May 1st Protests

I'm not going to discourage hispanics from not walking on May 1st. They ought to do what they think is right for them. I do want to address the groups encouraging them to do it, however. Shame on all of you. You don't care for these mojados. You know very well that many of them will get fired over this. This is just like the entire fiasco in Mission, TX over the contaminated land. "Activists" are out working their tails off to sue chemical companies and the train company. Rather than work to raise money and move these people out, they leave them there to die pending litigation. What a bunch of jerks.

Same goes for latino groups. A bunch of talk, but when it comes to doing something meaningful and useful, you turn to Washington. Leave Washington out of it. They don't know their left from their right. If you REALLY wanted to do something useful for these immigrants, you'd raise money and help them become legal residents. Why don't you do that? It's because you'd no longer have "victims". This is why it's obvious to me that Latino groups don't have the interests of illegal immigrants in mind. You are simply making empty promises that if they march they will get something done. Will you guarantee them a paycheck if they get fired? Probably not. Can you guarantee them that they won't get fired? Can you promise them that by marching on Monday that they will get legal recognition? You hope, but can't make any such guarantee. You shouldn't gamble with people's livelihoods for your political gain.
