Employees of a Peruvian chicken restaurant in Frederick will participate in a nationwide boycott Thursday intended to show solidarity with immigrants.

Sardi’s on McCain Drive off U.S. 40 in west Frederick will remain closed as part of “A Day Without Immigrants.”

The boycott of work, school and business is intended to highlight the crucial role immigrants play in the country’s economy and day-to-day life. Formal actions have been planned in major cities including Philadelphia, Washington, and Austin, Texas.

All 10 area restaurants owned by Sardi’s Corp. will be closed Thursday, according to Angel Guzman, the corporation’s district manager. Guzman framed the decision as one made jointly among employees, supervisors and company owners, who are sons of immigrants.

Guzman emphasized that the closings were not a political statement, but one of solidarity with immigrants.

About 80 percent of the company’s more than 270 employees are immigrants, according to Guzman. The Frederick Sardi’s has 16 employees, according to Luis Diaz, general manager of the Frederick location.

Diaz, a native of El Salvador who immigrated to the United States 24 years ago, said his children will not attend school and his family will avoid shopping as part of the boycott.

“We’re making a stand,” he said. “We want to show that the Spanish, the immigrant community is a powerful force in the area, in the country.”

Several Sardi’s suppliers have also indicated they will be closed Thursday, according to Diaz. He did not know if other Frederick businesses planned to participate.

The boycott follows President Donald Trump’s pledge to strengthen enforcement against illegal immigration, including to build a wall along the Mexican border, deport immigrants who do not have legal documentation and ban people from certain Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S.

So when they realize life in America goes on without the immigrants just as well, then what? This is kind of silly. I never understood the hype about Sardis, never had that "great" of a meal there.

JRyan

Very disappointing. I patronize Sardis a minimum of twice a month and have"turned on" many friends and family members. I will not return. Stop the division. I will no longer support Star Bucks.

LEGAL immigrants welcome, all others go back and get in line. ILLEGAL immigrants have already demonstrated a propensity for breaking our laws and should be vetted very carefully.

DickD

And they are worse than all the rest of us?

elymus43

There are a lot of other good restaurants to eat at today.

chesapeakecountry

Anyone who celebrates and supports illegal activity is just as guilty in my book. Another business to avoid!

CRSmith88

I don't think they're supporting illegal activity, this seems like a protest to make a public statement. It gets a little annoying when your daily patrons claim to support the business with their wallets but mumble about immigration under their breath and leave zero tip. Maybe they're sick of those type of customers.....meanwhile high school parents shoe their kids away from food service and manual labor because it's beneath them.

DickD

Some very interesting comments. I learned Sardi's is not a bad place and the Golden Beak isn't either. I will have to put both on my list of places to eat. Our cleaning lady claims to have a green card, but I have never seen it and could care less, she is a good worker. One time I went down to the dump to drop off some recyclables. Before I could, two Latinos asked if I wanted help, I said no, before I could do it, they had done it and I could just say thanks. They are not lazy!

Yes, they should come here legally, but if you were facing death or starvation where you lived, would you be concerned about a law - I wouldn't.

Heck, jsk even challenged me about living in Frederick County, as I have only been here 40 years not five or six generations. Yet, some of my ancestors came to the U.S. before the Revolution, just not Frederick County. Many fought in all of the wars, some died in wars, some were wounded, yet I get this nonsense from jsk.

rpkrauss

The chicken at both Sardi's and Golden beak are comparable but Sardi's menu offers a lot more variety. I've been hearing good things about Rico's but I haven't been there yet.

28WoodenNickles

Those living here illegally, especially with stolen identification have no excuse. That's criminal activity. Anyone not checking for proper identification and/or green cards is an enabler. They come here and hide with family members, have children in hopes that will keep them here as citizens. That has been a major problem in this country. Anyone coming into this country illegal, that fears starvation, persecution or death in another country, can apply for asylum. A grant of asylum in the U.S. does not expire. It can be denied if you committed certain crimes or engaged in other activities that make you ineligible to retain asylum in the United States.
If you are in the United States illegally, the asylum case will be forwarded to the Immigration Court. Asylum can still be granted.

phydeaux994

If they have papers, maybe they are legal. How can you tell?

phydeaux994

Are you assuming that all immigrants are illegal even if they have papers? Do you have proof of citizenship? What if a deputy stopped you and asked for your papers? Oh yeah, you don't look illegal do you? [thumbdown]

ccf84

If I was facing death and starvation and came to another country illegally, I would learn their language and accept there culture, not wave the flag of a country I fled from.

michelle268

Exactly! And they would not fly back and forth every year for vacation to the country that they fled out of fear for their lives.

