Several Ward 6 Businesses Close Feb. 16 in Solidarity
Several Capitol Hill, Union Market and H Street businesses have closed for the day Feb. 16 to support the #DayWithoutImmigrants movement around the country.
In protest of the Trump Administration's crack down on undocumented immigrants, owners of restuarants and businesses who either are immigrants, employ them or support them chose to shut their doors Thursday in solidarity. The intent — show the country what America would look like without immigrants.
Here's a list of local closures:
Acqua al 2 (212 Seventh St. SE)
Belga Cafe (514 Eighth St. SE)
DC Empanadas (1309 Fifth St. NE), Union Market (and food Truck)
