“A Day Without Immigrants” is a day where immigrants stay home and don’t go to school, work, stores, etc to show that we are needed in society. Even though many people I know are immigrants I do not support this movement. For example what if you barely got your check and you need food and stuff for your family and all the stores are closed because of this event, immigrants are basically hurting themselves. If people would want to have their voice heard you would push forward and show that you are immune to the hate that you get when you go to work and school and still go anyways. This movement is supposed to show Donald Trump that we are important and that we are needed for the economy. By not being present at work and school it’s supposed to show Trump this but this really isn’t affecting him at all. Trump has a large amount of money and I don’t think that it would really do anything and this is why I do not support this day. Overall, I think that we the people are important but, that we should show and express it in another way.