Charles_Nelson_Reilly

As I turn 40 I've come to the conclusion that 1) there are goofy people everywhere that believe whatever narrative is fed to them because they are both too stupid and/or lazy to think on their own and 2) just because you are good at something, let's say making peruvian chicken, doesn't qualify you as an expert on immigration policy.

Sardi's is overrated and not really that good.

chermom1023

'The boycott follows President Donald Trump’s pledge to strengthen enforcement against illegal immigration...' Essentially, we knew that's what this is all about. We are all American's born of immigrants, not all immigrants ourselves. I can only wonder if the Federal Government actually investigates the I-9 filing of employers to verify if they are here in the country legally to work. Green card, social security number, drivers license, passport's and other legal identification is how all companies should be identifying legal citizenship for employment. Otherwise the business can lose the license and be shut down permanently.

tonyc51

I can agree, but the documents can and are easily forged.

chermom1023

agreed

shiftless88

Clever readers will notice that Mr Diaz did not mention illegal immigration at all. He mentioned "immigrants". So why do so may people like jersey jump to the conclusion that this is all about illegal immigration? You will note the while the article opines about the reasons in the last paragraph, it should also be noted that the current ban is against legal immigration, and a number of people in the administration or advising the administration have been calling for a reduction in legal immigration. Just thought I would point that out.

tonyc51

It must be about illegal immigration since no one in authority has challenged legal immigration.

shiftless88

Then how come all those visas just got cancelled and how come there are discussions of lowering the cap on legal immigrants? I think you've been listening to fake news.

shiftless88

Perhaps you aren't one of those "clever readers" because you miss the point.

Fredmd21704

Is it a day without illegals, or a day without immigrants, because a day without immigrants, means everyone should have stayed home, since were all essentially immigrants.

Whatsup

I'll tell you what I won't do, and that is make any attempt to enter another country without doing it properly. Eventually that will catch up to you. just saying.

jerseygrl42

I doubt their "boycott" will cause any grief, in fact I've never heard of them ...what Guzman and Diaz need to understand and apparently do not after living in this country many years is that the USA is a country of rules and laws and there is a HUGE difference between coming to America with permission vs sneaking in w/o permission. Without it one is simply a illegal alien and subject to capture and return to country of origin and the other point of info for them is that this country allows more immigrants to enter America annually ( more than a million) than the rest of the world combined and for that they both should be thankful and grateful....but this action tells me they simply do not understand the country they have chosen to live in...but have at it fellows....

awteam2000

Jersey, your figures are simply wrong.

Your comments are always full of "alternative facts". I hope you're not lying. I would hope you are better then that. I think you simply don't know what you're talking about.

Fredmd21704

you state her figure is wrong, but you didn't back that up with any fact.

awteam2000

Numerous times I've directed Jerseygirl and other commenters to creditable stats from reputable sources like our GOA, FBI and other federal and independent agencies. But truth gets in the way of your arguments. So, I'm not going to waist my time any more. If you are comfortable with falsehoods to support your arguments, help yourself. But your credibility is nonexistent.

There are facts. There are alternative views of facts. There are alternative beliefs of facts. But alternative facts are simply untruths, lies, falsehoods. That's where Jerseygirl likes to play.

Ellenatodd

Well said.

phydeaux994

jersey, have you heard of the American law that prohibits the hiring of illegal aliens? Use your whole brain when commenting, you always just criticize one side of the issues.

tmulliganjr

really, I worked in a restaurant years ago, hired many "immigrants" had social security and green cards as per law, then INS showed up and guess what...every document was fake...so as a business owner we did the right thing these "so called immigrants" have fake documents...so yes I hired what we thought were legal. but they were not legal. Go ahead stay home I dont care...come to America legally...

