PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — More than 1,000 demonstrators have gathered at the Rhode Island State House to protest President Donald Trump’s order banning travelers from seven Muslim countries.
The protesters chanted, “The Muslim ban has got to go” and “No hate. No fear. Muslims are welcome here.”
Speakers criticized decisions made by Trump during his first week in office.
Providence Mayor Jorge Elorza called Trump’s actions “the acts of an insecure bully.” He said Providence will continue to be a sanctuary city for immigrants.
Gov. Gina Raimondo said Rhode Islanders will “stand strong against your Muslim ban.”
