Another May Day Boycott
Local Denver illegal immigrant activists and open borders advocates have also called for a week-long boycott at the end of March, this boycott appears to be a rehash of last year's May "festivities" (h/t Moonbattery):
Immigrant and worker rights groups called Thursday for an end to raids and deportations of illegal aliens and are planning a May Day boycott to press home their demands.There is no such thing as a right to be here or in any country illegally. What they are seeking is amnesty, and are ready to paint anyone who opposes them as knuckle-dragging xenophobes.

Participants in the "Great American Boycott" say they will not shop, work, go to school or participate in any economic activity on May 1, but will instead hold rallies.
The movement's website encourages supporters to join with them "against a common enemy: the U.S. government." Similar campaigns last spring called for pro-immigrant reform.
At a press conference Thursday, speakers from organizations including labor and anti-war groups spoke out against the crackdown.
Bishop Felipe C. Teixeira of the Immigration Pastoral Center in Massachusetts said that the recent raids had shown "the face of racism and discrimination."
"No human being is illegal," Teixeira said. "Together, united, we can defeat the imperialism of the U.S.A."
Emma Lozano of the Chicago immigration-rights group Centro Sin Fronteras suggested that the best way to gain recognition from the government was to use economic power.
"We need to stand up and show them that we will hurt them in their pockets," Lozano said.
"This country has exploited the undocumented labor for over a century and grown rich off of it," she said, adding that "we are not asking for anything, we are demanding our rights."
Defending/enforcing U.S. laws on immigration=imperialism, racism, and discrimination.
