CLEVELAND -- President Donald Trump's immigration policies, which ban citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries entry into the U.S., have sparked protests across the nation, and right here in Cleveland.
A protest at Cleveland Hopkins Airport, presented on Facebook as the Emergency Cleveland Rally for Immigrants, Muslims, & Sanct Cities, took place Sunday afternoon.
Airport officials tell Fox 8 that about 400 people attended the rally, which was peaceful.
Cleveland Hopkins Airport on Sunday did take to twitter before the protest to caution protesters about complying with Cleveland police while at the rally.
"While we understand everyone's concern about the executive order, CLE has an application process for any demonstrations to occur legally on property 2 assure that they do not affect our operations. One has not been filed for the rumored immigration rally 2day so we ask that anyone who show up please follow instructions from the Cleveland Police Department so that we can maintain our normal operations for those traveling today."
More protests are planned for Sunday in Washington, Orlando, Boston, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Seattle, and Chicago, mostly at airports.
