Anyone recall their day on May 1st, 2006? I can, because it was the only time I drove on the 405 without any traffic or congestion.

It would truly be a day to cherish if all the illegal alien Mexicans were to disappear like they did on May 1st. It would be a wonderful day in all neighborhoods in Southern California. The sun would shine, the birds would sing and we could all live again like God and country intended.

I don't know about all other crimes, but I do know the store merchants were totally blown away when they discovered how the shop lifting statistics fell to an amazing low, for the day.

No doubt. If they were smart, they would have never given us a taste of what it would be like without immigrants. It was an incredibly peaceful experience--well except for the protesting part .

That was "A Day Without Immigrants" -- not a celebration of a day without ILLEGAL immigrants.

I don't know about the rest of you, but my parents are NOT American Indian and my grandparents were all immigrants here even though they immigrated here in the 1800s.

I wasn't aware so many posters here were of American Indian ancestry! How lucky for you! Now with the casinos you must all be very wealthy!

Call it what you like, all I could see was Mexican flags being waved by mexicans. I must have missed the part where all the Germans, Irish, Etc. were marching... Can you tell us where they marched ???

They marched. You must have missed all the Beverly Hills housewives out there. They were the blondes with the nice manicures.

"As you know, today was Don't Take Your Illegal Immigrant To Work Day here in Los Angeles. No, all across the nation they had a Day Without Immigrants, is what they call it. Or, as Native Americans call it, the good ol' days." --Jay Leno

"In Orange County, President Bush was talking about immigration. Bush said that massive deportation is unrealistic. He said you can't just move 12 million people to another country. I don't know, Mexico did it." --Jay Leno

"President Bush is going to address the nation Monday night on the immigration issue. Bush said he would have given the address tonight, but they couldn't get the 'Mission Accomplished' sign finished in Spanish soon enough." --Jay Leno

"In his speech, he outlined a plan to start patrolling the U.S.-Mexican border using members of the National Guard. He said this will give us the most secure border in the world one weekend a month and two full weeks in the summer. ... This will replace our old method of border control: the honor system." --Jay Leno

"Thousands of legal and illegal immigrants staged what they called a Day Without Immigrants. Or, as it's known in Utah, Monday." --Conan O'Brien

"As you know, there were lots of huge marches around the country yesterday to protest the immigration laws. The marches had quite an impact on businesses. Restaurants had to close, construction sites had to shut down, the Yankees had to forfeit a game. ... Do you realize that Americans are now doing the jobs that immigrants won't do because they're out protesting?" --Jay Leno

"This problem with illegal immigration is nothing new. In fact, the Indians had a special name for it. They called it 'white people.'" --Jay Leno
