Citizens unhappy with the executive order made by President Donald Trump, banning individuals from seven countries from entering the United States for a period of time, protested over the weekend in streets and in airports.
President Trump issued an executive order over the weekend banning more than 218 million individuals from being able to enter the United States, including refugees fleeing unstable environments. The seven countries that are banned from entering the United States include Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Yemen and Somalia.
In a tweet on Saturday President Trump stated:
Protesters upset with the executive action took to both airports and streets to express not only their anger, but their solidarity with those affected by the ban. Airports that saw a heavy amount of protestors included those in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Houston, Dallas, Washington and more.
While protests did erupt all over the country, some citizens were pleased with the new presidents actions.
Leaders from other countries also reacted to the change in U.S. policy. Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, responded to the situation by tweeting that Canada would welcome those that the United States would now.