Andy Billotti

The food is delicious and the service fast and friendly. Better you don't stop by, they will be fine without your business.

chermom1023

That's great. I'm sure they'll lose some business now after this article. Actually, only the businesses and people that live in close proximity to Sardi's actually eats there on a regular basis. Route 40 has become the new Langley Park. Too much crime in the area, even in broad daylight. The food is good, not spectacular btw.

Boyce Rensberger

So what are the other nine "area restaurants" owned by Sardi's that are/will be closed? Editing lapse.

awteam2000

Sardis has locations throughout the state. One of the more popular locations is in College Park. I use to take my son and his roommates out to dinner there: good food at an affordable price.

Boyce Rensberger

Didn't know that. No relation, I guess, to the Sardi's on West 44th Street in New York, where I ate a couple of times.

teapartier

No, been there a few times also.Sardi's in NYC was established in 1927, known for the birthplace of the Tony Award

hankm44

Probably the most ineffective thing you could do.

shiftless88

Yet it sure started a conversation here; by far the most commented story of the day. Many of these protests are simply to raise the issue to the forefront of the discussion and this has succeeded in doing so. Seems very effective to me.

Andy Billotti

Effective at shedding light on an important conversation. This country would be nothing without immigration. The oppression of the current regime will hamper the future of our country to bring in bright and talented people.

Whoknows

How do you condone illegal immigration? Legal immigration is welcomed. Illegal, no!

thevoiceoffrederick

We had a few people not show, In our company you must request days off, you must call in sick. I guess you all quit, good luck with collecting unemployment, we also screen shot your facebook page post and no mention of sick just more nonsense, all good. Letting a few "quit" will send a message to the hard working people that hold you up and you did me a favor and by not firing you and saving the company from high unemployment ratings.

Fredmd21704

Well, isn't that ironic, they are using their paid for cell phones to post.

newspostreader

You have no right to assume that anyone but them is paying for their phone.

Fredmd21704

who assumed, if they have a cell phone in their hand, then that device is a paid for device. cell phones aren't free.

thevoiceoffrederick

I wonder why the government will fine, penalize even imprison a business owner for hiring someone not eligible to work in this country but not the same for those selling goods and services? When you get your heads out of the sand and wonder, why so many check cashing companies in areas where "immigrants" live and why do they all have wire transfer services? Most send money home for "parents and family" reality, they will go home and retire, they have been doing it for decades. Most don't want to use banks because they don't want to be traced or documented. Any politician creating a sanctuary city. You just violated your oath of office and should be fired if not jailed

vodalone

Power to you Sardi's. You have my unwavering support.

glsbks

I boycott every establishment that supports people who are a law breakers, add to list with Starbucks. Why would a business protest the deporting of illegal felons. Would Sardis look the othereway for someone who robbed them. Maybe it's time for ICE to investigate the owners and employees, how many are illegal and have felony convictions?

Fredmd21704

why Starbucks? They employee veterans.

newspostreader

Because gisbks clearly reads headlines instead of full stories. If he or she did, then he or she would realize they were talking about employing refugees in other countires.

Fredmd21704

Starbucks employing foreigners on foreign soil? The horror of it all! gisbks, several years ago Starbucks started a campaign to employ 10,000 veterans, they are almost to that number now, so where is your support for veterans, or are you boycotting veterans too?

glsbks

You obviously have drank too much koolaid. Goal was10000 of us veterans by 2018, about 5 years. There are 11000+ starbuck in the US. Do the math if you can. It was nothing more than a publicit stunt to reach the gullible. Stabucks announced the immigration hiring as a political statement against the 7 country hyati by Pres Trump.

Boyce Rensberger

Then you should boycott establishments that employ people who have failed to come to a complete stop at a stop sign or who have exceeded the speed limit. Keep in mind that entering the U.S. without a visa or overstaying a visa is only a misdemeanor, not a felony.

phydeaux994

If you boycotted every business that used or uses illegal immigrants to exist, you would not have much or go anywhere. You would have no food, you couldn't afford a house, hotels, restaurants, contractors, vacation spots, would go out of business. The economy would fold without illegal aliens. There needs to be immigration reform that would allow foreign workers to enter the Country legally. Most illegal aliens don't necessarily want to be American citizens, they just want to work to send money to their families in their home Countries. Face the facts! We need foreign workers. They have been a fact of life for the last 60 years and they aren't going away.

