Trump’s order targets refugees and travelers from seven predominantly Muslim countries, but demonstrators at RDU pledged Sunday that Muslims and refugees were welcome in the Triangle.
“I’m hoping protests across the country will show solidarity to immigrants, especially Muslim immigrants,” said Phaedra Kelly of Carrboro. “I hope it sends a message to the Democrats in Congress that they need to speak out fervently and maybe get a couple GOP to speak out as well. Because the ban is unconstitutional.”
