Cities to be Closed

Taking a page from the French, millions of Latinos are planning to take to the streets of major American cities (assuming there are Latinos in or near them) to protest in support of amnesty for illegal immigrants.

The protests are expected to be the largest since the civil rights era of the 1960's with 2 million expected to be in Los Angeles alone.

Critics of the protests are charging intimidation and perhaps misdirection. For if the protestors are going to shut down these cities, which are generally amongst the more liberal and pro-immigration, aren't they in effect just pissing off their supporters? 

A number of businesses have already planned to close to allow their workers to attend the ralies.
