I would like to know “Who” thought this one up. Somebody actually thought it was a good idea for ‘mostly’ undocumented immigrants to skip class, miss work and not shop on this day. This to prove the point that this nation cannot survive without you? I am sure that shop owners might miss the sales, but for the rest of the country will be something completely different.
Business and shop owners will see missing staff and wonder if they should have HR start looking for replacements. They may even have started pulling your employment files and started double checking all your employment paperwork. I am sure that if you went to the big marches or even a little one, there were cameras taking all kinds of pictures and now someone in government is having to go through all social media and other news sources with the top of the line facial recognition software.
While you are thinking about that, you can be assured that those legal immigrants, the ones that followed the law and have all their paperwork in order are keeping that in mind for the day they will be allowed to stand and say the oath to become citizens of this country.
This nation is a nation of immigrants. We all came from somewhere else. There has been some stutter in our steps at times. We even fell down a time or two. We have laws that govern us. We all came here to make something bigger than ourselves. We strive to see a future that does not discriminate by color of skin but how high in self-esteem and confidence that we open the door for the future generations.
For the person or persons that thought up this day, I don’t know for which political side you work, but this could be a good day for those that are unemployed and looking for a job. Those looking for a cheap home that will soon be opening up. For those that are trying to do everything lawful and correctly.
