Cinco de Mayo parade canceled over Trump immigration crackdown fears

PHILADELPHIA -- Organizers of an annual Cinco de Mayo festival in Philadelphia have canceled this year's celebration over fears of an immigration crackdown, according to a report by NBC10.

El Carnaval de Puebla usually attracts about 15,000 attendees, according to organizers, but recent reports of increased arrests of unauthorized immigrants led planners to cancel because of "the severe conditions affecting the immigrant community," officials told the station.

Mexico.

21. Mexicans laugh when we mention celebrating Cinco de Mayo here

American alcohol distributors like Jose Cuervo promoted it to boost their sales. In Mexico, it's pretty much just another day.

25. I'll assume....

that since you have a problem with celebrating Mexico in America that you also have a problem celebrating the Confederate States of America in the United States of America.

27. I'm just helping libs stick to the straight and narrow of their own proclaimed beliefs.

White hipsters snd college students celebrating Cinco de Mayo is cultural approbation. Cultural approbation is racist. Racism is evil. (Except when non-whites are guilty of it. Then it's a virtue).

Liberals need to start practicing what they preach, even though what they preach is.

14,900 of whom probably don't belong here in the first place.

9. Ok

I'm still going to drink my barrillitos and shoot my six shooters on 5th of May philly be damned. I'm in small town TX and we will still celebrate here where it matters. Nobody cares what the big cities do--see November 8th.

11. 5. The hero of the original Cinco de Mayo was a Texan.

General Ignacio Zaragosa, who led the ragtag Mexican forces to victory over the superior French army, was born near what is now Goliad, Texas. "This fact should make Americans, especially Texans, very proud of their connection to that event," said Raul Ramos of the University of Houston. "But often it doesn't resonate. The Mexican aspect of Texas history has been so marginalized and ghettoized, it takes extra effort for people to learn about it."

..Well that's bullshit.

I grew up in El Paso, and like all Texas school kids, took texas history in 7th grade.. we learn all about the "Mexican" history of Texas..

16. It's sad that in America which should be the land of the free that a Cinco de Mayo parade has to be

cancelled due to fear of Trump's Gestapo.

18. Then stop fanning the flames

Legal immigrants have nothing to worry about. Are you saying there are not enough legal immigrants of Mexican decent to populate a Cindo de Mayo parade? Of course not.

Think twice about conflating immigrants and illegal immigrants in the future.

This is a general statement, not necessarily aimed at you specifically.

19. Explain to us how enforcing laws that long pre-date Trump's election is akin to Nazism.

 

Do you think it's Nazism when Mexico -- or any other nation -- enforces its laws?

What would really be akin to Hitler's MO would be watching/encouraging a portion of the nation's population into another country then demanding that country cede territory...

...just like the racist fuck sticks La Raza and Whore-hey Ramos.

20. Hey Argentina

Try crossing over the border to Mexico illegally and see what happens to you.

You want to find out what a Gestapo really is? Do it.

26. No it isn't

You have nothing to worry about if you are here legally.

If you are here illegally than you brought it on yourself by breaking the law.
