Local shops close for national 'Day Without Immigrants' strike

YAKIMA, Wash. -- A national 'Day Without Immigrants' strike hit close to home Thursday with local shops closing in support of the protest.

Owners of the Fiesta Foods on Nob Hill Boulevard and the one in Pasco closed their doors in solidarity, among thousands of other businesses around the country.

The strike was to support legal and undocumented immigrants in the U.S. workforce by demonstrating their impact on society.

Protests were held across the U.S. in response to the Trump administration's immigration policies.
