washington" (first and middle name). I have a feeling that if my grandfather was still alive he would have given these idiots a PERMANENT day off, as would many of my friends who own businesses that I mentioned with whom I do business.
If you are not an illegal immigrant, get back to school & work. In doing so, each individual should provide proof of citizenship. Perhaps a nationwide reset is appropriate, whereby every business & educational institution closes for a day, i.e. a national holiday and the next day, only those with proper & current citizenship status, are allowed back on the job or in the classroom.
If you came into this country legally and became a United States citizen then you are welcome. If you came in here illegally and do not have United States citizenship or a green card then I hope ICE comes for you and your family and sends you back where you came from.
This is what these sorry anti-American bottom-feeding scum do!! When they know they don't have a leg to stand on, they take the whole thing out of context and put a whole new FALSE context to it. They can't argue against CRIMINAL ILLEGAL ALIENS-FELONS in our contry so they try to make this into something it definitely is not-hate of immigrants. We have no problem with immigrants. They respect our country and our laws to enter by legal means. Illegal aliens are called thus because their mere presence in our country is a crime. If you stand for the rights of criminal illegal aliens-rapists, drug dealers, child molesters, robbers, etc. then you are a traitor of the worst sort and an enemy of the state and in my opinion you should be held and treated as such. I say arrest them every last one and send them and their kids back to where they came from in the first place. I also say arrest and prosecute to the fullest extent of the law any entity that shields them from ICE and immigration law.
I'd start posting resumes on the door to show how many Americans need jobs. Like everyone has said, it's the illegal ones he's trying to get rid of not the legal immigrants. Start calling it for what it is. My family are immigrants and came here legally. How unfair for my family and others who have. Liberals are proving each day that liberalism is a mental disorder.
There was a day without women? Hadn't noticed, but this day without "immigrants" was great, the traffic was better and store lines were shorter. We should have one of those at least three times a week, helps the people who actually make society run have easier drives on the highways and freeways.
A day isn't going to make any difference. Take off a month and watch how quickly you are replaced. Put your fist in a bucket of water. Remove your fist and the size of the hole you left in the bucket of water is how much you will be missed. We've had Kmart, Sears, Macys, Best Buy, Steel City Flooring, Trader Horn, and a few other stores close down recently in our neighborhood. Believe it or not, life went on and people found other places to shop. Didn't miss a beat.
As usual, the Progressive Leftists blur the true issue, trying to make it seem more severe... by saying without immigrants instead of illegal immigrants. So who lost their pay? Immigrants. Who got a bad mark for missing school? Immigrants. Who 2was unfairly punished by this selfish attempt to smear President Trump? LEGAL Immigrants.
WHAT A PACK OF LIBERAL CRAP!!!!! No one is complaining about LEGAL immigrants! The VAST MAJORITY of people in the US are the decedents of LEGAL immigrants. I don't care where your family origin was, if you are here legally and desire to assimilate into American culture, obey the laws, and become a good American citizen ... YOU ARE WELCOME! I would be proud to shake your hand or even hug you in welcome! If you wish to do harm to this nation or it's people, or violate it's laws ... just leave before we have to hunt you down and throw you back over the border! BTW, our immigration system is part of the laws of which I speak!
What everyone has forgotten is that the Mantra of the lazy left is "WE ARE ALL IMMIGRANTS! WE ARE A NATION OF IMMIGRANTS!" and thank God that the responsible among us ignore this silliness to support the lazy lefts NEED to not perform their jobs as they have agreed to and SHOULD do.
They brag about the wonderful and VITAL jobs that they re refusing to do and and it makes me wonder that if they are such terriffic workers and laborers, why did they leave their native countries to bless us with whining and complaining.....go home and make your native lands a BETTER place and then see how we feel.
The idiot kid who said his school lost money for that day... Unless it was a "count day" which only happens a few times a year, the school lost NOTHING. In fact, they got money for nothing, because those kids butts weren't in a seat. I really laugh but also pity at all of these people who think they "know how stuff works", when they really are just repeating rhetoic that they have heard from OTHER uniformed liberals.
I'm sure one could make the case for the economic impact of fewer criminal illegal immigrants: less demand for police officers, court related employees, prisons and prison guards. Studies show nearly one-third of those in our jails and prisons are illegal immigrants. But I don't think that would be a winning argument, do you?
they only hurt themselves, they act like we can't live without them. funny how they all didn't show up for work and i didn't even notice a difference. so they screwed the school out of some money by using their children as pawns and now will bitch because they only screwed themselves
I'm so sick and tired of the collective bullying by an uneducated bunch of people that spread fear! I don't completely agree with everything President Trump says, but I can't find ANYTHING, EVER, ANYWHERE that suggests he is "banning" LEGAL immigrants. So all of you LEGAL immigrants should take a step back and really look at the big picture. And seriously, if you really think about it, if I were a LEGAL immigrant, I'd be pissed as fuck that I busted my ass the right way to achieve the American Dream and the ILLEGAL immigrant living next to me was getting a free ride from the government. I just wish people would stop putting all of their faith in an obviously corrupt media.
