Tue Feb 7 2017 (Updated 02/10/17)Trump's Muslim Ban Protested Nationwide
Tue Feb 7 2017 (Updated 02/10/17)Thousands Demonstrate at Airports as Courts Rebuff Trump's New Immigration Restrictions
On Friday, January 27, President Donald Trump issued an executive order banning refugees and other visitors from seven predominantly Muslim countries. The following day, thousands of people began to gather at airports across the United States to protest. According to various sources, more than 2,000 people were at the protest at John F. Kennedy International Airport in Queens, New York City, with other protests appearing at airports in multiple states.
At San Francisco International Airport (SFO), over four thousand protesters showed up in support of migrants and against the Muslim ban, virtually shutting down the airport. Initially, US Customs and Border Protection denied holding any travelers at the airport. Five travelers had been detained and each was released by Sunday afternoon.
Airport demonstrations continued throughout the US on Sunday. In Northern California, not only San Francisco but Sacramento, San José, and Fresno airports also saw demonstrations. Also on Sunday, courts across the nation began to weigh in, with various jurisdictions halting parts of the ban in differing regions of the country. By Friday, February 3, a US District Court judge in Seattle ordered a nationwide stay on Trump's entire executive order.
