Speaking at activist Javier Rodriguez, Dayside co-hosts Juliet Huddy and Brian Kilmeade all but broke out into Yankee Doodle Dandy before their live audience.

The topic was the upcoming Day without Latinos march, during which documented and undocumented Latino immigrants would spend no money, skip work and school and march in solidarity to make tangible their contributions to this nation and our lives. Not to mention to "put the nails in the coffin" of Rep. Sensenbrenner's bill that would make it a felony to be an undocumented worker which has already passed the House.

Huddy and Kilmeade would have none of it. Judy explains:

The interview with Rodriguez went well until Kilmeade turned unprofessional and told Rodriguez, "Can you tell them to leave home their Mexican flags?"
Rodriguez ignored that comment and continued to talk about the goal of having Latinos not work or shop to try to show Americans what the economy would be like without Latino participation. When he started to talk about students staying home, Huddy interrupted and told him the students in last week's demonstrations did not know what they were demonstrasting for.
"If you have to dig a tunnel to get in you probably don't belong," said Kilmeade. As a parting shot, Kilmeade said the next time Rodriguez came back they would show him "give and take" which would be "a new concept for him."
