THE BOYCOTT: These demonstrations have their precedent but it's not Martin Luther King's "I have a dream" speech, which didn't feature foreign flags and anti-American slogans. Today's illegal-alien marches more closely resemble the anti-Vietnam movement's cheerful embrace of assorted left-wing dictators. Those demonstrations didn't endear mainstream America to the Fonda-Haydens; I doubt whether Mainstreet USA is going to feel more favorably disposed to the illegals after today. Amnesty? Alex Alexiev reports that Europe's still paying the social/cultural price for its mistaken amnesty policies — let's not go down that road. So how exactly would America fare without illegals in our midst? Tancredo says we'd make out OK. Heck, Tancredo's Colorado would actually come out better:
Colorado taxpayers would save almost $3,000,000 in one day if illegals do not access any public services, because illegal aliens cost the state over $1 billion annually according to the best estimates. Colorado’s K-12 school classrooms would have 131,000 fewer students if illegal aliens and the children of illegals were to stay home, and Denver high schools’ dropout rate would once again approach the national norm. Colorado’s jails and prisons would have 10-percent fewer inmates, and Denver and many other towns would not need to build so many new jails to accommodate the overcrowding. Our highway patrol and county sheriffs would have about far fewer DUI arrests and there would be a dramatic decline in rollovers of vanloads of illegal aliens on I-70 and other highways. On a Day Without an Illegal Immigrant, thousands of workers and small contractors in the construction industry across Colorado would have their jobs back, the jobs given to illegal workers because they work for lower wages and no benefits. (On the other hand, if labor unions continue signing up illegal workers, no one will be worrying about Joe Six-Pack’s loss. Sorry, Joe, but you forgot to tell your union business agent that your job is as important as his is.)
