“Day Without Immigrants” based on a lie

Illegal aliens are not immigrants

According to organizers, the recent nationwide “Day Without Immigrants” protests were aimed at showcasing the “impact immigrants have on the U.S. economy.” In some locations the demonstrations will continue through today — Presidents’ Day.

Students were encouraged to ditch school to join in the walkout. Their absence from the nation’s classrooms sends a loud and clear message that education is secondary to protests. Adults were told not to open their businesses or go to work, not to make any purchases, not to send their children to school.

NBC News captioned a photo taken in Chicago, “Protesters participate in a march aimed against President Donald Trump’s efforts to crack down on immigration.”

Lost amid the political skew and ballyhoo is the fact that the protesters are not immigrants. They are illegal aliens. Media sources have unilaterally decided that accurate descriptive language is taboo, while working diligently to blur the lines between the distinctly different terms. Yet facts are stubborn things.

Immigrants are those who have come to the United States legally with the desire to fully assimilate into our culture as previous generations of newcomers have done.

Immigration Counters supports legal immigration while highlighting the significant impact of illegal immigration in America. Acquaint yourself with the commentary that follows the continually updating numbers.

News coverage dealing with the protests tells of employers who fired their workers for not showing up at work. Their righteous indignation is form over substance.  Had the illegal labor profiteers not hired low wage foreign nationals rather than Americans, there would have been no marches, the businesses that were shut down would have functioned, and most importantly the job magnet that displaces American workers would not exist. Employers can’t have it both ways. They set this mayhem in motion.

    Thanks for making the point that can’t be made too often. Illegals are not immigrants! The word police are also working at mind control.

    Since today is Presidents’ Day, it’s good to reacquaint ourselves with what President Theodore Roosevelt had to say on the issue of immigration.

    “In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the man’s becoming in very fact an American, and nothing but an American.

    There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile…We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language…and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”

    –Theodore Roosevelt

    Should be called a day with out illegals. A good day for us to ID business who hire illegals and avoid trading with them. The lying,distorting and biased press is finally being called out. Time to call out the so-called education establishment which are really brain washing propaganda institutions.

    What’s wrong with having only one passport? Dual citizenship is a crock of BS. Pick your country and be loyal to it.

    Illegal = criminal

    They broke Federal law when they set foot #1 inside the U.S.
    And they break the law each and every day they are here.

    in Times Square, New York City today
    the streets are filled with the LOUD Muslim call to prayer and the shouting of Allahu Akbar.

    And Chelsea Clinton, who has taken to trolling Trump on Twitter, bragged that she was part of the crowd.

    Hillary is now the toast of the town in NYC. The new “it” girl.
    Showing up several times a week at Broadway shows and is given multiple standing ovations just for breathing.

    Big Dem donors hosting parties for Hillary with such frequency that the caterers are struggling to keep up.
    They are floating the idea of Hillary running for mayor of NYC.
    However, Chelsea for Senate is being floated, also.

    Hill and Bill have purchased a house in their neck of the woods for Chelsea as it is reported that the woman who holds a seat in the US Congress representing that area is being pressured to not run for re-election——hope this woman has a bodyguard .

    The businesses that closed in support of this lunacy should be boycotted themselves. We stopped going to the movies due to our lack of desire to support any of the Hollyweird liberals. Now they are so emboldened, they insult President Trump and denigrate conservative opinions at their self congratulatory awards events. I’d rather listen to Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity than watch, listen to or support any of them.

    This country is pretty much gone. We watch illegal aliens using their “rights” by just taking off from their job to protest the fact that they don’t like our laws. What’s wrong with that picture? The two parties are allowing this immigration subject to go further and further leftward. I’d be fired if I took a day off to protest Obama or Trump – or if I took a day off to protest illegal immigration. Pretty soon, illegal aliens from everywhere will be part of our culture. The open borders globalists aren’t stopping.

    Mike Pence is in Brussels supporting the EU. I thought I read it wrong – but I didn’t. “Vice President Mike Pence Vows U.S. Support for European Union” is the headline in the Wall St. Journal article.

    Illegals – “Immigrants” get fired for not working – geez I wonder why. Hello it’s called a job – that’s where you go to work and get paid for working. On a positive note – those that were fired will make way for LEGAL citizens to get hired. Those businesses that did hire – just found out how dedicated their former employees were – NOT.

    Mega dittos, Kathy! Medicine for both the employers and their
    illegal hires. Justice this side of heaven….rare and beautiful!
