Protesters Push Back at Trump’s Order to Keep Some Immigrants Out

Hundreds of demonstrators rush to JFK International Airport to protest the president’s executive order.

Protesters swarmed John F. Kennedy International Airport on Saturday evening after an executive order from the president banning citizens from seven countries, where Muslims are a majority, resulted in detentions at the airport.

Hundreds of people joined the impromptu demonstration to protest the executive order on immigration and the detainment of several travelers including refugees, visa holders, and green card holders, keeping them from entering New York. Many called it a #MuslimBan as travelers from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia and Yemen were detained for hours. At least nine people were detained, according to press reports.
