These Washington restaurants will close for the ‘Day Without Illegal Immigrants’ protest
Here is a list of Washington DC area restaurants closing for today’s ‘Day Without Illegal Immigrants’ protest.
This will make it much easier for ICE to round them up!
Immigrants in Washington are planning to participate in the “Day Without Immigrants” protest on Thursday. As the day approaches, the list of area restaurants closing out of solidarity or necessity continues to grow.
The nationwide effort, buoyed by social media, is meant to highlight the impact immigrants have on the country on a daily basis. It’s a response to President Trump’s efforts to crack down on undocumented immigrants, enact “extreme vetting” and build a wall along the border with Mexico.
Participants are encouraged to stay home from school and work, which includes many restaurants and bars. Here’s a list of the closings and service changes announced so far.
