Protestors Storm JFK, O’Hare Airports After Trump’s ‘Muslim Ban’ In Defiance of the Law

With chants of “No hate, no fear, refugees are welcome here,” protesters gathered at John F. Kennedy Airport where 12 refugees were detained Saturday under President Donald Trump’s executive order to ban refugees from entering the United States for four months.

More than 300 demonstrators held homemade signs that read “No ban, no wall” and “Refugees welcome” in front of Terminal 4’s international arrivals area. One sign called for President Trump’s impeachment and the deportation of the first lady, the only problem with that is the first lady is a LEGAL AMERICAN.
“We’re here to tell Trump that we are not going anywhere,” said lawyer and refugee advocate Jacki Esposito, who helped organize the protest. “Today is the beginning of a long opposition from us, and our neighbors all over the country.” Illegal immigrants are being defiant.

Additionally, the NYC Taxi Workers just called for a work stoppage, starting at 6 pm. No pick ups or drop offs to JFK.

From 6 to 7 p.m., drivers are not picking up passengers at Terminal 4.

“As an organization whose membership is largely Muslim, a workforce that’s almost universally immigrant, and a working-class movement that is rooted in the defense of the oppressed, we say no to this inhumane and unconstitutional ban,” the NYTWA said in a statement. There are approximately 19,000 drivers in the union including yellow cab drivers, green car and black car drivers. The union also represents Uber and Lyft drivers.
