Thousands at airports across America protest Trump Muslim ban

Huge protests are growing at the nation’s biggest airports in New York, DC, Chicago and Los Angeles to protest Donald Trump’s blanket ban on Muslim immigrants from a variety of Middle Eastern countries that coincidentally he doesn’t have business in.

The citizen reports from the various airports are remarkable. We don’t really protest like this in America, not to this degree. The recent women’s march was remarkable enough, and having it in so many cities across the country (and the world). But now this. This is not usual. Trump has unleashed something.

UPDATE: A judge has reportedly granted an emergency stay, halting Trump’s executive order nationwide. Woah.

Here’s New York’s JFK airport:

The NYPD had initially blocked protesters from entering the airport via the AirTrain. That has been now overruled by Gov. Cuomo:

And the protesters are flowing again:

New York airport cabbies are going on strike in solidarity with the banned immigrants:

Immigration lawyers are showing up at JFK to help those in need:

And they’re looking for similar help from translating at LAX in Los Angeles:

And here’s the scene at Dulles Airport in Norther Virginia — DC’s international airport:

More from Dulles:

Dallas Fort Worth airport as well:

And car traffic has been shut down at O’Hare in Chicago:

Lots of personal stories coming out of this:

Like this man:

Or these young women:

Meanwhile, Donald Trump thinks everything is going great:

But the response of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was perhaps best of all. In a clear swipe at Donald Trump, Trudeau tweeted a welcome today to a Middle Eastern looking young girl:
