Today (May 1st or May Day) illegal immigrants and their supporters are trying to show their impact on the American economy by not attending school and boycotting U.S. businesses. Maybe, Cinco de Mayo would be a more appropriate day since the preponderance of illegals are Mexican. However, May Day is Workers' Day in the former communist U.S.S.R., and it hearkens back to when workers' were exploited but given "cradle to grave" sustenance. Further, the Minutemen patrolling the border may remind legal American citizens that "May Day" should be a desparate call to rescue the U.S. from the current crisis of inadequately guarded borders. Will today's actions by illegals engender sympathy or a backlash from American citizens? If they want to procure better PR for their cause, they may want to disassociate themselves from some of their strident demogogues who wave Mexican flags, sing the national anthem in Spanish, and call for force if needed to secure their demands.
