PHILADELPHIA - Immigrants across the country are expected to stay home from school and work on Thursday to show how critical they are to the U.S. economy and way of life.
"A Day Without Immigrants" actions are planned in cities including Philadelphia, Washington, Boston, Houston, Chicago and New York. The protest gained momentum on social media and by word of mouth.
The protests are in response to recent raids on criminal aliens across the country.
In Philadelphia, organizers say they expect hundreds of workers and families to participate.
