HAHA! National “Day Without Immigrants” Protest Totally BACKFIRES In Totally Unexpected Way

Yesterday, the left was busy off on yet another insincere publicity stunt that took the form of “a day without immigrants”. Basically, some immigrants in this country went on strike to fight against Trump’s attempts to deport criminal illegal immigrants out of the country.

So this was the plan:

Prove to the racist President and his new Nazi supporters just how the country would purportedly come to a screeching halt if they were not here to keep it up and running…

Before we go any further, can we make it clear that the left just refuses to make the differentiation between immigrant and illegal immigrant? One being very important to the history and growth of the country, and the other being very good at tax evasion and identity theft.

Much to the surprise of…Well, no one that has half a brain, it would appear that not a single apocalyptic sign appeared in the sky during the protest event. Nope. All went on without a problem, and most didn’t even realize that the immigration protest thingy was actually going on.

Even the New York Times basically acknowledged that the protest was more troublesome than anything else, and that cities did NOT cease to a function…Like, at all.

February 16 marked a fascinating collection of two competing worldviews in the country these days.

On the one hand, illegal immigrants and their supporters avoided work to stage a “day without immigrants” in an endeavor to show how the country would seemingly grind to a halt if they were deported. On the other, President Trump signed a pivotal and much-needed piece of legislation configured to put thousands of coal miners back to work, earning a living for their families.

According to reporter Gwynne Hogan,  Dozens of immigrant women usually gather each morning at Marcy and Division avenues waiting for cleaning jobs in Orthodox Jewish homes, but on Thursday, the day of a nationwide immigrant strike, the corner was nearly empty.

The few women who did come to “La Parada” — the stop — in South Williamsburg said they could command $15 or $20 an hour instead of the $10 they’re usually paid, and refused to work for anything less.

“Here there are usually 50, 60 people,” said Ana Mendez, 52, from Peru in Spanish. But on Thursday afternoon, she was one of only a handful of women standing on the corner.

“Nobody’s come,” she said.

Mendez had come to La Parada at 9 a.m. and was there until about 3 p.m. asking for $15 and hour. She’d turned down a half a dozen jobs where people wanted to pay her less, she said.

Zoila Guannan, 50, said she’d gotten frantic calls from women she usually works for.

“They’re desperate, they’re calling here, they’re calling there…They’re calling me, but I’m telling them no,” she said. “Today is special. We want $20 dollars an hour.”

She hoped the strike would, “make them feel it,” she said.

“This was not a normal day for them and for many others,” she said, in Spanish.

Given the context, in this case it seems that both those protesting (and those who decided to still work) were all illegal immigrants.

Perhaps in an effort to boost wages they can aim for a “Day Without Illegal Immigrants” every month.
