Go celebrate it in MEXICO!
Meanwhile we will celebrate the 4th of July!!
more daily win!!
More Win. Go Trump. Bar owners are really going to be pissed, though.
Aw darn, their on to us.
Why would Mexicans in this country legally, fear immigration officers going to the Cinco de Mayo parade??? If you are here legally, by definition, there is nothing to fear.
Mexican Independence Day is actually in September. Cinco de Mayo is a made up gringo holiday.
Last year they had a march of illegals in southern California and I wondered why ICE didn’t just cordon off each end of the street and check IDs.
What ever it is they can go celebrate it in Mexico.
they will now actually start living/ hiding in the shadows? Go home!
Good. Celebrate Columbus Day.
Those who have broken no laws, have nothing to fear. It is only the criminal element that should worry.
It’s not “the immigrant community” that needs to fear anything! It’s the illegal alien community. Immigrants are here LEGALLY and have nothing to worry about!
Great! Celebrate two 4th of July’s this year.
Independence Day from Cinco de Slave day.
Anheuser-Busch InBev is not pleased.
Time to ride in the wah-mbulance.
Trump’s policies are working.
No kidding. I guess this is what Hillary and the democrats meant by “taco bowl” outreach in their emails.
Yea! Mexico won a single battle while losing a war against France. Let’s drink Corona ‘til we puke.
Why are they hidding if they are not illegal?
