A national protest against President Donald Trump's statements and policies on immigrants and immigration has spurred the day-long closure of numerous local restaurants and eateries, as part of "A Day Without Immigrants."

The Associated Press reports that immigrants and their supporters re being urged to "miss class, miss work and not shop on Thursday as a way to show the country how important they are to America’s economy and way of life."

KRON 4 reports that local observance of the national civil action will include a rally at Justin Herman Plaza at 11 a.m. and a march on Market Street to Civic Center Plaza at noon, followed by another rally.

NBC Bay Area speaks with the Ajay Walia, the owner of Rasa, Burlingame's Michelin-starred contemporary Indian restaurant, who said he's cancelled hundreds of reservations today, but it's worth it for the cause.

"There is no America without immigrants," Walia said. "Immigrants do feel American. At the same time, especially in our industry, it is important to take a stance."

Inside Scoop is compiling a list of restaurants participating in today's protest. Here's who they say will be closed as of publication time, with more to be added as additional closures are announced:
