No Muslim ban ever march

Protesters rallied against Trump's travel ban in DC


Protesters on Wednesday gathered in Washington, D.C. to demonstrate against President Trump's travel ban, arguing it unfairly targets Muslims.

A rally across from the White House in Lafayette Park as part of the #NoMuslimBanEver campaign was timed to coincide with the latest version of the rule taking effect.

"We will continue to resist this immoral and unconstitutional Muslim Ban and any new bans in all its forms, in all venues, and in all ways - no matter how long it may take to achieve justice," a website for the #NoMuslimBanEver march said before the protests.

Two federal judges - one in Hawaii and another in Maryland - earlier Wednesday blocked most of Trump's travel ban from taking effect.

The ban would block individuals from Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Chad, Venezuela and North Korea from entering the U.S.

Trump's administration has argued the ban will protect America's national security, but critics counter it discriminates against Muslim-majority nations.
