Boycott set to support illegals

Immigration rights organizers today will call for a nationwide boycott of work, school and shopping on May 1 to protest congressional efforts to clamp down on illegal aliens as part of pending immigration-reform legislation.
The "Great American Boycott of 2006" is only one in a series of large-scale events the protesters hope will sway lawmakers to put millions of illegal aliens on track toward permanent residency and U.S. citizenship.
"The massive March 25 march and rally in Los Angeles of well over one million immigrant workers and their supporters -- along with protests and student walkouts throughout the United States -- is irrefutable evidence that a new civil rights and workers' rights movement is on the rise," said Raul Murillo, one of the key organizers and president of the Hermandad Mexicana Nacional.
"In order to realize the goal of legalization for the millions of undocumented workers, we have the obligation to keep pressing the Congress of the United States to legislate immigration reform that grants full legalization for all immigrants."
Sarah Sloan, a spokeswoman for boycott organizers, said the boycott, additional marches and rallies in at least 30 cities nationwide beginning next week are designed to highlight opposition to House legislation that would crack down on illegal aliens.
The Act Now to Stop War & End Racism (ANSWER) coalition, which organized the Los Angeles march to win "full rights for undocumented workers," is confident its new "national action" will prove successful.
ANSWER's steering committee includes the Free Palestine Alliance, the Partnership for Civil Justice, the Nicaragua Network, the Korea Truth Commission, the Muslim Student Association, the Mexico Solidarity Network and the Party for Socialism and Liberation. It denounces as racism attempts to criminalize illegal aliens.
A bill approved in the House, 239-182, would, among other things, increase immigration enforcement and border security, build a fence along 698 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border, make illegal entry a felony and penalize those who help illegals enter the United States.
Boycott organizers think the Senate Judiciary Committee, under the pressure of massive protests last week, adopted a series of reforms in sharp contrast to the House-approved bill.
The Senate bill that would create a guest-worker program and put millions of illegal aliens on track toward permanent residency was approved last week by the Senate Judiciary Committee 12-6. It now goes to the full Senate. If approved, then it and the House version must be reconciled before it can be presented to President Bush.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman F. James Sensenbrenner Jr., Wisconsin Republican and author of the House bill, yesterday called border security and immigration reform "the toughest and most complex government policy issue around, and one that requires a civil, careful and thoughtful discussion to arrive at a policy that reflects that we are both a nation of immigrants and a nation of laws."
"I am disappointed by the erroneous accusations lodged against the strong House-passed border-security bill, aimed at preventing illegal immigration, that I sponsored," he said.
Mr. Sensenbrenner said alien-smuggling rings present an enormous problem and the House bill provides new tools for prosecutors to fight smuggling rings, "not the humanitarian and church groups, alleged by illegal-alien supporters." He said targeting alien-smuggling gangs is the intent -- and the effect -- of the House bill.
"I would hope everyone would embrace a good-faith effort to combat alien-smuggling gangs, rather than engage in fear-mongering that clergy and good Samaritans will be thrown in jail," he said. "That's absolutely false -- and beneath the level of dialogue this important issue deserves."
He also noted that it is currently a crime to enter the United States illegally and that criminal prosecutions, while not frequent, are focused on the most egregious cases. But he said unlawful presence, or residing in this country illegally, is not currently a crime in the United States, as it is in Mexico and many other countries."
Los Angeles march organizers have credited Cardinal Roger Mahony, who leads the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, the largest Roman Catholic diocese in the country, with the turnout in Los Angeles. The archbishop attacked the House bill during Ash Wednesday Mass, saying it would turn most people and institutions that aid illegal aliens into felons.
He pledged a campaign of civil disobedience in the archdiocese's 288 parishes if it becomes law. Another major protest march in Los Angeles is scheduled for Monday.
Hundreds of students in high schools in California, Texas, Arizona, Nevada and Kansas also walked out of their schools last week to protest immigration-reform measures being considered in Congress -- holding flags from the United States, Mexico, Guatemala and several other Latin American countries.
There also were marches last month in Washington, Chicago, Milwaukee, Phoenix, Atlanta and other cities.

All of the illegals at my uncle's shop decided to take Friday off, to show how much we gringos are dependent on those who do the work we will not do.

Work is slow and they just laid 40% of guys in the shop off, so it was not a big deal. He should have told them to take this week off too. Or rehired the 40% that got laid off, and fired the guys who protested.

So is this a shop where your uncle works or does he own it and willing have illegals on the payroll?

Walkouts can be a double edged sword, as a Company may just find out that it can do without the workers that walkout.

Is the Cold War so far behind us that we have forgotten that May 1st is the old Soviet Communist big holiday?

May 1. Does anyone else see this as the work of that Marxist asshole in Venezula?

All the good little Marxists have been circle jerking over using Citgo products (Citgo is the domestic retail arm of PDVSA, the nationalized petroleum corporation of Venezula). Then they believe in the farsical land of Aztlan (Aztecs never made it past the Sierra Madres).

Hugo Chavez needs a bullet between the eyes. This thing has his fingerprints all over it.

Great, less traffic on May 01, May Day.

Maybe they will all stay at home and watch old documentaries of the May Day parades while the roads are less congested. Hmmm, maybe I should do my Corvette Z06 trade that day.

When I saw the group ANSWER and May 1, that is the first thing that came to mind.

Sooooo... where would one purchase those 'pepper spray' paint balls?????

and I'm certainly not encouraging people to throw beans and tortillas at protesters.



RE: recent march of the Illegals news:

"......Siempre United co-founder Robin McIlhenny said students had seen professors punished for speaking out."......



"Gomez said she protested Friday with students from Clark High School and was appalled by the number of adult passers-by who made obscene gestures and yelled at the students to go back to Mexico."

Brilliant,

1) Walkout
2) Illegals take your job
3) You complain
4) They say "it was a job you were unwilling to do"
5) They laugh all the way to the welfare office.

My Simple plan to deal with this situation:
Employers-Hire an undocmented illegal worker, you go to jail for each day that worker was on your "payroll". Multiple workers are added on to the sentence. Or pay a fine equivlent to 3 times the wages of an American doing the same job for each day each illegal was working.

An illegal presents forged documents to employer and those caught in above's scenario-Able bodied male and female illegals MUST serve 1-2 years in the military. Afterwards with their CO's recommendation, they can be granted citizenship. They will have been trained in a useful skill and served their new country as well. Non-able bodied personnel will be deported. (Children of able bodied immigrant serving in the military can stay)

It's going to be a looooong hot summer.

If the illegals are legalized, the message will be a clear one. There is no advantage to obeying the law and no penalty for breaking it.

This will reduce the leadership role of government. When faced with a security problem, the government simply leagalizes the illegal behavior and avoid dealing with it.

I can understand the Democrats wanting this, they will gain millions of votes and weaken conservatives, while passing on the cost to the taxpayers.

I don't understand why Republicans would support this, as it makes them look ineffective and will shift the balance of power in several states.

I think it has something to do with the drugs

OUR government was never really interested in stopping the drugs from coming over the border

How many DECADES has the mexican military(or mexicans dressed like them using military tactics and equipment)
been escorting truckloads of drugs INSIDE of our border, that is not something that OUR government didn't NOTICE

They are very much aware of this...........they just have not taken the action neccessary to put an end to it

MILITARIZE THE DAMN BORDER ALREADY, STOP THE DRUG SHIPMENTS
THE MEXICAN MILITARY SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO POINT .50 MACHINE GUNS AT OUR LEOS
