A month without immigrants - now that would be hard
Isn't today's "Day Without Immigrants" going to have about as much an effect on the economy as the widely-forwarded one-day gas boycott? I don't know a damn thing about economics, but I would think that a large chunk of the workforce refraining from going to work one day would have about as much impact as, say, Memorial Day does on the economy. I'm glad to see that immigrants are constructing their own visibility, since apparently no one else could make their presence known, but I just don't see why politicians are wringing their hands over this impromptu three-day weekend.
