There is a lot of controversy with “A Day Without Immigrants” that happened on Thursday. My thoughts on this is that it really shouldn’t have happened. I understand that most immigrants are being greatly impacted by Trumps actions but I don’t agree that missing work and school was the way to raise awareness. Most kids in my school didn’t even really know the reasons for why they were going to miss on thursday they just wanted an excuse for missing school. The whole point of this day was too show Trump that immigrants are necessary to the success of America when in reality that isn’t really true. America can function without immigrants, a white man can come and work in the field and make more than an immigrant which would raise the price on the fruits and vegetables. I agree that Trump shouldn’t be kicking out immigrants but I don’t agree with the tactic immigrants took. Not working and not going to school or spending money on things is not the way to get the point across.
