Thursday February 16th was a nationwide boycott by immigrants, to showcase what a day would be like without them. Immigrants were to not go to work, school, or shop in response to Trump’s new immigration policies. With immigrants being the core of this nation, it was a really sad day. This Buzzfeed article shows some of the effects this boycott had in the Washington, DC area. Some restaurants were shut down because all the workers are immigrants, and some business just decided to shut down in solidarity with the movement. Although this day was a reality check for most, it did not change the opinion of some. I hope to see more movements like this in the future, and change to come from this.
IMMIGRANTS MAKE AMERICA GREAT.
