|Back in the Mexican revolution a bunch of armed men enter a convent and start rounding up all of the nuns in the cafeteria. The leader of the bandits starts yelling:
“We are part of the Pancho Villa army and it is our right to take what we want! We want all of your food and supplies!”
Sister Mary yells from the back: Not the chickens, please, not the chickens!
“I said ALL of your food and supplies!” replied the bandit. “Plus, we are going to rape everyone of you!”
“Not Superior Sister Prudence, please! She’s 80 years old!” yelled sister Mary again.
Before the bandit could say anything there was a commotion in the back. It was Superior Sister Prudence making her way to the front yelling: “He said EVERYONE!”.
Here is a list of Washington DC area restaurants closing for today’s ‘Day Without Illegal Immigrants’ protest.
This will make it much easier for ICE to round them up!
Immigrants in Washington are planning to participate in the “Day Without Immigrants” protest on Thursday. As the day approaches, the list of area restaurants closing out of solidarity or necessity continues to grow.
The nationwide effort, buoyed by social media, is meant to highlight the impact immigrants have on the country on a daily basis. It’s a response to President Trump’s efforts to crack down on undocumented immigrants, enact “extreme vetting” and build a wall along the border with Mexico.
Participants are encouraged to stay home from school and work, which includes many restaurants and bars. Here’s a list of the closings and service changes announced so far.

Italian emigration was fueled by dire poverty. Life in Southern Italy, including the islands of Sicily and Sardinia, offered landless peasants little more than hardship, exploitation, and violence. Even the soil was poor, yielding little, while malnutrition and disease were widespread.
By 1870, there were about 25,000 Italian immigrants in America, many of them Northern Italian refugees from the wars that accompanied the Risorgimento—the struggle for Italian unification and independence from foreign rule. Between around 1880 and 1924, more than four million Italians immigrated to the United States, half of them between 1900 and 1910 alone—the majority fleeing grinding rural poverty in Southern Italy and Sicily. Today, Americans of Italian ancestry are the nation’s fifth-largest ethnic group.
|A Mexican man was visiting America.
He wanted to go to a genuine American baseball game so that when he went home, he could tell his family all about it, but when he got there the game was sold out, so he climbed to the top of the flag pole to get a good look.
“What happened?” asked his family.
“Well, America is the nicest place in the world!” he said. “Before the game started, all the people in the stands, and all the players, stood up, looked at me and said, “Jose, can you see?”
Mexicans be like…
|After a long winter, a mountain lion, a wolf and a fox get together and each tells how they spent the winter.
The mountain lion says, “I spent my winter in a pigpen, and each day I ate a pig. The owner counted the pigs, saw that some were missing, and set a trap from which I barely escaped.”
The wolf says, “I spent my winter in a hen house. Each day I ate two hens. The owner counted the hens, brought out his shotgun, and I almost got shot.”
The fox says, “I spent my winter at a construction site where there were lots of Mexicans. Nobody counts those bastards.”
