Immigrants boycott, rally on May Day
Congress has recently considered bills aimed at criminalizing illegal immigrants and those who "aid" them.

Many workers who wanted to express solidarity with the boycott were unable since they barely make enough money to pay for food and board. Such situations are common particularly among migrant farm workers in many parts of the country.
In addition to the walkout, large rallies are planned throughout the United States. Some predict the demonstrations may compare with those on April 10 that brought hundreds of thousands into the streets.
