ASSociated Press: State Senate Supports Immigrant Walkout On Monday

California’s state senators on Thursday endorsed Monday’s boycott of schools, jobs and stores by illegal immigrants and their allies as supporters equated the protest with great social movements in American history.

By a 24-13 vote that split along party lines, the California Senate approved a resolution that calls the one-day protest the Great American Boycott 2006 and describes it as an attempt to educate Americans “about the tremendous contribution immigrants make on a daily basis to our society and economy.”

“It’s one day … for immigrants to tell the country peacefully, ‘We matter … (we’re) not invisible,’” said Senate Majority Leader Gloria Romero, D-Los Angeles, the resolution’s chief author. She said immigrants make up a third of California’s labor force and a quarter of its residents.

Opponents said the nonbinding resolution was misleading because it failed to mention a goal of the boycott was pressuring Congress to legalize millions of undocumented people.

The Great American Boycott 2006 is nothing more than a Mexican “Nothing Gringo” campaign.

Will it be successful?

Yes and no…

The unions will put their folks on the street and all of the Hispanic students in the Los Angeles schools will walk out.

But……even as the LEFTIE organizers obtain a turn-out, there will be a massive backlash.

Chicago Tribune: `Nothing Gringo’ boycott risks backlash, U.S. group says

U.S. lobbyists lashed out Wednesday at the Mexican “Nothing Gringo” campaign timed for May 1 to coincide with the “Day Without Immigrants” boycott in the United States.

The American Chamber of Commerce in Mexico said organizers are risking a backlash and foolishly targeting some of their best allies, since U.S. corporations have lobbied the U.S. Congress for immigration reform including legalization for many of the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants.

Mexicans’ refusal to “buy American” on May 1 could further polarize the debate and make reform supporters seem anti-American just as lobbyists are trying to persuade lawmakers in Washington to pass a bill that would benefit immigrants, said Larry Rubin, the chamber’s chief executive.

“This is like shooting oneself in the foot,” Rubin said. “U.S. companies have been the first to lobby, launching a huge lobbying effort for immigration reform. … Why hurt something that is helping you?”

Immigrants and their supporters in the United States are being encouraged to skip work and school and not spend money for one day to demonstrate the immigrants’ importance to the U.S. economy.

South of the border, Mexicans are targeting American stores and chain restaurants. “That means no Dunkin’ Donuts, no McDonald’s, Burger King, Starbucks, Sears, Krispy Kreme or Wal-Mart,” reads one e-mail making the rounds.

Let them protest but the Congress will get the message. Do immigration reform wrong like President Bush and the Kennedy-McCain immigration amnesty bill and you will have more protests later……

But, we AMERICANS vote too.

So, contact the White House, your United States Senators and Congressmen/women tell them:

BORDER SECURITY FIRST, ENFORCE IMMIGRATION LAWS and NO ILLEGAL ALIEN AMNESTY in pending immigration reform bills.

A cross-section of Hispanic groups is not supporting the May Day walk-out:

Pajamas Media: ‘You don’t speak for me’ 

With the the May 1 illegal immigrants boycott approaching—a boycott of jobs, schools and business (‘Nothing Gringo’ Day to some)—another group plans to make its collective voice heard on the subject. This group is planning a press conference on the same day, featuring “a cross section of the Hispanic American community: lawyers, doctors, teachers, scientists, former government and military officials, who are immigrants and children of immigrants.”

The ill-conceived idea (by International ANSWER) to conduct this nation-wide boycott on May Day, a holiday celebrating socialism and communism, is “a sure fire way to upset American citizens,” says James Hudnall. Unfortunately, this proposed event is bringing out the worst in already twisted individuals.

irannukeapr27fweb8gx Iran Nuclear Watch: Rice   United Nations MUST Take Action on Iran

US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said that the UN Security Council “has to act” in response to Iran’s failure to allay international concerns over its nuclear plans.

AFP: UN must take action on Iran: Rice

US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said that the UN Security Council “has to act” in response to Iran’s failure to allay international concerns over its nuclear plans.

The United States believes… that in order to be credible the security council of course has to act,” she told reporters on the sidelines of talks with her NATO counterparts in the Bulgarian capital Sofia.

“I would certainly hope the Security Council is prepared to take some action,” she said, adding that “it is highly unlikely that Iran will accede to the demands of the international community.”

But Rice played down talk of military action against the Islamic republic, saying: “I have been talking with my colleagues around the world concerning a diplomatic agenda with Iran. We are committed to a diplomatic course.”

Measured responses from the United States and when the IAEA report is released…….

irannukeapr27cpgweb7jj Iran Nuclear Watch: United States   Russia Nuclear Cooperation Agreement?

A 2005 file photo showing President Bush (L) and Russian President Vladimir Putin in Pusan, South Korea November 18, 2005. The United States is discussing the possibility of a civilian nuclear energy agreement with Russia that could help wean Moscow away from cooperation with Iran, according to U.S. officials.

Reuters: US mulls nuclear cooperation agreement with Russia

The United States is discussing the possibility of a civilian nuclear energy agreement with Russia that could help wean Moscow away from cooperation with Iran, according to U.S. officials.

The move comes as Western powers are increasingly alarmed about what they say is Iran’s determination to produce nuclear weapons.

Diplomatic efforts to persuade Tehran to reverse course so far have been frustrated, in part because of U.S. and allied differences with Russia, the only major power still engaging in lucrative nuclear cooperation with the Islamic republic.

In recent interviews, several U.S. officials said a possible nuclear energy accord with Moscow is under review. They spoke anonymously because the issue is sensitive and no final decision has been made.

Such an agreement would be a significant change in U.S. policy, which now prohibits most nuclear cooperation with Russia because of Moscow’s pivotal role in building Iran’s $800 million nuclear power plant at Bushehr.

A cooperation agreement is “something that we’re actively evaluating” and have discussed with the Russians over the past two months, one official told Reuters.

“It would provide a foundation for greater (U.S.-Russia) cooperation but doesn’t commit the sides to any particular project and could be a way of demonstrating to the Russians how much larger our market is than what exists in Iran,” he added.

Russia has long defended its nuclear cooperation and conventional arms sales to Iran as a critical revenue source.

The CARROT for Russia…..

Will they pull out of Bushehr and further isolate Iran?

While Russia remains committed to Bushehr, U.S. officials say work has slowed and Moscow still has not delivered critical nuclear fuel for the reactor.

Robert Einhorn, a former top U.S. nonproliferation official, said a nuclear agreement with Russia is a sound idea “but whether by itself it will constitute a sufficient carrot for Russia to take a tougher position on Iran remains to be seen.”

IAEA report is due tomorrow….a leak today?
