BURBANK ? Protesters forced a brief shutdown of the day labor centers in Glendale and Burbank on Saturday, when members of the anti-illegal immigration group Save Our State confronted prospective employers.
For the Burbank center, which was closed for more than an hour on Saturday, this was the second weekend the center was forced to shut by what Save Our State members refer to as their "invasion tactic."
The tactic is staged when Save Our State members enter the center, explained Save Our State representative Don Silva.
At the Glendale center on San Fernando Road on Saturday, Silva and another group member equipped with a video camera walked onto the property and asked a patron not to pick up any of the day laborers. The man, who did not identify himself, left without hiring anybody after Silva gave him the address of a business that hires out only documented laborers.
