Invaders flood the streets!

LOS ANGELES (AP) – More than 1 million mostly Hispanic immigrants and their supporters skipped work and took to the streets Monday, flexing their economic muscle in a nationwide boycott that succeeded in slowing or shutting many farms, factories, markets and restaurants.

From Los Angeles to Chicago, Houston to Miami, the “Day Without Immigrants” attracted widespread participation despite divisions among activists over whether a boycott would send the right message to Washington lawmakers considering sweeping immigration reform.

Interestingly enough, the overwhelming majority of businesses that were closed were mexican themed restaurants. So they were protesting themselves? I wonder how much violent crime rates dropped yesterday, with all the invaders out in the streets they didnt have time to assault anyone or steal their hubcaps.

Why wasnt ICE out there rounding these criminals up?
