One immigrant’s response

From the Washington Post:

Thousands of demonstrators rallied outside the White House and in cities nationwide Sunday to protest President Trump’s refu­gee ban, as the executive order continued to halt travel in some locations, despite being weakened by federal judges overnight and having its constitutionality called into question as rulings spilled into Sunday.

In addition to Washington, large protests took place in New York, Philadelphia, Boston and Atlanta, and at airports in dozens of cities, as demonstrators created cheering sections for arriving refugees at Dulles International Airport in Northern Virginia.

In Washington, swarms of protesters amassed in front of the White House by 1 p.m., and the crowds proceeded to the nearby Trump International Hotel and U.S. Capitol. Later the group made its way back toward the White House, shutting down Pennsylvania Avenue. By evening, an impromptu Catholic Mass brought hundreds more to the lawn to resist Trump’s order.

It’s like there’s going to be a huge demonstration every week forever!
