Hundreds gathered at the Baltimore-Washington International Airport on Sunday to protest an executive order banning refugees from entering the United States.

Protesters carrying signs chanted, “no hate, no fear, immigrants are welcome here.”

On Sunday, social media reports said crowds were spilling out of the international terminal. Protesters held signs that read, “Welcome home,” and “No Ban, No wall,” among many others.

Sunday’s demonstration was among many at airports across the country in protest of an executive order signed Friday by President Donald Trump. The order blocks refugees from entering the United States for 120 days, and temporarily bans citizens from seven majority-Muslim countries from entry.
