Thousands protest against Trump’s immigration order

President Trump’s order temporarily banning refugees arriving in the United States and barring those arriving from seven Muslim-majority countries caused confusion and panic among travellers, with some turned back from US-bound flights.

Tens of thousands of people rallied in US cities and at airports on Sunday to voice outrage over the executive order. In New York, Washington and Boston, a second wave of demonstrations followed spontaneous rallies that broke out at US airports on Saturday as US Customs and Border Protection agents began enforcing Trump’s directive. The protests spread westward as the day progressed.
