These Washington restaurants are closed for the ‘Day Without Immigrants’ protest

By Becky Krystal

Immigrants in Washington are participating in the “Day Without Immigrants” protest on Thursday, and 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.
