Este primero de mayo se espera que cientos de miles de personas se manifiesten en la menos 44 ciudades del país. En Filadelfia, aunque con una historia larga en la lucha proinmigrante, no está claro aún si la jornada será una segunda versión del “Día sin Inmigrantes” o lo que otros han llamado el “Día sin mí”.
