When White House Staffers Can't Discuss Banning Immigrants At Their Favorite Power Lunch Spot

When White House Staffers Can't Discuss Banning Immigrants At Their Favorite Power Lunch Spot

If Trump got his way, it might feel something like today.

A bunch of restaurants and other businesses in DC and nationwide are closed in solidarity with a 'Day Without Immigrants'.

José Andrés, who pulled his planned restaurant for the Trump International Hotel after the candidate's 2015 comments about Mexicans, explains in an interview with NPR: "We have over 11 million undocumented immigrants in America. They are part of the American DNA. They are taking care of our farms, our golf clubs, our wineries, our fishing boats. We need to be giving those 11 million undocumented in America the right to finally belong."

Looks like the Carl's Jr. guy gets the day off too.
