A number of restaurants across Baltimore will not open today as they join businesses across the country participating in "A Day Without Immigrants."
The closures are part of a national movement in protest of President Donald Trump's immigration crackdown.
Some of the restaurants participating in the campaign are among the city's most prominent, such as the Foreman Wolf Restaurant Group's properties: Bar Vasquez, Charleston, Cinghiale, Johnny's and Petit Louis (both in Roland Park and Columbia).
Other restaurants that will be closed today include Alma Cocina Latina, Cafe Cito, Ekiben, the Local Fry, Dovecoat Cafe, Sweet27 Bar and Sweet27 Bakery and Cafe, and Alkima and Azafran on Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus.
"We will not operate today in support of our staff without whom it would be impossible to operate at all. #adaywithoutimmigrants," Foreman Wolf restaurants posted on their respective Facebook pages today.
In addition to Baltimore business closures, a rally is set to begin at 1 p.m. at the Creative Alliance in Highlandtown.
