Chaos, Anger As Trump Order Halts Some Muslim Immigrants

1000's of chanting demonstrators blocked roadways, doorways and ticketing areas at airports throughout the nation Saturday to protest President Donald Trump's government order limiting Muslim entry into the United States.

Among the many easiest immigration promises for Trump to fulfill will be his vow to reverse Obama's govt orders.

Several people were waiting for relations who have been being detained by immigration officials.
