UPDATE: This WSB-TV story appears on the Drudge Report’s front page. The story claims 800,000 Hispanics will take part in the “Day for Latino Dignity.”
According to the Gainesville Times, Gainesville’s rather large Hispanic population will protest SB 529 tomorrow:
The way Miguel Rodriguez sees it, the Gainesville-Hall County area may not fully appreciate the economic impact of its local Hispanic community.
Rodriguez, a serviceman for Que Buena FM in Gainesville, said Wednesday the radio station has been broadcasting details of a boycott that encourages Spanish-speaking residents to not spend money Friday in Hall County.
“This is to show how much money the Hispanic community spends every weekend,” he said. “We want the community to see how much they would miss if we leave.”
The radio station is calling for a boycott in protest of Senate Bill 529, to which a state House committee made a last-minute change on Wednesday, adding a 5 percent surcharge on wire transfers from illegal immigrants.
Meanwhile President-in-Waiting Hillary Clinton says the GOP wants to throw Jesus in jail:
Accusing Republicans of betraying family values, Senator Clinton said a House immigration bill would turn “probably even Jesus himself” into a criminal.
