A Day Without Immigrants

February 16th, 2017

Today is a day being called "A Day Without Immigrants". Organizers are telling immigrants across the country to miss class, miss work and not shop today as a way to show the country how important they are to America’s economy and way of life. According to the Tribune,The protest comes in response to President Trump and his 1-month-old administration. Trump has pledged to increase deportation of immigrants living in the country illegally, build a wall along the Mexican border, and ban people from certain Muslim-majority countries from coming into the U.S.. Actions are planned on the Central Coast and in cities including Philadelphia, Washington, and Austin, Texas.
