WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Officials from Delaware joined a protest against an executive order barring refugees from coming into the United States.

The News Journal reports (https://delonline.us/2jGMJO5 ) that Delaware leaders including Congresswoman Lisa Blunt Rochester and Senator Tom Carper attended a protest at the International Arrivals terminal of Philadelphia International Airport on Sunday. In a tweet Carper said he would “speak with officials and demand that refugees are not detained or denied entry.”

Protests have erupted at airports in cities across the United States in response to an executive order signed Friday by President Donald Trump that bars any refugees from entering the country for 120 days, imposes a 90-day travel ban to the U.S. for citizens of seven majority-Muslim countries and indefinitely blocks any Syrians from coming to America.
