We'll today is the big day. A day without immigrants according to supporters. Immigrants are supposed to ditch work and not spend any money today. It will be interesting to see how the day pans out. A lot more will most likely miss work than join the protests due to rumors of mass sweeps for illegals — they apparently haven't noticed the mass fear in Washington.
While watching FX's new series Thief on Tivo last night I realized a parallel regarding the illegals. Everyone's favorite warm fuzzy illegal immigration statement is: "They're just doing it to have a chance at a better life." Isn't that why thieves STEAL? They steal to economically better themselves and their families. "No wait, that's different – stealing is against the law…" Exactly my point!
