100-plus Twin Cities businesses shut down, stand in solidarity with immigrants

 

February 17, 2017



More than 100 businesses around the Twin Cities shut their doors, immigrant workers left their jobs, and marchers took to the streets Thursday as part of the nationwide “Day Without Immigrants” protest.

The event, organized via social media, urged immigrants, regardless of their legal status, to stay away from work, shutter their businesses, hold their children out of school and refrain from spending money to protest President Donald Trump’s views and actions on immigration.
