Tan sólo 48 horas después de que el Presidente de los Estados Unidos, Donald J. Trump, firmara la orden ejecutiva que prohíbe la entrada de individuos provenientes de Irán, Irak, Libia, Somalia, Sudán, Siria y Yemen – países mayoritariamente musulmanes – las multitudes tomaron los aeropuertos principales del país en manifestación por lo que consideran “un acto extremo de racismo”.

Decenas de personas se manifestaron hoy en Nueva York en apoyo a las comunidades musulmanas e inmigrantes de la ciudad este viernes 27 de enero. La manifestación fue convocada en respuesta a los planes del presidente Donald Trump de suspender la entrada a Estados Unidos de los nacionales de una serie de países en un plazo de 30 días desde la entrada en vigor de la orden. Aunque no menciona explícitamente a ningún país, la orden dice que las naciones afectadas serán las incluidas en la lista de Estados patrocinadores del terrorismo que elabora el Departamento de Estado (Irán, Sudán y Siria), así como los designados como países de preocupación por el Departamento de Seguridad Nacional (Libia, Somalia y Yemen).
