A day without Immigrants has garnered some support from the food world as celebrity chefs have closed their restaurants as a protest.
Big names like Jose Andres, Rick Bayless and Eric and Bruce Bromberg have closed their restaurants in support of the cause.
“I am an immigrant myself and a Hispanic Mexican myself[…]We have people that are part of the DNA. They are working on golf courses – maybe owned by Mr. Trump himself – in restaurants, in farms.” Andres said.
The movement aims to show how much the United States is dependent on the immigrant workers.
