Ban on Immigrants

Hundreds of people in Blacksburg are making their voices heard as they oppose President Trump’s travel ban on immigrants and refugees from several mostly-Muslim countries. Henderson Lawn was filled yesterday with people born in Virginia and overseas. Franklin Harrison who has lived in Blacksburg since he was a child calls the President’s executive order “corrupt and terrible.” Organizers say the nationwide rallies are the beginning of a bi-partisan movement to make communities safe and welcoming.
