Airport protests against Muslim ban spread across the U.S. via social media


Organising on social media under the hashtag #MuslimBan, Americans gathered at airports across the country Saturday to protest President Donald Trump’s travel ban on Muslim immigrants.

Trump signed the executive order Friday, which included a 90-day travel ban for citizens of Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia or Yemen, as well as a 120-day suspension of the U.S. refugee program.  The move threw lives immediately into chaos, cancelling the travel plans of approved refugees and seeing those with valid U.S. visas turned away at transit stops or removed from planes.
