SUA: PROTESTE SOROȘISTE ANTI-TRUMP ÎN TOATĂ AMERICA, exact ca și cele din România
CNN - Protesters mass at airports to decry Trump's immigration policies
Protesters gathered at airports cross the United States on Saturday to complain about President Donald Trump's immigration policies, with more protests scheduled for Sunday.
This was the second weekend of demonstrations, with more than 1 million people coming out last weekend for the Women's March.
Olivia Katbi Smith told CNN affiliate KATU she showed up Saturday at Portand International Airport because she believes Trump's immigration policies are cruel.
"I think it's horrific and terrible and we are basically condemning people to death by not allowing them to come here," she said.
She said the event appeared to be impromptu. She heard about it on Twitter and thinks most people did the same.
In New York City, a large crowd massed at John F. Kennedy International Airport to protest the detention of two Iraqis who were later released.
"Mr. President, look at us," said US Rep. Nydia Velazquez, a New York Democrat. "This is America. What you have done is shameful. It's un-American."
The protesters gathered in Terminal 4 at JFK and carried signs reading, "We are all immigrants!" and "No ban! No wall!"
Several New York officials showed support for the protests.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo ordered the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to reverse an earlier decision to restrict passage aboard the JFK Airport AirTrain to ticketed passengers and airport employees only. He also instructed state police and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to assist with security and transportation for protesters.
"The people of New York will have their voices heard," Cuomo said.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio tweeted: "What's happening at JFK is shameful. @NYCImmigrants Affairs Commissioner Nisha Agarwal is on the ground now working to help."
