Why May 1st is chosen for "Day Without Immigrant"

The correct title of this day should really be "Day Without an Illegal Alien" and according to Wikipedia this is the significance of having chosen May 1st:

May Day is now more commonly celebrated as a commemoration of the Haymarket Riot of 1886 in Chicago, United States which occurred on May 4, but was the culmination of labor unrest which began on May 1. The date consequently became established as an anarchist and socialist holiday during the 20th century, and in these circles it is often known as International Workers' Day or Labour Day. In this form, May Day has become an international celebration of the social and economic achievements of the working class and labor movement.

One pro-illegal guy (Nativo Lopez) wants May 1st to become a FLOATING HOLIDAY. That would be the epitome of outrageous since it has COMMUNIST significance. You better believe there will be a HUGE backlash if that is even considered by any politicians.
