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.

    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

    The stupidity and racism in this area never fails to surprise me.

    Love it..Why don’t we have this 365 days a year..Think of all the benefits if we did..Less crime,drunk driving, child molestation, better teaching environment in schools and the list go’s on and on……

    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
