May Day Protects rally brought hundreds to Downtown San Diego. While unions traditionally march on May 1 for solidarity and workers right, this march was more a rallying point for immigrants’ rights. As protestors bypassed businesses in route to Edward J. Schwartz Federal Building they were cheered on by most immigrant service workers raged against Donald Trump policies on immigration. With both left and right demonstrators and presence of organized finest, this 1st Amendment exercise was peaceful.
With current administration policies that aggressively threatening to withhold funds from jurisdictions that limit its local law enforcement to enforce immigration laws, faces within the historical meaning of legislative punishment, viewed in terms of the type and severity of burdens imposed.

The legal fiction that deportation following a criminal conviction is not punishment is difficult to reconcile with reality. While the case law does not tell us where the line falls that divide permissible from impermissible effects, we know the matter of degree is somewhere between imprisonment and banishment to exile and to get a point across, the protectors vows to fight back by assuming more role in civil participations and calling more strikes and boycott to reflect on immigrations’ labor and purchasing power.
Socialist Equality Party also allude that; to stop the attacks on immigrates began with advising international solution to the crisis facing immigrants’ workers. The strategic perspective according to Socialist Equality Party it’s a fight that should begin with the rejection of all attempts to divide native-born and immigrant’s workers.

Accordingly, international working class unity and reorganization of world economy its a kernel to meet social needs of the working class and a foundation against mobile corporations that intensify the exploitation of the working class through globalization.
