The Latest In Leftist Virtue Signalling: Sanctuary Restaurants

The latest form of virtue signaling for leftists to show they are anti-Trump is being a sanctuary restaurants.

It's rather unclear what this statement that they will offer sanctuary will now include.

Of course Zingerman's in leftist Ann Arbor has signed on as has quite a few other restaurants in Michigan as reported in Crains Detroit:

Colors and Russell Street Deli in Detroit as well as Zingerman's Deli, Bakehouse, Creamery and Roadhouse locations in Ann Arbor and Zingerman's Cornman Farms in Dexter are among the approximately 80 restaurants participating. Restaurants in New York, Minneapolis, Boston and Oakland, Calif., are also part of the movement.

So will the restaurants now fail to verify employment for their workers which is after all against the law and may expose them to legal sanctions, or is this simply virtue signaling writ large to attract a certain clientele?

A more important question for this movement is: If you fail to pay for your meal and leave any of these sanctuary restaurants, is that no longer an illegal dine-n-dash and now merely undocumented dining?

And when the economy takes off due to President Trump's new policies, will the now re-employed denizens of those cities patronize those places?

I know they'll never have to worry about accepting MY filthy, tainted cash!
