"Without Us, Your Country Is Paralyzed" - Undocumented Workers Plan Boycott "Day Without Immigrants"

Tyler Durden's picture

As we noted over the weekend, one of the immediate consequences of the Trump immigration executive order - and one which has so far gone largely unchallenged - has been a crackdown against illegal immigrants residing in the US.  Following reports that first surfaced over the weekend that US immigration officials had launched countrywide raids and arrested hundreds of illegal aliens across the nation as a result of that immigration executive order, President Trump weighed in on Twitter, stating that "the crackdown on illegal criminals is merely the keeping of my campaign promise. Gang members, drug dealers & others are being removed!"


But, as it turns out, the "undocumented immigrants" are not going down without a fight.

Per a flyer that has been floating around the migrant farmworker community in California, illegal immigrants are planning "A Day Without Immigrants Boycott" for tomorrow.  As part of the effort to demonstrate how vital illegal immigrants to the U.S. economy, "undocumented, residents, citizens, immigrants from all over the world" are encouraged to participate in the protest as follows:

  • Do NOT attend work
  • Do NOT open up our businesses
  • Do NOT shop online or in stores
  • Do NOT eat at restaurants
  • Do NOT buy gas
  • Do NOT attend class
  • Skip School
  • Do NOT send children to school

The flyer also has a direct message for President Trump:

"Without us and our contribution this country is paralyzed!!!!"


"We might lose a day of work but we will WIN so much more."

Day Without Immigrants


As CNN reports, the "Day Without Immigrants" protest is also being planned for residents of Washington D.C. for tomorrow with many restaurants making plans to operate on short staffs and/or close for the day while public schools were forced to make contingency plans for walkouts.

Immigrants and supporters are planning to strike Thursday in a protest loosely organized by social media and word of mouth. The goal is to demonstrate the importance of immigrants to society, as the Trump administration continues to pursue hard-line enforcement policies that advocates fear will disrupt communities and the economy.


Restaurants in the DC area were planning to operate with short staff, offer menus in solidarity with striking immigrants and in some cases, close altogether.


Schools were preparing as well. A bilingual charter school in Northwest DC planned to close, and DC public schools were preparing for possible walkouts.

Something tells us that pink flyer above might end up earning a lot of illegal immigrants a "pink slip" from their employers.

Ah yes, because nothing says "Yoo Hoo! Here I am! Deport ME!" Like taking part in an illegal foreign national protest day. Can these altruist-collectivists do anything more asshatted than that? Really, talk about stupid on a stick...

They might as well put targets on there back. Fucking idiots.

If this strike succeeded we would all know immediately who the employers of illegal aliens are. The everyone else could boycott them.

Are they going to stop cashing their welfare checks, too?

What this will prove is that we are better off without them.

They did this before about 10 years ago. It was so effective that no one noticed and now no one remembers it even happened.

Make it a long one so their bosses can realize how uselesss these fuckers are.

It's fake.

Notice it's written in English and they don't speak, let alone read English.

Sanity Bear's picture

That's why they haven't tried it again in 10 years... the thing people noticed most was that traffic, in places that it's normally horrible, was actually not so bad once you take the illegals off the road.

It would be great if all of them did do this for 1 day: the extent to which America gets shut down illustrates the extent to which born and bread american workers have been disenfranchised

Don't hold back, mi amigos, really punish us. 

Don't just skip work, skip the whole country. Go back where you came from. Really make us look stupid. 


glenlloyd's picture

I have to laugh, maybe in CA some things might come to a halt but even that's kind of wishful thinking.

If anything it will demonstrate for the authorities who the illegals are, might even make it easier to round up and get rid of.

Around where I live I doubt that illegals not going to work would do much TBH.

in4mayshun's picture

Most of the illegals in Ca don't read English, so the sign will be pretty useless.

TheEndIsNear's picture

Yes indeed, they should extend their strike until every last one of them is dead from starvation.

It will have no impact on me or the small mountain town I live in because there are no Mexicans or Africans here at all -- Zilch. There is also zero crime here, except an occasional Caucasian meth head getting busted, an occasional DUI, or high school students pulling pranks. Also, most people here carry concealed firearms since no "permit" (ie; permission from the government) is needed anywhere in the state. More good people carrying weapons for self defense = less crime.

BrownCoat's picture

Yup! Every May 1st they have a boycott and plan a demonstration. Who ever notices?

Central to such a plan....the way we do Agriculture and Construction is the way it should be done. They are fortunate to NOT be outright slaves.

PT's picture

What happens if you don't cave to the illegals' demands?  Will they take another day off?  And another?  And another? ...

Got The Wrong No's picture

Who gives a fuck. If they stay out the people who hired them will fire them and have to pay more money to people who are out of work. 

Archibald Buttle's picture

if they can keep this up for long enough, we will eventually get to find out once and for all if americans are truly willing to do these jobs, or if they really don't want to be bothered. i bet the majority of fat fucks of any and all colors, stripes and creeds will prefer to keep sucking on whatever variety of .gov teat they have managed to latch onto rather than show up ready to pick vegetables or clean toilets, even when given this most obvious of chances to get a foot in the door to help oneself achieve gainful employment.

along these same lines, maybe a trump rally day is in order. pick a random tuesday and say everybody skip work and get out in the streets to show your support for the new prez. see how much work gets done that day in comparison.

meterman's picture

Much like the Federal Government shutting down - remember that - Serenity - feeling of well being - that pleasing "good riddance" state of mind. Let them strike. We will not miss them. But wait -The only down side will be with time on their hands there will be a huge increase in murders, robberies and rapes. Maybe we should keep them all busy consuming our wealth.

Thank you Obama for placing all Americans in this despicable condition. It seems Hillery is right - we are despicable thanks the her, Obama and their rabble. 

Dakota Kid's picture

Can they make it a month long or better yet a permanent boycott instead of a day?

We can’t afford to support illegal immigrants and refugees since welfare should go to US poor first when we have 20 trillion dollar debts. We don’t even have our own border. Working class don't have jobs since super rich move jobs oversea for cheap labor. Student debts are tripling in two decades. The richest illegal immigrants are those who commit drug crimes. Rich people buy politicians for power and protection such that government officials in US Sanctuary cities resist to corporate with federal government to deport illegal immigrants who commit crimes. Any elected officials who are against “law and order” should be replaced immediately.

They don't know what to do, they are up creek and they know it.  They are doing this and all it will do is point and say "here here I am an illegal".

Use your day off creatively and start packing your bags ? Make a solid plan like gathering together your savings, sell what you can and ask your employer for a reference for your future application for a working visa made at the US Embassy in your country of origin ? Go home and try doing it the old fashioned way that has worked for Millions of people for more than a century. Sneaking in like a burglar, just because you can, because everyone else is doing it...probably not a recipe for long term success, just a sooner or later ticket back. My parents stood in line and applied, it took years and lots of money they had to scrape up and borrow, they were almost denied. They did it the right way. We were as poor as piss.

That might be a pretty good strategy that could get you back in the USA legally and at the front of the line. Just sayin.

Let's be clear. Immigration halted to a trickle starting with WW1. Millions did not pour in until the 65 Act. It was supposed to be a hundred thousand a year, not 2 million legal and 500,000 illegals annually. We grew our population by 100 million due to the 65 Act. Enough is enough. No more immigration. Failed 20th century social experiment.

92% of world is nonwhite and doesn't take immigrants. What do they know that we don't? Maybe those dusky hoards aren't so great.

Shock on a rat with electricity and the rat will figure out the source of the shock put two rats and they will fight each other to death. Very nice job central bankers.