thevoiceoffrederick

Hello puppets, while you "stand" for what you clearly don't understand as the law of the land and do not know the difference between legal and illegal continue to drink the kool aid. As for the employees that make minimum wage and live ceck to check enjoy your corporate demanded day off without pay, if you support then pay your people to really support them, hey FNP, good reporting note. that's a good question to ask if your paying staff or not unless you didn't like the answer. this is utter nonsense and time to grow up, Americans have become to lazy to work in the hard working segment of the workplace, they don't want to get up early (even changing high school hours to accommodate increasing laziness) don't want to get dirty, only want to work 40 hours, cant get to work because of a tummy ache or a sniffle. but lets look at the bigger picture, your all cheap!, yes cheap, the reality for low paying jobs is American's want the biggest, the "best" the shiniest things for the cheapest price and they want it yesterday, most likely because they at to lazy, unskilled, lack the motivation the get or create high paying jobs. The same people crying about this cost to mush, that cost to much, or I cant wait till black Friday for the cheapest price. How much for that TV! you want how much to cut my grass! You know this is true and that's why we have a broken cycle. Lesson, RCA, Zenith all made in the us, buy union workers making a good wage to support a family, therefore the products coasted more. but guess what, no one wanted to pay those high prices so, they moved over seas for lower cost of manufacturing, Now your so used to things made over seas you don't even notice that the cars are over priced because not its about corporate taxes. Trump, offer resident worker visa for $5k and no penalty and no harassment let them all stay and work, but cant vote until they become a citizen if they choose and carry on, and move forward. All this nonsense, bickering, and race baiting and stupid race comments need to stop, a divided society will fall and by fall it will be like Russia falling apart, into disarray and forcibly put back together. As for lazy American comments, if you got up and worked on your life , family and business as mush as you ran you mouths an protested then we would be in a much better place. Al these glasses houses and hypocrites'.

joelp77440

Funny, I was going to call you a Trump Puppet.

thevoiceoffrederick

you would, thing is I've dealt with this longer then trump when I lost a job a long time ago when my company relocating, its not a trump thing, its an American worker, American pride thing but since you agree with illegals coming into this country you have no sense of pride in the constitution in the country.

phydeaux994

Why do you not spew your venom against your FC friends and neighbors who hire illegal immigrants? They are the ones that are screwing over American workers by hiring cheap labor.

Andy Billotti

The voice of frederick, glad you aren't calling yourself the spelling or grammar of frederick, typos in sure. The wealth of our country has been gifted to those at the top.

Rally for Immigrants Rights Saturday, Feb 18th 3:00 Market & Patrick Streets

thevoiceoffrederick

yes, block traffic downtown and make the remaining mom and pop shops suffer. go stand in front of city hall where policy makers notice and block them from getting to work. That's Monday-Friday 9-5

Fredmd21704

ive never understood why they protest on the square corner either, they aren't getting any point across there, you protest and picket at city, state and federal capital buildings, not business corners.

jwhamann

Sounds good. I'll be there. I work with immigrants (I don't care if they're illegal or not) from a perspective most on here don't realize exists). They are good people and I want to help accomplish what they want.

Whoknows

No one is arguing whether or not illegals are "good" people. However, "good" people DO NOT break laws. Coming to this country ILLEGALLY is breaking laws! If they want to be here so bad, WHY can't they follow the legal process? Wouldn't it be worth their while in the long run or is that too much "hard work"?!

Fredmd21704

It is today, not tomorrow, not Saturday.

b1sellers

Then they better correct their facebook request

b1sellers

I do think you are wrong - Saturday, 3:00

jerseygrl42

this is NOT about immigrants, why can't you grasp that it is about law breakers and if you did a bit of homework you would find out ( GAO Report) that Illegals cost American taxpayers more than $200 Billion annually and some subset of the 12 Million or so here illegally commit 3 Million crimes annually...so what are you rallying for ...more crime ??? how ridiculous

Boyce Rensberger

Wow! Your claim that GAO found that immigrants without visas cost "more than $200 Billion annually" is way above the $113 billion that Trump himself threw out in the campaign. And that was widely discredited by fact checkers.

And attributing the figure to GAO seems misleading. The most recent GAO report on the matter that I could find was in 1995, and it put the net cost between $2 billion and $19 billion. Would you please post the reference for your claim?

