A day without an illegal.
And we survived.
We passed the test, they can all go back home now.
The place hardest hit, is the most sympathetic place. They won't feel a backlash there b/c they're the majority. But elsewhere, it didn't go well.
Translation - it was not effective
Mexican restaurants can expect a dearth of ''gringo'' customers for a long time to come.
No burritos? OMG! What did Americans eat before burritos?
All the hype and I personally feel completely unimpressed.
"'Today, no - no working and no buying,' said Enrique Varguas, 28, who rescheduled a dozen or so landscaping appointments..."
BFD. If they all rescheduled, he's not out dime-one. I own a business; re-scheduling appointments is part of the package.
Now, if he had CANCELLED a "dozen or so" contracts to really drive his point home about how we can't live without him, I might not be yawning right now. *Rolleyes*
What's that old saying? "A Gringo and his peso are too soon parted?" ;)
"Chinese food or a hamburger were easy to come by in the Mission District on Monday. Doughnuts or bagels? No problem. But in a neighborhood where every other storefront seems to house a tacqueria, you would have been hard-pressed to find a burrit"
I think its great that Americans were there to do the jobs that illegal immigrants wouldnt do.
Time for the gringos to stage "No-No De Mayo" ...
Here in Texas it was absolutely wonderful, our streets were less crowded our stores and reataurants were less crowded there are just way to many of them here!! One is actually one to many!
Tasted purdy danged gud ta me up here in the Stupid-Sierra-Nevada CONservancy!!! Phhhhhht!!!
Are you kidding me? WHat sort of person leaves their most precious gift with someone who doesn't even speak English. Nanny? What can an illegal immigrant teach my child besides, Spanish and other cultural Mexican traditions? I see this in LA all the time when I am out jogging. They pool in groups with baby carriages and when I smile at them I am given dirty looks that seem to say, "Whitey, how dare you smile at me." I can't beleive people leave their babies with these people. Some of the 'nannies' are very young. Insanity.
I can do without your f-ing burritos just fine, thank you!
OMG! Life without burritos! Oh! The humanity!
Without burritos America would have no problem meeting the Kyoto accords, were we to be silly enough to agree with them.
I worry, though, that the sudden reduction in the production of burrito-fueled greenhouse gases will throw the Earth off its axis, or out of its orbit.
We should immediately throw ourselves upon the tender mercies of our illegal betters, just to save ourselves from the horrible fate of a shortage of burrito gasious emissions.
uncitizen checking in. I'm still alive!
Just remember, as you watch all of these people swarming the streets, these are the people for whom we are being asked to build more schools, more highways, more rail projects, more hospitals, more jails, more affordable housing, and so on.
Instead of paying $222 Billion, how about enforcing the laws and purging the invaders?
I love it. Everything seems so much better. The suburbs are like heaven this day.
Can we have this done every day?
Water cooler quote heard in my office today:
"I don't care if they come to American and want to be Americans. I have a problem with them coming to America and wanting to be Mexicans."
Show your respect for the illegal aliens--eat a Chinese dinner.
The surprise is it won't impact.
