As part of a national strike against President Donald Trump's anti-immigrant policies, several Santa Fe businesses have closed shop to support "A Day Without Immigrants." We'll keep a running tally here, with each establishment's message. Let us know if we missed someone! In alphabetical order:
Artemisia Native Gardens (26 Quartz Trail, 989-1769)
Closed in support of all immigrants who contribute to the success and stability of the landscape industry throughout the United States. We are all immigrants, except for the Native American's who's sovereign nation rights should be respected. WATER IS LIFE! It is one of life's greatest pleasures, to work with people from all around the world and to learn from and respect the cultural differences that make this world a beautiful place.
