Celebrities Express Outrage Over Immigration Ban on Social Media

Even the Kardashians are upset!

Outrage and protests over President Trump’s executive order banning Syrian refugees and citizens of seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the U.S. began to snowball Saturday as federal officials began implementing the controversial immigration policy enacted Friday.

Protestors flocked to the airports across the country yesterday (Jan. 28, 2017) to express their outrage and support for the refugees and airport detainees.

The American Civil Liberties Union announced Saturday evening that a federal court in New York had issued an emergency stay on President Trump’s executive order banning immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries.

The court’s decision, which will affect people who have been detained in airports, came after the ACLU and other activist groups filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of two Iraqis who were held at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York as a result of the order.

“I hope Trump enjoys losing. He’s going to lose so much we’re going to get sick and tired of his losing,” ACLU national political director Faiz Shakir told Yahoo News shortly after the decision was announced.

Throughout all of this, celebrities expressed their anger over the ban, empathized with all of those who were affected by the ban and supported the protestors on social media.
