National Airport gets protest against Muslim travel ban, court overturns Trump’s executive order

On Wed, Feb 1, as many as 1,500 protesters against Donald Trumps’ (now on hold) Muslim travel ban jammed an area of Washington National Airport near an information counter. The protest began with about 600 people and grew over the following hour.

Update Feb 5: Federal court action has overturned the Muslim Ban, blocking any further enforcement for the moment. Due to a conflicting opinion from another court, this will go to appeals and possibly all the way to the US Supreme Court.
