RESIST: Businesses Shutter Nationwide for #DayWithoutImmigrants

In response to President Donald Trump's anti-immigrant executive orders and sweeping deportation raids that have led to nearly 700 arrests nationwide, immigrants in cities across the country are walking out of work Thursday for a "Day Without Immigrants" strike, to demonstrate how much the United States depends on immigrants.

Businesses, including restaurants and shops, as well as schools, museums, and even federal government offices are expected to see workers strike and protest.

"Mister President, without us and without our input, this country will stand still," declared a poster announcing the strike that was widely shared on social media.
