Tens of thousands of people rallied in US cities and at airports on Sunday to voice outrage over President Donald Trump’s executive order restricting entry into the country for travelers from seven Muslim-majority nations.
In New York, Washington, and Boston, a second wave of demonstrations began the afternoon after spontaneous rallies broke out at US airports on Saturday as US Customs and Border Protection agents began enforcing Trump’s directive. The protests on Sunday were expected to spread westward as the day progressed.
The president’s order, which bars admission of Syrian refugees and suspends travel to the US from Iraq, Iran, Sudan, and four other countries on national-security grounds, has led to the detention or deportation of hundreds of people arriving at US airports.
