Things We Saw Today: Protests Against the #MuslimBan Grow


Protests against Trump’s ban on refugees and immigrants from 7 Muslim-majority countries continued in force today in cities across the U.S. Many cities which held airport protests on Saturday night were back on the streets this Sunday, and other cities planned new airport protests. Among the protest sites was Dulles Airport, where Customs and Border Protection officials are reportedly violating a court order and refusing to speak to members of Congress.

  • Ride-sharing just got even more political. During last night’s protests, Lyft announced a $1 million donation to the ACLU. Uber, on the other hand, got rid of surge pricing from JFK Airport while NYC taxi drivers were holding a strike in support of refugees. Many pointed out that Uber’s actions looked suspiciously like strike-breaking, and CEO Travis Kalanick’s lukewarm response to Trump’s refugee and immigrants bans didn’t help. A #DeleteUber campaign kicked up on Twitter. (Via The Hollywood Reporter)
