Today Is A Day Without Immigrants


Businesses in cities across the country prepared to close today as immigrants boycott their jobs, classes and shopping.

Immigrants in Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Austin, Texas, and other major U.S. cities plan to stay home as part of a strike called "A Day Without Immigrants." No organized boycott is planned here in San Diego.

The protest comes in response to President Trump's administration. The President has pledged to increase deportation of immigrants living in the country illegally, build a wall along the Mexican border, and ban people from certain majority-Muslim countries from coming into the U.S. 

Do you think this boycott will make a difference?
