NASHVILLE, Tenn.--Several Nashville businesses are reporting they will be impacted or are closing in support of today's "A Day Without an Immigrant" protests.


According to Packers Sanitation Services Incorporated (PSSI), crews responsible for the third shift (12 a.m.-6 a.m.) cleaning of the Goodlettsville Tyson factory did not report to work early Thursday morning. An employee from the Tyson plant told FOX 17 employees who reported to work this morning were being held in the cafeteria since their work is incumbent upon the work areas being cleaned.

Tyson's Public Relations representative Gary Michaelson says the plan is employees will work after each section of the facility is prepared for operation.

Epice restaurant on 12th Avenue and Five Points Cocina Mexicana in East Nashville have each announced their locations will be closed in support of the protests.



Metro Nashville Public Schools Chief of Schools Dr. Sito Narcisse issued a statement to principals on the potential for immigrant students missing school to participate in the protests. The statement is as follows:

"We are aware that some of our immigrant students intend to miss school on Thursday to participate in nationwide protest efforts. As we have stated previously over the last several weeks, MNPS values our diverse student population and understands that our immigrant and refugee families are experiencing uncertainty and confusion in light of quickly changing federal policies and directives. While we respect the democratic right to participate in peaceful protest, our responsibility as a school district is to ensure students are in school receiving a great education every day. For that reason, all students and staff are expected to be in school throughout the day on Thursday so that teaching and learning can continue. Students who miss school on Thursday without a permissible reason, such as illness, will need to receive an unexcused absence. Please help us communicate this to your families."
