There are many ways you can stand up for freedom, equity, decency, and the US Constitution in the new Trump reality. One is to eat at immigrant owned restaurants to show the owners you support their rights and also to help keep them in business.
I hadn't thought of this until I saw a retweet from Mark Meyer that said Eater would NOT send out lists of immigrant owned restaurants. They write that they've had requests for maps and lists of immigrant owned businesses so that people could patronize and support them. But . . .
"For all that we agree with the spirit of solidarity and inclusion behind these requests, however, Eater will not be publishing lists specifically of immigrant- or minority-owned businesses. We feel that it would be irresponsible to publish guides specifically highlighting restaurants owned by people whose lives and livelihoods may right now be threatened, because of the very real possibility that they would double as cheat sheets to help intolerant actors find new people, businesses, and families to target. In this chaotic moment, we believe it would be indefensible to widely broadcast the cultural affiliations or immigration status of any individuals or their families without their explicit permission."

owners know you are there, support them, and if they have any trouble to let you know.
I suspect there aren't that many people likely to cause trouble, but 1% of Anchorage's 300,000 people is 1,000 people. One percent of that is still 10 people. 49,573 people in Anchorage (some absentee votes are yet to be counted) voted for Trump. (45,700 voted for Clinton.)
