On May Day (Monday, 1 May, 2006), when thousands of immigrants, documented and undocumented, and their allies, are expected to boycott classes and their jobs, to show the contribution people from outside U.S. make to the U.S. economy and society, Subversity, a KUCI public affairs program presented a conversation with UCI Prof. Gilbert G.
