President Trump's executive order on “extreme vetting” has people up in arms over at JFK Airport in Queens, New York.

It all started when Hameed Darweesh, an Iraqi interpreter, was detained at the airport, via the president's executive order on refugees.

Darweesh was in custody for eighteen hours before being released.

Since then, the scene at JFK has been chaotic.

Protesters have swarmed the airport.

Some are chanting “Let them in” in unison:

Others “Refugees are welcome here”:

As well “No deportation”:

And the protest signs don't mince words about how the people chanting feel:

But it's not just protesters who have been causing a scene. The New York Taxi Workers Alliance, which oversees the interests of more than 50,000 cab drivers in the city, has announced that it will be halting picking up from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM.

Meanwhile, President Trump has not addressed the situation, nor has he made any further comments on the issue since the signing of his executive order.
