A DAY WITHOUT A MEXICAN -- ILLUSTRATED SCREENPLAY & SCREENCAP GALLERY

Oscar De la Hoya

Placido Domingo

[Newscaster] These are people who have helped make our state the fifth largest economy in the world.

[Newsperson] Excuse me, are you Mexican?

[Unemployed Actor] Do I look like Mexican?  Everyday they ask me the same thing.  I am Israeli, I'm not Mexican. 

[Unemployed Actor] I wear little hat, not big one.  Have I disappeared?

[Abdul Hassan, California University School of Policy] This is a disaster.  This is a real serious disaster.  Remember when we used to talk about the Big One coming?  This is it.  90% of the crops in the state were picked by Mexican undocumented workers crossing the border, working the fields 12 hours a day.  God, forget about parking your car at valets.  Forget about getting a glass of water at the restaurant.  Forget about restaurants.
