Events for Deportation Day (aka May Day)

Here is a handy list of the events planned for May Day in case you want to grab some tacos and watch the fun as ICE rounds up illegal aliens while they are protesting for their "rights". It's nice that they even provide contact information for ICE too!

Follow the title link at your own risk - make sure you have a bucket nearby...
