Hundreds of people gathered Sunday evening at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport to protest President Donald Trump’s travel ban.
The demonstration began at 5 p.m. at the airport’s arrival terminal.
People could be heard chanting,” immigrants are welcome here” and many had signs showing their support for those who are affected by this ban.

Maryland U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings addressed the protesters calling the demonstration “democracy in action.”
There have been several protests at airports around the country since the President’s executive order was signed.
President Trump released a statement regarding the executive order Sunday.
