The open border crowd is having a “Day Without Immigrants” protest in several U.S. cities Thursday to oppose President Donald Trump’s immigration polices designed to keep Americans safe.
The only thing missing will be the term “illegal immigrants,” but this is by design, as noted by social media user Mark Romano:
The Left does not confuse immigrants with illegals.

The protests play off a huge rally in Milwaukee on Monday, where demonstrators marched under the banner “Day without Latinos, Immigrants, and Refugees.” The march was in opposition to a plan by Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke that would effectively turn his deputies into immigration agents.
Celebrity chef Jose Andres, who backed out on a deal to open the anchor restaurant in Trump’s D.C. hotel, took to Twitter to let it be known he will close some of his eateries in support of Thursday’s protest:

A promo making the rounds on social media offered the ominous warning: “Mister President, without us and without our input, this country will stand still.”

The hashtag #DayWithoutImmigrants began trending on Twitter, but many responses pointed out how much of a “fraud” the whole thing is.
Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
What a fraud this thing is. We're not opposed to immigrants. We're opposed to anyone who comes here ILLEGALLY.#DayWithoutImmigrants

Is today a #daywithoutimmigrants or, more accurately, a day without illegals? We may find out we don't need them so badly after all

Liberals can identify 50 shades of gender but can't tell the diff between legal and illegal immigration.#DayWithoutImmigrants.

President Trump is ABSOLUTELY NOT against immigrants, he is against ILLEGAL ALIENS. Stop confusing the two.#DayWithoutImmigrants

As a LEGAL immigrant, I WON'T be taking part in any strikes or marches… instead I'll be at work earning my keep! ??#DayWithoutImmigrants

We don't want all immigrants to go. Just illegal ones. The left replaced this important distinction with hysterics. #DayWithoutImmigrants

Hmm, it won’t be so easy to get away with these deceitful tactics if folks like these keep calling them out.
And then, there’s this:
What if no one missed them? #DayWithoutImmigrants
