The May 1 Boycott and Walkout

Looks like our friends at Democracy Unlimited are keeping busy. They've sent out notice of a march in support of "Migrant and Undocumented Workers" that starts at 7th and Broadway in Eureka at 10am, then heads to the courthouse. This is part of the upcoming nationwide protest of proposed stricter immigration enforcement.

Proving that our great minds in the State Senate have more than enough time on their hands, the Democrats (it was a party line vote) passed a resolution in support of the protest. Cooler heads prevailed in the State Assembly where the issue wasn't brought up.

I know I've said before that much of what goes on in Sacramento shouldn't be government business. This is definitely one of those instances. But I'm sure they feel better after passing that resolution, don't you think?

I have the feeling that, except for the rallies getting news coverage, no one will notice any effects from this walkout. Just another non- event to make people feel good about themselves.

Legal immigrants are welcome here.

Illegal immigrants should be deported.

There is the link. I thought I should post it.

Why do we need a spanish version when America's first language is english?

Of course DUHC has absolutely NOTHING to do with the organizing of that march on Monday. Its actually a couple of Latino organizers who are putting it together and they've never heard of Democracy Unlimited or David Cobb. Leave it to the Measure T bots to churn out more self-centered crap.
