Welcome to May 1. It’s the day to hate the Yankees. That is: Americans, not the baseball team. Via Mexidata:

In Mexico, what began as a vague appeal for cross-border solidarity on the Internet is snowballing into a movement as well. In various parts of the country, labor unions, regional and local business groups, and ex-bracero associations are supporting a one-day boycott of US products and businesses.

For me, the protest serves a double purpose: I get to support the immigrants and I also get to express my slightly anti-Yankee sentiments,” said Mexico City cafe owner Joaquin Garcia Nava.

As in the United States, the Roman Catholic Church is adding legitimacy, voice and presence to the movement. And the bishops of the Mexican border cities of Ciudad Juarez, Tijuana, Mexicali, Nogales, Reynosa, Nuevo Laredo, and Piedras Negras have all endorsed the May 1 action.

Lonewacko keeps track of the who’s who behind the boycott.

North Carolina got a jump-start with an illegal alien rally yesterday. The Cultural Report has photos and details, and witnessed one zealot urging illegal immigrants to “Break the rules!”

The Open Borders Business List (via AP):

Some big businesses were shutting down operations: Six of 14 Perdue Farms plants will close; Gallo Wines in Sonoma, Calif., was giving its 150 employees the day off; Tyson Foods Inc., the world’s largest meat producer, planned to shut five of its nine beef plants and four of six pork plants.
