Inside the LAX Protest Over Trump’s Muslim Ban

On Saturday, protesters turned out in large numbers at LAX’s Tom Bradley International Terminal to protest the detentions of travelers following President Trump’s executive order to ban travelers from Muslim countries. By 4 p.m. a crowd of thousands of demonstrators streamed through the lower level of terminal. The ACLU estimates that more than 100 people traveling to LAX from Muslim countries were detained over the weekend.
