Immigrant Advocate Says Latinos Have Economic Clout in Central Ohio.
Protests and boycotts are planned nationwide today as part of what some call “A Day Without Immigrants.” The actions are planned to show the economic might of immigrants and to lobby members of congress considering immigration reform proposals.
