Short North Eatery Becomes Ohio's First "Sanctuary Restaurant"

A Short North restaurant is the first in Ohio to declare itself a "sanctuary restaurant."  Double Comfort is joining a nationwide movement to support inclusive hiring and service.  The manager says he is simply attempting to take care of guests and employees to the best of his ability. Last week, immigrants working at U.S. restaurants held a one-day boycott to protest President Trump's policies on immigrants and refugees.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
