The Great TACO reBELLion!

Here's another great idea that comes to us from Tony S. of Indianapolis:

Dear IFIRE folks...

Please help me get this message to Minuteman affiliates across the country.

I'd like to counter the Mayday walkout with a nationwide protest by U.S.Citizens...

Call it the "Great TACO reBELLion" and call on citizens to boycott fast food, Mexican restaurants, cantinas, lawn care services, etc. for the whole month of May.

We need to get the attention of policy makers in the same way the illegals and their supporters have, otherwise, Minutemen will be marginalized and we'll lose the country.

Send letters to the editor of your local paper, call your local and national talk radio programs, and share your views with friends and relatives.

This next letter was forwarded to us by Jim of Monroe City:

HOSTETTLER SENDS LETTER TO the u.s. IMMIGRATION
and CUSTOMs enforcement agency

CONGRESSMAN EXPRESSES CONCERN OVER HIRING PRACTICES IN THE STATE OF INDIANA



Dear Assistant Secretary Myers,

There is a report in the Indianapolis Star today that area McDonald’s restaurants are considering cutting back on service on May 1 due to employee boycotts planned that day in support of legalizing illegal aliens. If McDonald’s is concerned that they might not have enough workers to fulfill current production, it follows that many of these workers might be illegal aliens who will be boycotting their jobs that day.

I assume that the message that America is to receive from these boycotts is that if “comprehensive” immigration reform does NOT include a process to legalize those who are currently residing and working illegally in the United States, commerce would be adversely affected. And it would be adversely affected as the result of the Administration enforcing the alien employment laws that have been in effect in 1986.

That being the case, the boycotts would only be relevant if a significant portion of those taking part were actually going to be affected by the enforcement of the current immigration laws. Therefore, a significant portion of those taking part in the boycotts SHOULD actually be affected by the enforcement of the current immigration laws.
I believe it might be helpful in the execution of your duties as immigration enforcement officials to look into the hiring practices of McDonald’s and other such places of employment that are temporarily closing due to lack of workers on the day of the boycott.

Thank you for your consideration of my suggestion.

Sincerely,


John N. Hostettler Chairman House Judiciary Committee Subcommittee on Immigration, Border Security, and Claims
