Protest Against Refugee Ban at Twin Cities Airport
Minneapolis (Learfield News Service) - An estimated crowd of 100 protesters gathered at Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport to oppose the president's executive order banning refugee admissions from seven majority Muslim countries.
They gathered near the Terminal 1 international arrival gate Saturday evening. There were no reports of any arriving passengers at the airport being detained. Similar protests were held at other airports and sites around the country.
A US District judge in New York state issued an emergency order which temporarily barred people from the nations on that list from being deported. Those with a valid visa from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen will be protected until a final ruling is made.
