Organizers said on Facebook: “The Trump administration has continuously attacked immigrant communities. This past week there have been hundreds of arrests by ICE, spreading fear and panic throughout our communities all over the country. Most recently, Daniel Ramirez Medina was taken into custody despite being a DACA recipient. This Thursday at 5pm, we rally in front of the Department of Homeland Security Building to demand that ICE #FreeDaniel and stop #ICERaids operations and arrests that are targeting everyone and tearing families falling apart.”

Los organizadores dijeron en Facebook: “El gobierno de Trump ha atacado continuamente a las comunidades de inmigrantes. La semana pasada han habido cientos de arrestos por parte de ICE, extendiendo el miedo y el pánico a través de nuestras comunidades en todo el país. Más recientemente, Daniel Ramírez Medina fue detenido pese a ser un receptor de DACA. Este Jueves a las 5pm, nos reunimos frente al edificio del Departamento de Seguridad Nacional para exigir que ICE #FreeDaniel y para detener las operaciones de redadas de ICE y los arrestos que están apuntando a todo el mundo y están separando a las familias.”

Hoy también se realizó “Un Día Sin Inmigrantes.” Es una combinación de boicot/huelga que destaca las contribuciones de los inmigrantes a los Estados Unidos de América.

El Diario NY escribe, “La finalidad de la campaña es demostrarle, según la imagen de la convocatoria, al presidente Donald Trump que sin la labor de estos trabajadores EU se paraliza.

Conforme a Mundo Hispánico y Univision, muchos migrantes legales e indocumentados corrieron la voz, pero nadie parece tener claro quién está detrás de esta convocatoria.

El aviso en redes se titula “Un día sin inmigrante” y pide a “indocumentados, residentes, ciudadanos, inmigrantes de todo el mundo” que mañana jueves no vayan a trabajar, no hagan compras, ni manden a sus hijos a la escuela en señal de protesta.”

Today, people celebrated “A Day Without Immigrants.” It is a combination boycott/strike that highlights the contributions of immigrants to the U.S. of America.

NPR writes, “The movement is a response to President Trump’s immigration agenda, which includes a pledge to seal the U.S. border with Mexico and a travel ban on citizens of seven majority-Muslim countries (which is now on hold).

Some businesses are closing for the day; others are staying open and pledging to contribute a share of the day’s proceeds to nonprofits that aid Latino communities. In a number of cases, business owners are abiding by their staffs’ wishes, after holding votes to decide whether to open.”

If you don’t want undocumented immigrants, go pick your own tomatoes, fruits, build your house, etc.
