It was called in response to a potential federal crackdown on undocumented workers. It’s aim is to point out the role these workers play in the nation’s economy. Organizer Jose Manuel Rodriguez is with United Latino Immigrants of Florida.
‘Most of the people will be Indian people, Hispanic people and they work in construction, labor in the fields picking oranges, tomatoes and any kind of farm work."
The workers will gather at the Ortiz Flea Market and at 3:00 begin a march to Terry Park. Rodriguez says Hispanics in 23 other states are also taking the day and taking to the streets.
