Immigrants across the country are staying home from school, skipping work and putting off shopping trips today to show how vital they are to the US economy and way of life. ´A Day Without Immigrants´ protests are planned in major cities including Philadelphia, Washington, Boston, Houston, Chicago and New York. The movement gained momentum on social media and by word of mouth. It comes in response to President Donald Trump, whose administration has pledged to increase the deportation of immigrants living in the country illegally. Trump campaigned on building a wall along the US-Mexico border, and blamed high unemployment on

Any restaurant or place of business that closes in support of illegal immigrants is on my boycott list.

I have not been back to several restaurants that supported illegals during a 2002 protest. I don´t forget those that support these illegals.

Why not a Day without Americans? Our soldiers in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, the Baltic states, Poland, South Korea and other places most Americans can´t find on a map would stand down for 24 hours after formal announcements that "You, your family and your country are on your own. Defend it! At least for a day."

I go to the post office several times a week for my business and about 95% of the time the person behind the counter is a HIspanic woman. She wasn´t there today. I wonder if the Feds are allowing their immigrant employees to stay home. If so, this is one more thing that President Trump needs to clean up.

Is it a "Day Without Immigrants" or a "Day without Illegal Aliens"? They don´t seem to have made that clear, but then they always muddy those waters, don´t they?

LA tried this same ploy some years back. I don´t recall it making much of an impact.

No problem with LEGAL immigrants and migration. This does not make the case for ILLEGAL immigrants and migration. We are NOT an open border country, and citizens of this country do not wish it to be.

Just got back from Aldi. I noticed traffic was pretty light. The store was not very busy. Got to the checkout & a 60ish white woman was commenting to the cashier how quiet it was, how everyone was out marching, and everyone should be doing so. The checker said the tortilla delivery man wasn´t delivering today. I so wanted to confront the customer, but better judgement prevailed. Actually, it was quite pleasant shopping today...a day without ILLEGAL immigrants.

As usual MSM is trying to confuse illegal and legal immigration. We L-Dotters are basically OK with legal. We all are descended from immigrants. Yes this includes the "native Americans" (no such critter in my book - they came from somewhere else as well). It´s the ILLEGAL that sticks. Shouldn´t be here, got no legal right to be here, should be sent back ASAP.

Lol, notice the cities. All democratic strong holds where the zombie populations are the highest. Cities where these idiots could care less about disrupting people´s lives and causing traffic jams. These are the bottom feeders of Obama´s army of protesters. Think about it, nobody ever said that foreign-born workers weren´t vital. Its fake news again, its democrats taking advantage of the low information voter base. Got it.

Retail giant Sears said it will close 50 auto centers and 92 underperforming pharmacies inside Kmart stores in a bid to further cut costs in the face of rising red ink. The cuts come just four months after the Hoffman Estates, Illl-based retailer announced it would close 150 Sears and Kmart department stores across the country. At the time, CEO Edward Lampert said the company needed to reduce operating costs by $1 billion. In announcing the new round of closures Friday, Lampert said the cost cuts would now total $1.25 billion. In addition to the auto centers and pharmacies, the

Ever since L.

But the fact that a text is royalty-free doesn’t exempt authors from the ordinary courtesy of acknowledging their source material. The political reporters Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes ought to be ashamed that they didn’t mention where they’d found the plot for their new book, Shattered. In the early pages of Shattered,

There could not be a better example of liberal media double standards than the kerfuffle over former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin posing in front of Hillary Clinton’s White House portrait (as First Lady) with rock stars Kid Rock and Ted Nugent. The ladies of The View had their knickers in a knot. “You’re in the White House. Bring a little class with you!” sniffed Sara Haines as her co-hosts agreed in one way or another. Really? Really?

I was as surprised as anyone that she had made the journey on foot. As her equerry — a glorified word for fixer and organiser — I had advised her that unexpectedly heavy traffic meant it would be impossible for her to make a planned lunch engagement at the Palace on time and suggested that we should put it off. ‘Nonsense,’ she had announced. ‘We’ll just have to walk.’ And so

Donald Trump has a “dangerous mental illness” and is not fit to lead the US, a group of psychiatrists has warned during a conference at Yale University. Mental health experts claimed the President was “paranoid and delusional”, and said it was their “ethical responsibility” to warn the American public about the “dangers” Mr Trump’s psychological state poses to the country.

President Barack Obama will be in Chicago on Monday to discuss community organization and civic engagement.

Steel yourselves. Barack Obama’s about to emerge from the shadows — and first stop, University of Chicago. Why there? No doubt, it’s one of the more receptive breeding grounds for his particular brand of activism — the activism he’ll be touting to malleable student-age minds while engaging in, as his people called it, a “conversation about community organizing and civic engagement.” Make no mistake about it. This is about teaching the upcoming generation, loud as it already is about all topics that offend, to get even louder, even Leftist Prouder, and to — here’s the gist — use that Leftist

A Chicago artist has finished his mural of Michelle Obama in a colorful image that features the former first lady as an Egyptian queen. The painting by artist Chris Devins was completed Friday on the southeast corner of Chappel Avenue and 74th Street in South Shore. That´s two blocks from the former first lady´s childhood home at 7436 S. Euclid Ave. and across the street from Bouchet Elementary, which she attended when it was known as Bryn Mawr School. "I wanted to present her as what I think she is, so she´s clothed as an Egyptian queen. I thought that was appropriate,"

Outraged Muslims are reportedly planning a May 1 demonstration at the Amazon headquarters in Seattle, Washington. The company is under fire after several Muslim security guards demanded time and space to pray five times a day, while on the job. The guards contend in a lawsuit filed this week that the subcontractor who employs them does not appropriately accommodate their faith and retaliates against those who speak out. The Service Employees International Union and the guards allege that Amazon grants high-earning tech workers conference rooms to pray in, but they do not provide the same accommodation for contracted security officers

Politico swooned that computer algorithms "underlie nearly all of the Clinton campaign´s most important strategic decisions." Computer guru Elan Kriegel had crunched the numbers for campaign manager Robby Mook, allowing Team Clinton to precisely target her potential voters and thus not waste one dime on appealing to the deplorables. "Clintonites saw it as their secret weapon in building an insurmountable delegate lead over Bernie Sanders," Politico reported. And come the general election the Clintonistas were downright giddy about the edge Big Data

By his twenties, Kyle Kaylor imagined he would be living on his own, nearing a college degree, and on his way to a job that fulfilled him. Instead, at 21, he found himself out of school, living with his parents, and "stuck" working as a manager at a fast food restaurant scraping to make hand-to-mouth. Launching into adulthood has been tricky, he said. "It became too difficult financially to be in school and not working," says Kaylor, who dropped out of Lincoln Christian University, in Illinois, after one semester because of a money crunch.

Former Vermont governor and Democratic National Comittee chairman Howard Dean called out conservative pundit Ann Coulter on Twitter. (Snip) The comment was in response to a former New York Times reporter who tweeted, "Free Speech Defenders Don´t Forget: Ann Coulter once said: My only regret w/ Timothy McVeigh is he did not go to the New York Times building."

Former President Barack Obama will make his first public appearance Monday, hosting an event on civic engagement on his old stomping grounds at the University of Chicago. The event, open to the public but with limited tickets, will bring together younger leaders and students “for a conversation on community organizing and civic engagement.” It won’t be an explicitly political event. As an Illinois state senator, Obama once represented the neighborhood where the campus is located and also was a law professor at the university. He last stopped by the campus in 2016, using an event at the law school to make a