Oh, and by the way, federal spending on *legal* immigrants is WAY higher. And the cost of spending on native born Americans is astronomical--almost the entire federal budget.

Boyce Rensberger

It's interesting to note that the states that cost the federal government the most are almost all "red" states. That is, they get back in federal dollars more than they send to Washington. They cost the government trillions, most of which is supplied in tax dollars by "blue" states.

b1sellers

Actually jersey I have done "a bit of homework" by actually reading the report you keep lying about - you should try it. Read for yourself rather than listen and promote lies. I know you won't, but I am rallying in support of immigrants to stand in support against people who spread lies. So I rally to counter you.
The Rally in support of Immigrants Rights is Saturday. The Day without Immigrants is today. I support both.

tmulliganjr

INS invited? Or is checking green cards illegal?

tonyc51

I welcome all legal immigrants, they bring a lot of good things to America. Illegal immigrants also bring things to America, some good, some not so much, but either way the biggest strike against them is the FACT that they came in illegally.

Boyce Rensberger

The fact is that immigrants, both legal and illegal, have lower rates of crime than do native-born Americans. Why would you want to exclude people who are hard working and law abiding (other than committing the misdemeanor of being here without a visa).

It takes a lot of guts and drive to be an immigrant. Those are exactly the kind of people who make this country greater.

tonyc51

Boyce you are way off in your understanding of the problem. I did not mention a level of crime committed by the illegals verses the legal, I simply stated that some bring good, some not so good. No one has a right to be here unless they are citizens. No one should be allowed to just walk in without the proper process, no one. It is a privilege to be granted entrance to the US, not a right. I am not disputing that many are hard workers, even more so than a lot of citizens. Or saying it does not take guts to break the law to get here. But the point that you and a lot of others chose to ignore is that they are here ILLEGALLY, that means they have no right to be here. Legal immigrants bring a lot of the same attributes that you attribute to the illegal immigrant, but what they do not bring is being guilty of committing a crime (be it a felony or misdemeanor) upon entry, that is why the ones that I am discussing are different (ILLEGAL)>

Boyce Rensberger

I'm not impressed by your argument. Most citizens drive ILLEGALLY on our roads. ILLEGAL, I say!

phydeaux994

Tony, you choose to ignore the fact that it is equally ILLEGAL to hire illegal aliens. If there were no jobs they would not be here. Home builders hire illegal aliens.

tonyc51

PHY, I am not ignoring the hiring of immigrants, I did not discuss it, but you are correct that prohibition should be enforced as well. That said, how does that make any less illegal to enter unlawfully?

tonyc51

Boyce, I am not impressed with your augment that because some people drive illegally that allows immigrants to enter the country as they see fit. It is a non sequitur regardless of the angle looked at.

tmulliganjr

AMEN!!!

cyntiast

Education is such an awesome privilege. Why would you protest by NOT sending your kids to school? That is an American Dream for all our children.

Fredmd21704

I have to agree, he is making a point by losing business for a day, seems oxymoron.

Whoknows

What is it about the word "ILLEGAL" that people do not understand? Why is it not understood that immigrants are welcome as long as they come to this country "LEGALLY"? Sardi's, and many other people, obviously need a tutorial on the difference and how much of a drain illegal immigration is on our system! Seems to me that Sardi's closing for a day is only cutting off their nose to spite their face. In this case, employees losing pay/income, the restaurant losing profit, and most likely losing some loyal customer base all for the sake of trying to prove some invalid point?!

Fredmd21704

maybe he just outed himself to employee undocumented workers?

phydeaux994

How do you feel about the ILLEGAL EMPLOYERS whose jobs attract the illegal immigrants? DO NOT HIRE THEM, THEY WILL LEAVE!! Think people, think!!

Fredmd21704

they wont leave, they'll work under the table.

phydeaux994

If there is no work? They already work under the table, that's why they're cheap labor.

Boyce Rensberger

Immigration without a visa is only a misdemeanor. Such immigrants are not a drain on our system. They are hard working, ambitious people--exactly who we want in America.

Ask employers who hire them how easy it is to get native-born employees. American agriculture, to name just one industry, would grind to a halt without visaless immigrants. Also construction, a field I know well.

tonyc51

See comment above.

