Immigrant protests #JFKTerminal4 and 2pm at Battery Park today

January 29, 2017

I was excited to join the protest at JFK Airport last night. Here’s some footage:

And here’s two nice pictures:


One of the cool things about the protest is how messages were sent and spread through the chants. In particular I learned about another planned protest today at Battery Park at 2pm, which I believe is being organized by immigrant rights group Make the Road.

By the way, in case you’ve heard that a judge put a stay on the Executive Order about immigrants, there are plenty of reasons to question that. It’s also possible that border patrol agents are not obeying those orders.

    It’s hard to fathom, but I’m imagining possibly 200+ wks. of these sorts of events in our future!

    Sorry I missed seeing you there! I only showed up at 10pm. But I got videos and photos:

    Cathy — I don’t know what doubt there can be that the judge put a stay on the Executive Order; the ACLU announced it outside the courthouse last night and it’s the banner headline in the Times today. The customs officials are ignoring it, but that’s a different question.

      Agreed. But also the stay only prevented people being returned. It did not guarantee entry.

      There’s more work to do.

    Am I right that disobeying a federal judge’s order is considered contempt of court, which is an impeachable offense?
