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.

Hmmmm. If these business owners had any cojones(it is about hiss-panics right?) they'd have pink slips waiting for anyone that uses this crap to not show up. But nope, they'd rather lose money for the day to "show support" for trespassers. Dumbasses. I probably won't notice anything out of the ordinary. And there are plenty of hiss-panics in Reno.

Good, that labels those restaurants as those who are knowingly hiring illegals.

If we had REAL journalists, they’d look into the background of those workers. Do they have SS cards? Are they paying taxes? Are they paying for Dorkbama the Muslim eunuch care?

Places that Conservatives may well decide not to patronize anymore are self-identifying. How considerate.

Government Employees won’t be able to load-up on calories and expense it back to the taxpayer.

Sounds like another WIN to me.

make a note of what closes and then tell your friends, neighbors, work pals why they are closed , and then boycott them . Force them out of business,.
No jobs they go back home, and the owner loses money.

These “strikes” are so silly. If they had a Day Without “Immigrants”, no one would be working. Everyone comes from an immigrant. What they really mean, but don’t want to say, is that its a Day Without ILLEGAL Immigrants.

“Day Without Immigrants”...If there were no immigrants, legal or illegal, in these jobs, someone else would have the job...It just wouldn’t go away...

This is really stupid when you think about it....

Fire them all...Someone else will be glad to take the job...

ICE needs to be at those restaurants on Friday morning, when the illegals get paid.

The local news in Nashville was all giddy (very pro-illegals here) about a local janitorial company )think they called it TSSI?)who had so many employees out today they couldnt fulfill their contract with the local Tyson plant. Therefore the Tyson plant is having to delay opening today. In my opinion, ICE should immediately visit Tyson and get the name of this other company then show up first thing tomorrow morning. Along with that, Tyson should fire them until they can prove via E-Verify ALL their employees are legal. Of course, by then, their competition who hires legally would have gotten the contract.

I just tweeted the article to the ICE and Border & Customs accounts.
