U.S. prepares for 'Day Without Immigrants'

Subhead: Illegal immigrants and their allies plan nationwide day of protest to flex economic muscle.

"Some will skip work, others will protest at lunch breaks, school walkouts or at rallies after work."
Skipping work and school? If they not careful, these "illegal immigrants and their allies' are going to give Latino people a reputation for being lazy.

Actually, I think both sides in this debate are being unreasonable and all of the attention being paid to the issue will result in bad policy. I hope to expand on this in a future blog post, but I really don't have time to blog right now, since I'm not skipping work today.

  1. Isn't it funny how things can get so out of hand it ends up hurting the cause instead of working forward to find a better solution?

    The mentality has to change.


Your turn to riff...
