Restaurants across the country are now joining the fight in preventing President Trump from deporting illegal aliens, defunding sanctuary cities, and building a border wall.
Roughly 80 restaurants are participating in locations including New York, Minnesota, Massachusetts, California, and Michigan. The restaurants are now requesting sanctuary status to shield illegal workers from being arrested and deported. To do this, the restaurants are attempting to follow the tactics used by churches that are protected with sanctuary status from the government.
Gaining sanctuary status prevents law enforcement from questioning and arresting any illegal immigrants. However, the movement is bogus. Restaurants are private businesses subject to workplace and immigration laws. A sanctuary designation will do nothing to prevent federal agents from arresting any workers in the country illegally.
