NC Affected by Immigration Debate

Facing South has a story about the immigration protests in North Carolina.

In North Carolina, hundreds of Latinos prepared to skip work or boycott all purchases on Monday to demonstrate the financial impact of the Latino community on area businesses. In Charlotte, some employees planned to skip work, including some with the blessing of their Latino bosses.

“We’re hoping that employers stop to consider what this is all about,” organizer Adriana Galvez said. “That if you need people here to do the work, to buy, then give them a legal channel to get here.”

Its interesting because NC has the fastest growing per-capita Hispanic population in the country. So, undoubtedly, this is something that is going to effect all of us.
