The results of the Day-Without-Immigrants boycott
This is hilarious! Too bad it's not that far from the truth. Aside from cheap labor for a few industries, this is pretty much what we are importing from Mexico...
On May 1st, as a result of the Mexican boycott,
national retailers reported 4.2% lower sales for the day, with a 67.8% reduction in shoplifting.
It appears that the Immigration March in Los Angeles was a success!
According to data from the Los Angeles County Sheriff, Los Angeles had a reduction in the following:
82% reduction - auto theft
28% reduction - murders/ violent crimes/ rapes
73% reduction - vandalism / tagging
54% reduction - drug related offenses (not including the area surrendering the march)
31% reduction - domestic violence cases
64% reduction - misdemeanor cases (shop lifting, etc)
CHP reported that today was a record low in the least amount of traffic accidents on South CA freeways. Looks like the immigration rally was well worth it. Maybe we can do this one again sometime. Sure saves the State of California a chunk of money!
