Yemeni Bodega Owners Close to Protest Trump’s Travel Ban

Thousands join demonstration outside Brooklyn’s Borough Hall Thursday.

Thousands of Yemenis across New York City gathered to protest against Trump’s immigration ban in front of Borough Hall in Brooklyn on Thursday. Many Yemeni bodega owners closed their shops early in the day to attend, waving flags and holding signs with anti-ban slogans.

Over a thousand bodegas across the city closed for eight hours from noon until 8 p.m. to protest the administration’s travel ban against seven Muslim-majority countries, including Yemen.
