Day Without Immigrants Movement

A nationwide movement is planned for today to show support for immigrants.

Organizers are calling for immigrants not to go to work, open their businesses, buy anything, and they’re also telling parents not to send their children to school.

A Day Without Immigrants is slated for today across the country with one planned at Moore Square in Raleigh. In Raleigh, about 30 businesses have posted signs on their windows saying they won’t be open on Thursday. David Salazar, who represents ‘Si a las Licencias (Yes to a License),’ one of the groups organizing the demonstration, says this is a grassroots effort.

Local activists say they want to show their opposition to President Donald Trump’s travel ban and crackdown on illegal immigration, including the border wall.

    If all the illegal immigrants would leave wages would go up and Less crime,drunk driving, child molestation, better teaching environment in schools would cut back on class room size. Don’t forget the drugs. We know you cross the border every year or two and stay for a few weeks and then come back to the U.S,
    When Trump gets the wall build you won’t be coming back unless you are legal.
    Cut off or cut down on all immigrants coming over her or limit everyone to two kids in the U.S.

    if you are here illegally you should be deported back to your own country. its not Americas place to keep up illegals any more than its any other counties place to keep up their illegals.Do you think we could go to another country , break the law and not get arrested or deported??. Come on- OUR President did NOT say you couldnt come to the USA, he says you have to do it the legal way– whats wrong with that?? if you are ILLEGAL and YOU break the law, what do you expect??

    For the employers that have illegal immigrants working for them ,you should be held accountable and fined . There are a few businesses that I know of personally that give illegals jobs ,cater to them ,treat them better and pay them better than the employees that are American citizens and have been there for years and it is a shame!!! I hope that the businesses that are found to have knowingly hired illegal immigrants have their establishments name listed in the paper

      You realize “illegal aliens” are not a race. When people like you constantly say the word racism it loses its power.

        For the same reason they chose not to go to work,town and school ..i guess you could call it freedom of speech Jen. Not racist just facts and the fact is that if America gave anybody in the world the right to come here without being legal then we wouldn’t be the great nation that we are. People need to use their head instead of looking for any reason to cry “racism ” !!! They have no idea what their world would be like ! I can tell you what it wouldn’t be like. It wouldn’t be home of the free because you would be scared to go out of your homes among other things! If it bothers you that bad i suggest you go to a foreign country and find a new neighbor!

    This is so ridiculous. Immigrants here legally are not targeted, its illegal immigrants that are being deported as they always should have. What part of “illegal” don’t people understand? If you are going to come to our country, do it legally. If we cross into another country illegally, we will he charged, jailed then deported.

    As far as the travel ban goes, it’s NOT targeting a specific religion like Muslims. The countries on the list are countries terrorists frequently travel from to carry out attacks in European nations, and also a threat to America.. I believe the travel ban was intended to reduce the chances of terrorists to infiltrate our country and carry out attacks. Sad how the mainstream media planted false bull crap in people’s heads
