On the same day, President Donald Trump put thousands of coal miners back to work, others were walking off the job in support of the “Day Without Immigrants” protest.
…and even the Pentagon felt the impact of a civil action that intentionally conflates illegal immigration with coming to American legally.
Defense Department employees faced long lines on their lunch breaks after activists led a walkout in the Pentagon’s food court in Arlington, Va., in protest of Trump’s plan to crack down on illegal immigration and build a wall on the southern border, Fox News’ Jennifer Griffin reported.

The protest offers an ideal of how entrenched the liberal mindset is in Washington and the challenge facing the president in righting a ship run aground by progressive policy.
Here’s a sampling of reactions from Twitter by social media users who wonder if we’ll see job opening soon at the Pentagon:
@yjtorbati well at least we now know where are the illegals are working in this country and what companies needs to be examined

@yjtorbati All of them hire illegals so they need to be held accountable for breaking the law along with the illegals.
