Oak Cliff businesses close for ‘a day without immigrants’

There are so many immigrant-owned businesses in Oak Cliff that’s it’s hard to imagine a world without them.

Most were open today during the “day without immigrants” national strike. But a few closed in solidarity.

El Padrino Taquería on Jefferson is closed, and so is El Rancho Supermercado. Many restaurants are open but short-staffed.

In addition to that, students at Molina High School in Oak Cliff walked out of classes today in a show of support for immigrants’ rights.
