Thousands protest immigration ban at BWI

Roughly 2,000 people packed BWI Airport’s international terminal Sunday night to protest President Donald Trump’s recent executive order restricting immigration.

People came from across the Washington and Baltimore metro areas. There were families with young children, and people of all races and religions.

Shakeela Shabbir came to the protest from Ellicott City with her husband and two kids, who are 10 and 11.

“It’s not just because it’s a big airport like JFK or LAX that we should go and speak up against injustice,” Shabbir said. “Wherever we can, we should reach out, we should reach and we should say that we are standing against all the people in all the airports in the United States.”
