MEXICO CITY - Nothing gringo, warns the rallying cry of Mexican activists calling for a boycott of all U.S. businesses south of the border on May 1.
The campaign, aimed at pressuring Congress to legalize undocumented migrants, was timed to coincide with The Great American Boycott, in which activists are urging migrants in the United States to skip work and avoid spending money to demonstrate their importance to the U.S. economy.

I am so sick of these people.
Racism and communism -- perfect together.
Which is exactly the amount of sympathy you will get from me. Now go the F home.
I am still of the mind that the Mexicans are overestimating their impact on our economy. Drastically overestimating their impact.
May 1 will come and go with no economic impact, with the exception of small pockets in Kalifornia, Arizona and Texas where illegals are the majority.
We need a list of places they're boycotting. They'll be nice to patronize for a change. I went two places today where all I heard was Spanish, and I'm not exaggerating. Outside of my party, *nobody* was speaking English. Chinese restaurant and Sears, in the suburbs of Dallas.
Also, my old elementary and middle schools have two-sided announcement boards, like just about every school in America. Unlike every school, they have Spanish on the side facing the main road. You have to go out of your way to see English announcements.
So, boycott. See ya. Or, hopefully, not.
“Nothing Gringo”??? GOOD LUCK finding anything "Gringo", all you America-haters!
To our unwelcome guests south of the border who have made illegal incursions into our nation: The stuff you see in Wal-Mart and Target? It's all made in China
Anybody still doubt that these people would rather have America leave than leave America? This isn't about citizenship, its about reconquering the Southwest for Mexico.
Why stop there? Please just boycott the entire U.S. and sneak over into South America instead?
Lets not shop in Tijuana, Juarez, etc and see how long they'd last.
So why don't we declare a date to not buy anything, or buy something the day prior to the boycott date and return it for a refund on boycott day? That would be fun.
"Lets not shop in Tijuana, Juarez, etc and see how long they'd last"
Why on earth would anyone go to Tijuana or Juarez to shop?
I haven't seen school announcements like that, two-sided, here in Los Angeles. Not that I have traversed the whole city.
Hey, I might boycott Mexican food that day.
