Rally to Protest Trump's Muslim Ban

Sunday, January 29

"With just a few quick strokes of the pen, President Donald Trump on Friday banned -- temporarily, for now -- more than 134 million people from entering the United States.

Trump barred citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the US for at least the next 90 days ---by executive order, which a senior White House official said later Friday is likely just a first step toward establishing a broader ban." -- CNN

Yesterday, chaos ensued at US airports and abroad as people with valid visas and even green cards were detained when they landed on US soil, or were banned from getting onto planes headed for the US.  Protests began at airports around the countyr, and quick work by lawyers from the American Civil Liberties Union helped to resolve the situation for now, but only temporarily.  

Protests will continue today in our area at Newark and JFK airports, and at other places around the country - here's a list from ThinkProgress.org.
