Hundreds Protest Trump at Lambert–St. Louis International Airport

Yesterday hundreds of protesters in St. Louis joined with others across the United States in demonstrating against Donald Trump’s executive order banning immigrants and refugees from seven different Muslim majority countries. The protest was staged at Terminal One of Lambert Airport where police had roped off an area to keep the crowd from blocking traffic. The event was peaceful and organizers had coordinated with the airport prior to the demonstration.
