Bridgeport businesses close for 'Day Without Immigrants'
Bridgeport business owners and immigrants rallied Thursday in protest of President Donald Trump's stance on immigration.
The move was a show of solidarity with the "A Day Without Immigrants" protests in cities nationwide.
In Bridgeport, shops and restaurants along Madison Avenue and several other streets were closed for the day. Many of the businesses are owned by immigrants who say their goal was to show the impact that immigrants have on the community.
Some residents also repeated their calls to make Bridgeport a sanctuary city, or safe haven for immigrants.