Whoknows

Talk about a weak reply. "Only a misdeamenor"? Ok, so that makes it acceptable. Boyce, I think you need to do some research on how much of a "drain" illegal immigration is on our country. Check out the Federation for American Immigration Reform. Illegal immigration costs tax payers $100B per year! YOU help pay for that and the statistics are staggering! How about our veterans or do you feel that illegals should come before our vets? How about our schools and failing infrastructures? How about Americans that are starving? How about Americans that WANT to work and can't find jobs because certain industries would rather hire illegals for a cheaper rate and for whom they don't have to pay benefits? The fact that legal hard-working people are difficult to find is not the issue we are discussing and is a completely separate problem. The issue is ILLEGAL immigration! Which means "against the law". No one has an issue with legal immigration. How about the immigrants that came here by the book? How fair are illegals to them as well as to US citizens? Your thinking is flawed.

awteam2000

Where the Pilgrims legal or illegal?

phydeaux994

The native Americans said "there goes the neighborhood" when those ships appeared above the horizon.

tonyc51

And the native Americans were right. Just as a lot of the US citizens today say of the influx of illegals. Again we are not discussing legal immigrants here.

tonyc51

Different time; different place.

SWY1009

For some reason when we talk about immigration - illegal seems to mean something different than it does with other things that are illegal. I have no issues with people coming here as long as it is legally done.

m21701m

Last time I go there.. Its in a unsafe area anyway.

jwhamann

Oh, jeesh. I live downtown and eat out. There've been quite a few bad incidents involving knives and guns on Market...even resulting in death.

Fredmd21704

that was at 2am, when it was only bars, not restaurants.

Cowell

Sardi's just lost my family's interest to ever contribute to their success. There are other options in Frederick to consider. We spend approximately $700 per year there. Golden Beak is just as flavorful. Adidos!

richardlyons

It's "adios" not that it matters to you amigo.

hayduke2

Rather than be snarky or complain, one should applaud folks who exercise their right in a peaceful and respectful manner. Isn't that one of the values that makes this country great?

teapartier

I applaud all folks who exercise their right in a peaceful and respectful manner to decide where to eat.

b1sellers

Yes it is and I commend them for standing up for what they believe in. Those complaining must live in a privileged bubble.

Fredmd21704

not a bubble, we just know 1 day doesn't make a difference. how quickly we forget the gas protest. did it make a change?

javantalith

I am glad all these places are self identifying for me to boycott.

secpol1970

Go to Golden Beak....I go there all the time.

frazed

These people don't even know what they're protesting. The immigration issues being addressed have NOTHING to do with legal immigration. So.... if the legal immigrants want to lose $ in defense of illegal immigration then knock yourselves out.

Fredmd21704

did you read the story, the owner is paying his employees to take the day off.

tonyc51

I reread the story, did not see where he said he was paying his employees. Did I miss it?

Fredmd21704

it was on NBC 4, sorry for any confusion. Some DC restaurants are giving their employee's a day off with pay, which really defeats the purpose i think. If they truly want to be a day without, then they shouldn't get any free hand outs, they shouldn't be still going to the store, getting gas, still riding the bus, etc.

Fredmd21704

I am sure i can find another restaurant to not eat at.

tonyc51

[thumbup]

livingwell

No problem. I will take my business to places that are open and their employees want to work.

Thewheelone

I think you missed the point, livingwell; it is not that these folks don't want to work, but there just may be something larger than themselves at stake here.

pittski

The point is to cause more divide. Liberals are stupid. Fact

CDReid

You're 100% right. [thumbup][thumbup][thumbup]

hayduke2

pittski -One might say the same about folks like you who post. Fact, not alternative fact.

Fredmd21704

this isn't a liberal or conservative issue...FACT!

m21701m

Yeah the bigger point is that AMERICANS want immigrants to come in legally not illegally. That's something the liberal left never gets right during their "bashing" of the right, its about stopping illegal and unsafe immigration.

Fredmd21704

wait, isn't Trump a conservative who is asking for illegal immigrants heads on a platter? So what does that have to do with the liberal left?

jerseygrl42

right you are!

Fredmd21704

He didn't miss the point, he made a fully understandable point. I am sure they will be back to work tomorrow. just 1 day will not make an impact. they should try a week without, that might actually show an impact then, but 1 day, sorry, nothing will come of it.
