Some of the USA capital's finest restaurants are putting their money where their mouths are: shutting down for a day to protest President Donald Trump's anti-immigrant policies.

The protest is a response to the new administration's focus on tighter borders and travel restrictions, like the controversial executive order-which, for now, has been halted in court-temporarily barring immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries and suspending our refugee program.

Other restaurants, like Eataly Boston in the Back Bay, are supporting any employees who wish to take part in the strike.

The Philadelphia restaurant owner is one of many restaurateurs across the country closing up shop Thursday, in protest of President Trump's immigration policies. "Whether it be economics, human rights or basic survival, I've never shied away from standing up for what I believe is right".

Cheap lettuce, for example, is said by supporters of immigrants to be available because of migrant farm workers. Several restaurants have planned how they would work out without the employees that would be gone for the day. The bar will apparently remain open.