Can we have ANOTHER "A Day Without Immigrants" please? I'm sorry, I'm not trying to be crass or anything, but I forgot all about it and I didn't realize that it was happening yesterday. (It was yesterday, right?) I mean they need to put up a sign or something so we'll know.
I'm also wondering if anybody would be interested in putting together "A Day Without Employers" ??
then dont hire illegals its you know ILLEGAL. Dont commit a crime come here legally allow the system to vett you stop stealing tax payers money. If your a bisinuess then hire only legal U.S. citizens and legal immigrants who follow the law. great job idiots on costing all those people a days wages and hurting absolutely no one except yourselves and your employees. there are plenty of all those things at the grocey stores that where still open and still had plenty of employees. you just made people save money and at most lose a few minutes of convienence.
The incredible dishonesty of the left is always amazing. Most of us, including Trump, are NOT anti-immigrant. We are anti-ILLEGAL immigration. Why don't they seem to get that fact? What part of "ILLEGAL" don't they get? Are they stupid or simply dishonest? We know that there is no possible way that our nation can adopt all of the world's poor and that open borders means the destruction of our sovereign nation. We also believe that adopting refugees is not wise unless we know with a fair degree of certainty who they are and why they are coming.
Just think how much money could be saved, taxes would be lowered, and how much better schools would be with fewer students. Just think how many jobs would become available when there are tens of millions of Americans out of work and underpaid due to the corrupt system of using illegal aliens.
In our area of relatively high percentage of Hispanics, those who stayed home impacted only Hispanic run businesses - mostly mom and pop type small businesses. It didn't affect larger or chain store type businesses. So as it always is with a leftist based protest, they hurt those they proclaim to be helping.
Don't you get it? They want to comingle the notion of legal immigrants with criminal aliens, because many of the criminal aliens have legal immigrant relatives. They are trying to prevent their illegal relatives from being deported. What happens to anchor babies if mom and pop are deported for being illegal aliens? That's why they want to treat the entire group as poor persecuted "immigrants"; to further their illegal scheme of entering illegally, possibly also being convicted of crimes, but having anchor babies to thwart our immigration laws and keep from being deported. It's very simple really, why they are pretending to not know the difference between the two groups.
We were all immigrants at one time or another...What about us? What about immigrants who came to this country through the proper channels? Who wanted a life with great opportunities, a safe place to raise their children, Freedom to speak, an education, etc...etc...etc... If staying home from work & school is your way of dealing with this situation, are you cut out to be an American, a citizen of The United States? Did you not leave a Country of chaos, rights for some but not for all, oppression, murder, perhaps, yes, even slavery?
You are doing what This Country gave you...freedom to disagree... If you truly heard for yourself what has been said, you would know you are welcome here. There is a process of order not chaos for entry. This is for the safety of all people. If this is where you want to live & work, do not bring to This Country behavior you so desperately wanted to leave.
All these brainless little morons calling people bigots. The key word is illegal not immigrant no one has anything against immigrants we only have problems with illegal immigrants and if they are illegal they are not immigrants they are criminals. All you little cry babies are showing your stupidity by constantly saying that this is about immigrants. And all the people encouraging their children not to go to school that shows your stupidity that shows your hatred for your own children.
If you are a legal immigrant I say welcome! If you are here illegally you need to go back where you came from. To all these businesses that had to close yesterday, if you had legal workers your business would not have been closed. You need to lose any tax exemption that you are taking for wages and benefitS. IRS needs to compile a list and put every one of you through the audit process. ICE needs to do a raid on your business because you are breaking our laws just as the illegal immigrants are doing.
Think of all the jobs that could be offered to American Citizens. Lot of unemployed veterans and poor people could benefit. We have a lot of Legal Immigrants that have become law abiding citizens, why the illegals are the ones on "STRIKE"? If you want to be here, follow the guidelines for becoming a citizen, or get the heck out of our country.
Yeah Trump is so hateful towards immigrants that he married one. IT is all about illegals. Also Trump is not a woman hater, as he had the first successful woman campaign manager. But yeah Trump hates on women. I wish the left would get brain transplants or get educated because they obviously have no clue about what is real or not. Oh wait they pulled kids from schools to prove they have no smarts, or refuse to educate themselves, then wonder why they are stuck in a none progressing job.
