What a laughing stock america is. Illegals brazenly invade our country and steal jobs from the citizens and then complain about the wages.

If you want to wave your red flags on May Day, then go back to whereever you came. You won't get much sympathy in NYC.

Tax payers demand illegals be deported. We do not have time to protest because we have to work to support our families and theirs.

Considering the number of people on extended unemployment, it should be Americans working the fields, not Mexicans. If citizens were working these jobs, they'd have more leverage over things like pay and benefits.
The problem is that our government has allowed permanent unemployment to become an alternative lifestyle choice. Being a single parent is no excuse for not working a 5x8 job. If you have four single moms, then three can work the field while the fourth sits the kids. Despite popular belief, an American will pick crops for a living, if given no other choice. They won't like it, but they will do it. There are days when I fell like showing up for work either; but I put my pants on and start my day anyhow. It's really no big deal.

nothing like Americans supporting a communist revolution day. Round up the supporters and kick em in the teeth so we don't have to listen to them spew their "it is all Americas fault/ big business' fault"
It all starts with who is educating our children. Where is our Joe McCarthy.

May 1, or May Day, is not only a Communist holiday, but is also the date on which the deaths of Adolph Hitler (1945) and Osama Bin Laden (2011) were announced to the world.

Hope all you Reds out there had a really nice day!
