Milwaukee, WI – Voces de la Frontera (VDLF) ha confirmado que algunas empresas como El Rey los productos, lo que genera más de $59M en ventas de comestibles y productos decidieron cerrar de nuevo el 1ro de mayo para permitir a sus empleados a participar en la marcha del Día Sin Inmigrantes. El Cabrito restaurante en Milwaukee es otro negocio que se ha confirmado que se va a cerrar, así, de acuerdo con la página de la cuenta VDLF Facebook. VDLF no ha publicado una lista actual de los negocios latinos que se cerrarán hasta el momento, pero la lista está creciendo como lo hizo en febrero.
En febrero, más de 165 empresas latinas en el área de Milwaukee y estatal decidieron cerrar y perdieron más de $1,3 millones en ingresos en un solo día. Algunas empresas latinas que no cierran debido a mantener su negocio a flote se enfrentaron a un boicot por la propia comunidad a la que sirven.
Muchos propietarios de negocios latinos voluntariamente cerraron y tomaron una enorme pérdida de negocio por un día para apoyar el movimiento de VDLF para promover el cambio en la reforma de inmigración y otros asuntos que afectan a la comunidad latina inmigrante indocumentada. Mientras que otras empresas latinas no se quedaron con una opción, pero para cerrar o se enfrentan a un boicot por parte de la comunidad de apoyo a VDLF, de acuerdo con algunos propietarios de negocios.
Parece que en los últimos 11 años, las empresas latinas han perdido más de $14.5M en los ingresos estimados durante el día sin latinos y que no afecta la base económica cual dona fondos para campañas que apoyan a los políticos estatales y federales legisladores republicanos que son re-elegido o elegida/o con la agenda para oprimir a la población latina en Wisconsin hoy.
VDLF incluso ha creado un comité dueño del negocio denominado “Negocios en La Lucha” y los propietarios de negocios en el comité han decidido una vez más para cerrar sus negocios en esta ocasión. Al cerrar su negocio por un día en realidad les más efectos a los mismos con pérdidas de negocio y no a quienes están tratando de luchar contra ellos, que son las grandes corporaciones, los fabricantes y las tiendas comerciales como Walmart, Menards, Pepsi, productos Coors y la lista sigue que realmente ayuda el GOP (legisladores republicanos extremos) hoy y Trump.
Algunos podrían argumentar que las empresas latinas que deciden a cerrar durante el día sin inmigrantes en realidad toman la pérdida de negocio, mientras que las empresas que siguen apoyando a los republicanos siguen con éxito para oprimir. Latinos deben de gastar su dinero en tiendas y negocios latinos dónde los apoyan y les dan la bienvenida y no en empresas racistas donde usan el dinero del latino para apoyar los legisladores Republicanos para oprimir el mismo consumidor latino.
Los negocios latinos deben permanecer abiertos para generar el empoderamiento económico de reinvertir en la comunidad para oponerse y apoyar la lucha contra cualquier intento de oprimir al crecimiento de la comunidad latina, que los latinos y los negocios latinos son también los principales contribuyentes de impuestos y los consumidores en el estado de Wisconsin.
Los latinos aún no han captado la idea de que tienen una potenciación económica y si pueden aprender a manejar su poder económico, la reforma migratoria eventualmente se llevará a cabo. Los latinos deben gastar sus dólares en los negocios latinos y empresas que los apoyan y no deben gastar su dinero en lugares donde no son bienvenidos o sí apoyan el GOP y Trump.
VDLF volverá a dirigir una marcha de la comunidad desde la calle sur de la 5 y oeste de la calle Washington hasta la Corte del Condado de Milwaukee el lunes, 1ro de mayo de a partir del mediodía.

Wisconsin Latino Businesses Faced Nearly $1.3M In Estimated Loss During “Día Sin Latinos” In February

In February, more than 165 Milwaukee and statewide Latino business owners decided to close during a Day without Latinos, Immigrants and Refugees, which resulted in more than $1.3M in business loss just in one day.

Milwaukee, WI – Voces de la Frontera (VDLF) has confirmed that some businesses including El Rey Products, which generates more than $59M in grocery and product sales decided to close again for the May 1st Immigrant march to allow its employees to participate in the march. The local El Cabrito Restaurant is another business that has confirmed that it will close as well, according to the VDLF Facebook page account. VDLF hasn’t released a current list of Latino businesses that will be closing so far, but the list is growing as it did in February.
In February, more than 165 Latino businesses in the Milwaukee and statewide area decided to close and lost more than $1.3M in revenue just in one day. Some Latino businesses who did not close due to keeping their business afloat were facing a boycott by the very community they served.
Many Latino business owners voluntarily close and take a huge loss of business for one day to support the VDLF movement to promote change in immigration reform and other issues affecting the Latino undocumented immigrant community. While other Latino businesses are not left with an option, but to close or face a boycott by the community supporting VDLF, according to some business owners.
It seems that in the last 11 years, Latino businesses have lost more than $14.5M in estimated revenue during the one Day without Latinos, which doesn’t effect the very economic base that supports and finance political GOP state and federal legislators that are re-elected or elected with the agenda to oppress the Latino population in Wisconsin today.
VDLF has even created a business owner committee called “Negocios en La Lucha” and the business owners in the committee have decided once again to close their businesses this time around. By closing their business for one day actually effects them more in business loss than those they are trying to fight against, which is the big corporations, manufacturers and shopping stores like Walmart, Menard’s, Pepsi, Coors products and the list goes on that actually support the GOP (extreme Republican legislators) today and Trump.
Some might argue that the Latino businesses who decide to close for the one Day without Immigrants actually take a hit in business loss while the businesses that continue to support the GOP welcome Latinos to spend their money at their stores so, it can be use to support those legislators working to oppress the very same Latino consumer.
Latino businesses should remain open for business to generate economic empowerment to reinvest back into the community to oppose and support the fight against any attempt to oppress the Latino community growth, which Latinos and Latino businesses are also major tax contributors and consumers in the state of Wisconsin.
Latinos have not yet grasp the idea that they have an economic empowerment and if they can learn how to manage their economic spending power, immigration reform will eventually take place. Latinos need to spend their hard eatned dollars at Latino businesses and businesses that support and welcomes them and shouldn’t spend their money at places thay they are not welcome or do support the GOP and Trump.
VDLF will once again lead a community march from S. 5th St. and W. Washington St. to the Milwaukee County Courthouse on Monday, May 1st starting at noon.
