Some 100 businesses in Reading, and another 24 in Allentown will be shutting on May 1 to participate in the Day Without Immigrants stike planned nationally.

Adanjesus Marin, the director of Make the Road PA announced which businesses would be closing at a press conference today at 2 p.m. in Reading. He was joined by local business owners including Johanny Cepeda, who is the president of the Latino Chamber of Commerce, and Sunilda Tejada, president of the Union Dominico-Americana.

A similar press conference is scheduled for tomorrow in Allentown. Both seek to highlight the positive economic impact of immigrants in the region — which has experienced tremendous growth in the past 15 years thanks to upswings in Latino and immigrant populations. Reading is, in fact, a majority Latino city (58 percent); Allentown’s population is 43 percent Latino, and the city is home to a growing Asian population, as well as one of the largest Syrian populations in the nation.
