Business close over immigration policyAcross the nation, shops and restaurants closed in solidarity Thursday while others braced for a possible shutdown for lack of enough employees as a "Day Without Immigrants" unfolded to underscore how much migrants form the lifeblood of the country's economy and social structure.

Immigrants in Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Austin, Texas, and other major U.S. cities planned to stay home from work and school as part of a strike. Demonstrators also planned a march to the White House at noon.

Coming on the heels of roundups of undocumented immigrants nationwide, organizers urged legal residents as well as undocumented ones to participate in the boycott in response to President Trump's crackdown on immigration.

Among the White House actions rankling protesters are plans to build a border wall, install a temporary immigration ban on nationals from certain Muslim-majority nations, boost patrol agents to curb illegal immigration and strip federal funding from sanctuary cities that limit cooperation with immigration agents.
