MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Protests are expected across the country on what is being called a “Day Without Immigrants.”

Those who take part say they are protesting the Trump administrations travel restrictions and a tougher stance on illegal immigration.

Schools are reporting students missing from class and some businesses are working with reduced staffing or closing their doors altogether.
