Needed: May Day & Sept 1 General Strike for Amnesty for Undocumented Immigrants

The only viable solution to the failed immigration policies in relation to undocumented immigrants is TOTAL AMNESTY FOR ALL THOSE WHO CAN PROVE THEY HAVE BEEN HERE A YEAR. It worked in 1986 and it can certainly work now. The only reason the Democrat-Republicans refuse to support amnesty as they are union-busters as the economy is ripe for labor organizing.

We have been hearing from immigrant rights people that NOW IS THE TIME to do something. The only thing that can be done is to DEMAND TOTAL AMNESTY NOW. In 2006, millions of workers, mostly Latino, walked off their jobs and onto May Day marches to stop the anti-immigrant Sensenbrenner bill and won! LABOR CREATES ALL WEALTH, including profits. When labor withdraws its hand, nothing moves and no profits are made. Profits is all the Democrat-Republicans care about. On May 1 and on September 1, as the harvest is due, there must be a nationwide general strike for total amnesty, and we should have May Day marches of millions of people every single year to demonstrate labor's strength as that is the only way anything will improve.