So everyone that didn't go to work or school is here illegally? I seriously doubt that. But the employers didn't make any money, neither did their employees. I personally was unaffected by them not going to work. I went to work and got paid. These people are foolish.
Hey, I've got an idea. Have ICE find out who didn't show up for work and anyone who is here illegally, deport them. It would save ICE a lot of time and save we citizens and people who are here legally a lot of money. Also charge all the employers who are paying their employees under the table with tax evasion. Sounds like a win-win to me.
Perfect way to let ICE know just exactly WHERE most of the illegal aliens ARE!!! And I wonder if any of these illegal aliens realize now how they were tricked by Obama when he ask them to register so they could stay here? They believed him and most of them did go register because they thought he would 'take care of them' LOL, now ICE knows exactly where they are!!!! Obama had no intention of 'taking care of them'. It was just a ruse and they fell for it hook, line, and sinker!!
What they don't realize is that if they weren't doing their jobs, someone else would be doing them...probably unemployed people, teens needing jobs, and out of work veterans. People aren't protesting that we have LEGAL immigrants working and living in the U.S.....it's the illegals. Americans have the right to say who and how many legal immigrants come into our country. If you're here, assimilate, become an American, and stop the racial allegiance just because that's your ethnicity.
Someone hit me with the facts that whites collect the most welfare benefits, something like 43% followed in increments by the other ethnicity's. I fact checked this because this also needs to be changed but back to illegals. I did some research and found out that illegals cost America something like 100 billion dollars a year, the data is out there. With over 50 billion of that being in healthcare.
So it is only illegals that bring good to our country? This seems abut outlandish eve for someone like me. Maybe our children could learn more faster since we wouldn't have to pander to the illegals. Maybe more Americans can get jobs that illegals have. I welcome all legal immigrants. Just not the ones that come here and create a market for identity theft so they can work. If they were legal this wouldn't be as prevalent.
I don't have a single thing against anyone from anywhere who comes here legally but I am tired of putting up with our laws being disregarded. No country in this hemisphere does not have laws pertaining to legal immigration into their country and they regularly toss out the people who break these laws. The whole premise that we will fall apart if the hispanic population leaves is ridiculous - we managed to run businesses before they came and we will manage after they are gone.
Wow you people are f**king idiots. Immigrants DID make this country great. You boneheads keep forgetting to use the word ILLEGAL when you protest and riot. Illegal Immigrants didn't make this country great. They snuck in, took your federal money and state money for themselves, brought over their children, cousins and parents and live in the shadows and don't pay taxes. And YOU idiots protesting support them with YOUR tax dollars. Talk about stupid. You don't even know what you're protesting. If you did - you WOULDN'T.
This article is stupid and those people are ignorant and don't get it. Many trump supporters have done said they will not go to restaurants because it was owned by an immigrant and said America first eventhough the restaurant was owned by a us Citizen that was not of European decent.
@coach...I think you misunderstood Maria's comment when she said "YOUR PRESIDENT". I interpreted that as he's your President, so show him the respect deserved, because he's got your back...protecting you and us, from the possibility of corrupt illegals committing crimes against the community.
When is the press going to stop using the term " seven majority-Muslim nations " and us the term "seven nations that promote and train terrorist." Words matter and the media is good at using words to make waht they say implie something other than what is the issue, like undocumeted workers in place of illegal aliens.
Who started this Nonsense of lumping together,..LEGAL...and ILLEGAL..Immigrants???? Everyone's Ancestors at one time immigrated to this wonderful Country. They also,..learned the language,..worked hard,..pulled together!..They did NOT protest,..marched,..whined and complained about everything that was different,..odd,..new,..or not to their liking.
THAT..is what made this Country GREAT. Protesting with fists in the air,..filthy language and threats,..which most likely they could not do in the Country most of them came from,..that is NOT moving forward or productive. BTW,.. 54..years ago, I immigrated to this super Country..legally, and had to have MANY SHOTS, to make sure I did not bring any disease . This is THE best Country there is!!
All of this is so cute. Since Trump has won, everyday I get up and enjoy watching the left implode. Do they not realize, independents, such as myself, will NEVER vote dem again after seeing this display of protesting (rioting mostly) everyday. I know plenty of other independents as well who have left the Dem party. The Dems will never win another EC election again as long as they keep wearing those diapers and sucking those pacifiers.
With the left distorting everything Trump says and does this does not surprise me. They left out "Day without illegal immigrants" means no junkies loitering outside business, no lazy welfare recipients using the bathroom all day, no illegals stealing from the stores or using free medical treatments at the local hospitals. Trump never said anything about LEGAL immigrants, but then you lame moronic liberals always have a hard time getting your facts straight.
