A Day Without Immigrants – Many businesses in NYC, Los Angeles, Chicago, DC to close

ViewsHeadlines Desk,

Washington DC: Americans are terrified over President Donald Trump’s plans against immigrants and against building the wall on the border with Mexico. With his string of executive orders he has tried to stop people coming from many Muslim nations to the US.

While the judiciary has stalled his efforts to ban Muslims’ entry from seven nations, he has done everything to make it difficult for them to enter the US. Vetting has gone up substantially in the last few weeks. Last week, even a NASA scientist of Indian origin, was detained at a US airport and he was forced to give up his cell phone and give its pin to security officials.

Now the biggest opposition to his plans is coming from common people who have been opposing his anti-immigrant stance.

In the meantime the entire US is bracing for a major shutdown. ‘A Day Without Immigrants’ protests are set to be held across the US. The day is expected to see a combination of boycott/strike that highlights the contributions of immigrants to U.S. business and culture.

Reports suggest that a large number of businesses have decided to remain closed for the entire day in solidarity with the immigrants. There are many others who have said that despite the fact that they will remain open, they will give away share of the day’s proceeds to nonprofits that aid immigrant communities across United States.
