These Washington restaurants will close for the ‘Day Without Immigrants’ protest
washingtonpost.com ^ | 2/16/2017 | Becky Krystal

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.

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...

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.

Since we are “a nation of immigrants”, anybody, with the exception of Native American, who goes to work today is an idiot. It’s “immigrants” day.

It would be great for the usual patrons of ALL of those places mentioned to take a year off from eating there.

I would love the see this foolishness backfire in the owner’s faces, especially in their wallets.

I used to like Bub & Pops. They have good food and they lost a son in Afghanistan last year but except for the chef and his parents, the guys in the kitchen are all foreign. If they care more for political gestures and employing shady people to handle my food then I’ll take my money elsewhere. The kid at Subway is stupid and moves like an elderly sloth but at least I can be confident that he’s had all his shots and isn’t carrying typhoid.
