Immigration Protest Follow-up May 1, 2006

Posted by moverstreet in Politics/Public Policy.

From the hispanic markets of California to the county-seat farms of Vidilia, GA, (home of the famous onion), thousands of immigrants and protesters walked off the job in protest of the country’s immigration legislation.

From shuttered chicken houses to restaurant closings, the nation saw little in the way of the national effect expected from the boycott. The protest does, however, display the power of the few to rally and cause a nationwide ripple.

Whether for good or evil–every American should take notice of today’s events and remember the power of the unified voice.

Christians could learn something, too, from the power of the singular purpose that drives these throngs to walk in unison. Then, perhaps evangelicals could spread Christ’s message with similiar passion to the nations (including our own) that desperately need Him.