The business that were closed in support of people pulling such a snit; such assinine behavior of people who think they are so special that they can get away with walking out on their job for a day, have lost my support! If you come to America to be an American, welcome! If you didn't, please go home!
Great way to show ICE exactly where to look. Stupid! If the school is empty be ause all thats there are illegals, never reopen that school. Its tax money that should be diverted to "legal" kids schools. This pritest was great....shows us what to close, where NOT to soend our money, and wher the government needs to swoop in. If you are here LEGALLY, we welcome yiu with open arms and ask you to assimilate. If you are illegal, you better run......
This is at the top of the STUPID LIST! Almost 98% of Americans are immigrants! Its the ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS that need to go. How about having and 'Day Without Illegal Immigrants March' so it will be easier to get u back to your home country. The left is turning logic into stupidity.
A “Day Without Immigrants” – a statement of hypocrisy or just plain irony?
Restaurants in the U.S. have a negative reputation for flourishing off the backs of poorly paid workers. The person washing the dish you used for your $12.00 burger – is usually earning less than a living wage. In many cases; due to “loopholes” in labor laws, he/she is not benefiting from minimum wage laws that protect most workers in the USA.
Restaurant pay disparity includes establishments from low and moderate priced national restaurants chains, and it goes all the all the way up to those hoity-toity celebrity restaurants that charge $50 to $200 per person for the privilege of consuming an expensive “gourmet” meal. Yes, a gourmet meal prepared by low-wage “kitchen help.” Yes, the same kitchen help who couldn’t even dream of dining in the very place they work preparing and serving your breakfast, lunch and dinner.
So, why do all these wealthy restaurateurs put on the show, a “Day without Immigrants” in some ostensible attempt to show their so-called support of immigrant workers?
Simple Reason #1 – Immigrants are restaurateurs’ lifeblood to wealth and their lifeline to staying in business.
Simple Reason #2 – Restaurateurs need a CONSTANT influx of immigrant workers to remain in business.
Simple Reason #3 – Most immigrants (both legal and illegal) are hard-working individuals, who dream of a better life in America, and they are willing to accept very low wages and poor working conditions to achieve that dream.
Simple Reason #4 – Without willing immigrants, most restaurateurs would either have to find another career or change their business model.
However, if they changed their business model to include a living wage for ALL employees, then immigrants would be an “undesired” employee by most restaurant owners. After all, if restaurant owners were forced pay the same wages as Walmart, Target or Sears – do you think they would still get their employees from outside the country?
In my view, most restauranteurs are WORRIED about keeping their pockets lined and their egos fulfilled by exploiting cheap labor. After all, “immigration rights” from a restauranteurs’ prospective is actually a synonymous term for protecting and preserving a never-ending supply of exploitable and cheap labor.
During his campaign, President Donald Trump promised to enforce immigration laws that have been a part of our legal system for many years. People of the Left are trying to convince the public the president is making his own laws regarding illegal immigration. It is simply not the case. Yes, the president can sign an Executive Order, but that order can be easily challenged by the check-and-balance system of the judicial branch of our government.
Bottom line: wealthy restauranteurs are putting on the “Anti-Trump” dog and pony show. The reality is their actions are just “smoke and mirrors” to take the focus off the fact they don’t want their “good thing” ruined by immigration laws that have been on the books for many decades.
Liberals sure are stupid people. They don't know the difference between legal and illegal. But they do have two people who has done the most illegals things in the world. Odumbo and Hillary. Those two need to be shot. Gutted out. Hung up so everyone can see that Dumb and Dumber are dead. Then feed their carcasses to the hogs. I didn't even know the liberals were out rioting Thursday. If I would have known that I could have added a lot of notches on my gun barrel. Those morons would have been easy targets. If you want to kill some liberals all you have to do is pass around a flyer saying you're going to riot against President Trump and the streets will be full of liberals since they have no jobs.
what these idiots are forgetting about their demands is that illegal immigrants have no right to demand anything from our government because DUH they are not citizens of this nation! i didnt see one bit of change here in oregon hell even the mexican restraunts were still open for business! the only people who really seen to be sticking up for illegal immigrants are illegal immigrants and unemployeed liberal progressives who are either paid for by george soros or have nothing better to do then smoke some dope and walk around town acting enraged !
This is all left wing hysterics and insane actions. No one is banning immigrants! That's the left's misinterpretation of a legal and Constitutiona Executive Orderputting a temporary ban on ILLEGAL alients coming from proven terroris states for 90 to 120 days until an effective vetting procedure is in place. You on the left just like to put words in other people's mouths so you can protest and carry idiot signs to make your feel good. I suggest your children should return to school as should the parents to learn to read English] immediately, you parents should be arrested for child abuse, and you should just shut your pie holes and leave the rest of us alone to contune being the only adults in the Country.
