In connection with a nationwide grassroots protest effort, immigrant advocacy group FIEL Houston is holding a rally today in opposition to what some see as a crackdown on undocumented immigrants. A Day Without Immigrants, or Un Dia Sin Inmigrantes in Spanish, asked immigrants—regardless of legal status—to not go to work or school, not to shop or dine out as a form of boycott.

According to an event posted on Facebook, the rally will be held at Guadalupe Plaza, 333 S. Jensen Drive, Houston, at 6 p.m.
