May Day March Likely to Backfire on Protesters

Ya think?

If the folks who want to allow illegal immigrants to become legal residents and eventually citizens are lucky, the planned May 1 general strike to pressure Congress in their direction will be a bust.

That's because even more than mass demonstrations, the work, school and shopping boycott is likely to backfire -- pushing public opinion toward stricter border security without making it possible for such immigrants to remain in the United States legally.

Of course, some immigrant-rights activists understand the potential backlash, which is why there has been division within that community over the wisdom of the May 1 protest.

But for many within their movement, the symbolism of trying to show Congress just how powerful illegal immigrants are by trying to closing down the U.S. economy for a day is too much to pass up.
Which qualifies as the understatement of the year, followed closely by "sure I like crack but I can quit whenever I want."

These folks can't help themselves. They really believe the hype and will pay a big price for the arrogance of their leaders. Don't get me wrong, I'm not weeping crocodile tears here, I'm pleased as punch.

The More Gran Marches, more protests, the sooner we'll see your backsides pouring back over the border.

So, please? Pretty please? Mole on top?
