New York's Yemeni community is uniting to oppose President Donald Trump's travel ban restricting immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries.

Organizers of a planned protest Thursday say more than 1,000 Yemeni-owned grocery stores and bodegas will be closed from noon to 8 p.m. so owners can spend time with their loved ones and attend a rally at Brooklyn's Borough Hall.

A Facebook post promoting the protest and encouraging others to participate in the demonstration made the rounds on social media Wednesday.

"This shutdown of grocery stores and bodegas will be a public show of the vital role these grocers and their families play in New York’s economic and social fabric and, during this period, grocery store owners will spend time with their families and loved ones to support each other," the post reads.

A flier designed for store owners to post in their windows announcing their participation also asks protesters to share their stories on social media using the hashtags #MyYemeniNeighbor and #UnifyandDefy.

Many of the city's delis, groceries and bodegas are owned and operated by Yemeni immigrants, and some of those have been directly affected by Trump's executive order, either because they were personally prevented from traveling or because a family member was detained at an airport upon their return to the United States.

Organizers said the idea is to show the public the role these businesses play in New York's economy.

"We want to show the people that we take care, we're trying to take care of our families, our friends. We are together. We are one hand, even," said organizer Masged Ltuliuli. "Also, I hope for American people to help us with this."

"We're all going to be one people," said one business owner. "Doesn't matter where you're from, from Italy, Asia, Chinese, South America. We're all human."

Twitter user @DebbiAlmontaser posted a confessional video to remind viewers that Trump's executive order has impacts beyond the immigrant community.

In that video - which web users can see below - an emotional man recounts having just visted his local bodega only to find that his friend who works there was unable to return to the U.S. after a trip to Iraq.
