For other people like me, who are not in Madison, the Day Without Latinos protest in Madison is going on full force. I've not seen a crowd like this at the capitol since the Act 10 protests. More power to them. Sadly, the anti-immigrant laws are but a small portion of the "Big Pot o' Bad Ideas" racing through the legislature. With over 100 bills roaring through it's pretty hard for anyone to keep track, including the legislators.
As to the reaction of our governor and the rest of the GOP - pretty much the same as always. People of the state don't count -- we and our contributors know what's best for you. Protests are just a distraction from what's important.
