About 500 protesters gathered in Washington, D.C., for the #NoMuslimBanEver March, protesting the Trump administration’s travel ban. The Daily Signal went to the #NoMuslimBanEver March to find out why they were protesting.
“I’m so upset to see many, many things this president is doing … to see him discriminate against a group of people, which creates hatred and prejudices in the country,” one protester said. “And when he makes statements like banning Muslims, then that makes people in the country suspicious of their Muslim neighbors, it makes them treat people badly, and creates this whole climate of hatred.”
The rally was in protest of the third iteration of the Trump administration’s travel ban—which was supposed to go into effect on Oct. 18, but was blocked by federal judges in Maryland and Hawaii. Check out the video above to see what the protesters had to say.
